ITC Green Centre sets an example for Gurgaon
The ITC Green Centre, certified as one of the world’s greenest buildings last year, showcases how such structures can be both eco-friendly yet commercially viable, even in a city reeling under acute water scarcity and sinking groundwater level.
Located in the city’s new industrial hub, the ITC (Indian Tobacco Company) Green Centre, a 170,000 square foot office complex, had bagged the prestigious LEEDS Platinum Award in 2004, the first by any corporate house in India.
LEEDS, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is given by the US Green Building Council (USGBC), for outstanding commitment to the environment.
Significantly, the USGBC has re-certified the ITC Green Centre in 2012 as the world’s highest (Platinum) rated green building. Platinum is followed by three other categories, namely Gold, Silver and Certified.
“This building may not be a regular stop on the tourist map, and no one would confuse it with the Taj Mahal. But it is a monument to the future,” said Hillary Clinton, then US secretary of state when she visited the Green Centre during her India trip.
The ITC Green Centre has been meticulously built to promote the highest environmental standards, both for the individuals working within the building and the neighbourhood.
