With generation using new renewable energy, Lotte World Mall reduced more than 2,800 tons of CO₂ as of May this year. Also, Lotte World Tower will be the first new skyscraper to receive the LEED Gold standard.

Using new renewable energy including solar energy, heat, wind power, and geothermal power, Lotte World Mall produced 6,016Mwh of electricity. Calculating the figure of carbon dioxide savings amounts to 2,805 tons.

There are a total of 1,187 solar power generation modules, or 356.1Kw, on the 2,360 square metered rooftops of Lotte World Mall, and 108 solar heating collectors on the 305 square metere rooftop of Avenuel.

Also, the group is currently operating 16 hybrid streetlamps in Lotte World Mall and Seokchon Lake, which are able to produce electricity on their own using wind power and solar energy.

Also, Lotte World Mall installed the largest geothermal system 150 meters to 200 meters underground the mall to use air conditioning and heating. Also, it produces 800 Kw of electricity by converting the chemical energy of hydrogen and oxygen in fuel cells of the energy center into electric energy.

Lotte Corp. CEO Noh Byung-yong said, “Lotte World Mall and Tower is becoming an eco-friendly green complex that protects the environment and reduces energy and greenhouse gases for future generations. By minimizing energy consumption and loss, we are planning to replace 14.5 percent of the total energy consumption with renewable energy in the future.”
