Tata Housing Development Company Limited has been the biggest proponent of green initiatives in the Indian real estate space. It pioneered sustainable green developments at a time when such a concept did not exist. As a responsible corporate citizen, all projects of Tata Housing are sustainable green developments under the guidelines of Indian Green Building Council (IGBC).
The company's first green development executed under this motto is Xylem, which is also Bengaluru's first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environment Design) gold-certified green IT Park. This IT Park has been designed to tackle the ‘sick building syndrome,’ with its major focus on occupants’ health with an ergonomic design and architecture. The design boosts employee productivity as well as helps reduce the operational cost of the building. Xylem has received the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED-Gold) rating. This is one of the most environmentally friendly buildings of its size in the entire country.
The company's other properties such as Aquila Heights in Bengaluru and Raisina Residency in Gurgaon are also IGBC gold certified green developments, while the company’s premium luxury villas at Lonavala are platinum rated by IGBC.
As on today, Tata Housing is developing over 44 million sq. ft., which is under various stages of developments, all built under the guidelines drawn by IGBC.
We at Tata Housing aim to provide our customers a whole-building approach in all key areas of human and environmental health with natural ventilation and illumination, designed to work with the exterior environment. These advanced standards optimize comfort and utility thereby contributing to an excellent living and working lifestyle.
