Infosys Hyderabad building gets green tag

| | Updated on: Apr 19, 2012

Infosys has received LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) India Platinum rating by Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) for its office at its Pocharam campus in Hyderabad. This is the fourth Infosys building that has been rated a Platinum rating, taking the total platinum certified building area at the company to over 1 million sq. ft.

LEED rating is given to buildings that are designed conforming to a green code developed by IGBC.

The block that won the rating uses radiant cooling technology – a first in a commercial building in the country, ensuring high standards for energy efficiency. Infosys set a target to become a carbon neutral firm by 2018, Mr Ramadas Kamath, senior Vice-President and Head of Infrastructure of Infosys, said here in a statement.

He said that the building design would reduce water consumption by 48 per cent. All of waste water from the campus would be treated on site.

The design allows over 90 per cent of office space to get natural light, reducing the need for artificial lighting during daytime. Carbon dioxide levels in the building are monitored continuously to ensure good air quality for occupants, he said.
