L&T Infotech adds value to prestigious companies worldwide by providing cutting-edge technology solutions. And now, it adds a greener edge to its offerings.
L&T Infotech Technology Centre -1, at Powai in Mumbai, was converted into a Green Building and the US Green Building Council has conferred upon it the Gold Rating LEED certified Green Building status. This coveted certification marks a significant milestone in L&T Infotech's approach towards sustainable development.
In order to convert the building into a Green Building, the Centre enhanced its energy performance by adopting environment-friendly initiatives as well as major and minor changes. Major initiatives included installing of motion sensors in washrooms, using eco-friendly chemicals for cleaning, recycling of PET bottles used in the office, use of environment-friendly refrigerants, replacement of CFL bulbs with LEDs, use of aerated drinking water taps, and sprinkler water taps for gardening etc.
The building was given an Energy Star Rating of 88 (released by Bureau of Energy Efficiency) i.e. the energy performance of the building is better than 87% of similar buildings. We are in the process of converting other existing office buildings into certified LEED green buildings.
