Grundfos India helps boost the Green Building movement
Company partners with IGBC to promote the Green Building Congress 2015
Ahmedabad, Gujarat, November 19, 2015: Grundfos Pumps India Pvt. Ltd. (Grundfos India) one of India’s leading pump manufacturers, participated in the Green Building Congress 2015. This three-day summit, scheduled from November 19 to 21, 2015 in Gujarat aims to promote the green building movement in the country. The summit is an interactive platform that will discuss the emerging trends in green buildings and facilitate the adoption of green products and equipment.
Globally, buildings account for more than 40 percent of the world’s total energy consumption and for 24 percent of the world's CO2 emissions. While pumps for example, use 10 % of the world’s total electricity and we can save 4 % by switching to energy-efficient pumps. To make India more sustainable, it is absolutely essential to adopt green and energy efficient technologies and infrastructure.
Grundfos India is a pioneer in promoting the Green Building concept in the country. The company’s headquarters in Chennai is India’s first gold-rated green building under LEED certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). It was later elevated to LEED EB Platinum Certification by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) in 2013. In 2014, the company also installed a rooftop solar power plant with an estimated annual power generation of 78000 kWh saving INR 13 lakhs annually. This results in the reduction of diesel consumption by 25000 liters annually and reduction of 70 tons of CO2 emission per year.
Commenting on Grundfos India’s association with the Green Building Congress 2015, Mahathi Parashuram, Head – Public Affairs & Marketing said, “The green building movement in the country has gained a new momentum with the growing focus on sustainable development. With the growing focus on initiatives like the Smart Cities Mission, green buildings will become the ‘new normal’. Grundfos has always been a trend setter in developing energy efficient water technologies that help make the planet cleaner and greener. Therefore, now and in the future, Grundfos will continue to spend our resources on promoting sustainability in all forms - among ourselves, our customers and business partners”.
