Company Overview

Green Bakery

Tasty Baking understands the importance of keeping Philadelphia a great place to live and work. You can see evidence of that at our bakery in Philadelphia’s Navy Yard.

We started with an abandoned industrial site and reused the buildings as foundation material for our new bakery. This avoided clearing a forest and reduced construction waste.

We then built our bakery with several features that earned it LEED Silver Certification. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and it is awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED is a rating system for green buildings.

The following features of Tasty Baking’s Navy Yard bakery are included in the LEED standards:

  • A white, reflective roof that minimizes heat-absorbing surfaces, which contribute to global warming
  • No-mow, drought-resistant grass that uses less water
  • Half of the wood used in the building and all the wood doors come from certified sustainable sources that work to conserve trees
