Grundfos Pumps India Pvt. Ltd (Grundfos India)'s headquarters in Chennai has received the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) EB Platinum Certification by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI). Grundfos is one of the first companies to go in for voluntary recertification of its existing building.
Inaugurated in March 2005, Grundfos India’s headquarters holds the distinction of being the first gold-rated green building in India under LEED certification by USGBC.
This has now been upgraded by this recent certification to a ‘LEED EB Platinum Certified’ building.
The certification was based on parameters such as sustainability features, water efficiency, resource management and indoor environmental quality.
