Business Wire IndiaClose on the heels of the LEED Gold Certification being awarded to the K Raheja Corp-owned Marriott Whitefield Bengaluru, India’s leading destination developer, with business diversified from real estate to retail, to hospitality to retail development, bags yet another award for its stunning, JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar. As front-runners in the hospitality industry, and in continuing to be committed to the green cause, it was only logical to extend to customers the environmentally sustainable benefits of a green hotel. The project has achieved a rating of 66 points in the Final Certification review of the Indian Green Building Council’s (IGBC) LEED 2011 for India.
Guests residing at the hotel become part of the larger sustainable cause which has multi-fold benefits. Each of them, as aware citizens, contribute towards curbing global warming as this hotel draws less power from the coal-based power plant and less water from the BMC administered lakes.
