True to its Tata heritage, Voltas shares in global concerns : energy depletion, global warming, environmental degradation, waste accumulation. For Voltas, these are also opportunities to make a global difference. To address these needs, Voltas harnesses
world-class technologies, such as those featured in 'Green' buildings.

'A green building uses less energy, water and natural resources, creates less waste and is healthier for the people living inside compared to a standard building.'


Tangible benefits
:

  • Reduction in operating energy and water costs right from day one, during the entire life cycle of the building
  • Energy savings of 25-40%
  • Water savings of 30 – 40% depending on the extent of green features implemented

Savings would be in reduction in first costs and enhanced asset value.

Intangible benefits :

  • Increasing health and productivity of occupants due to better indoor air quality
  • Safety benefits
  • Implementation of best operational practices from day one
  • A 'green' corporate image

LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design)

A building's 'green' status is quantified through the LEED Rating System. The total points scored under six categories qualify the building either for basic LEED certification or higher LEED certification levels such as Silver, Gold or Platinum status.
