The Orientale: Well and Green

In line with the recent magisterial teaching of Pope Francis (Laudato si’, May 24, 2015), the Pontifical Oriental Institute has implemented a process of renovation of the building’s environment aimed at making the life of the academic community healthier and more pleasant.

New LED lighting has been installed throughout the building to:

  • reduce energy consumption for lighting by 88%;
  • optimize scholarly work at the level recommended internationally of 500 lumens/m².
