    The Seoul Metropolitan Government has decided to reinforce its requirements concerning new and renewable energy consumption and the mandatory use of LED lights by new buildings in a bid to emerge as a green city.

    The environmental impact assessment of the city, therefore, will be strengthened to reflect the new building requirements: the use of new & renewable energy will be increased from 6% in 2012 to 10% in 2014, and that of high efficiency LED lighting from 25% in 2012 to 50% in 2014 in terms of load.

    Following consultation with experts and civic groups, the municipal government will proceed with a revision of the city ordinance concerned with environmental impact assessment.
