What is LEED?
LEED certification is awarded to buildings that reduce their climate impact; enhance human health; protect and restore water resources; protect and enhance biodiversity and ecosystem services; promote sustainable and regenerative material cycles, and enhance the overall quality of life for the community.
LEED helps companies meet their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals and provides investors with a robust and globally recognised green building framework to measure and manage real-estate performance.
“It is our constant vision at Vitesco Technologies to address technological, geopolitical, sociological, and climatic change challenges that affect not just the automobile industry but also our society,” said Anurag Garg, Managing Director, and Country Head of Vitesco Technologies India.
