Lemon Tree Premier City Centre Pune received the Gold Certification for green practices by the Indian Green Building Council (I.G.B.C.).
Lemon Tree Premier City Centre Pune has been designed based on I.G.B.C. standards which bring together a host of sustainable practices and solutions to reduce the environmental impact of buildings. Lemon Tree uses green building design as an integrated approach while designing its hotels, and it considers the life cycle impact of resources used.
Speaking on the occasion, Patu Keswani, Chairman & Managing Director, Lemon Tree Hotels Ltd. said, “This endorsement of another Lemon Tree property by I.G.B.C. reinforces our focus on ESG. Our design approach looks at building hotels sustainably and is centred on reducing the carbon footprint of the hotel.”
Patu Keswani continued, ” This is done by transitioning towards renewable energy, recycling, and reusing water to reach a zero discharge goal, and through the use of equipment and accessories that reduce the hotel’s demand for power and water. Our forward plan is to certify all our hotels as Gold and we have been building all our owned hotels to IGBC’s Gold specifications since 2012.”
