The newly constructed Hall 4 at the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC) has been honoured with Gold ratings by both Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) under its New Building rating system and US Green Building Council (USGBC) under its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating level.
IGBC rating programme covers methodologies to cover diverse climatic zones and changing lifestyles. LEED certification is an official recognition that a project complies with the requirements prescribed within the LEED rating systems as created and maintained by USGBC. It is an internationally accepted benchmark for design, construction and operation of green buildings.
Jamshyd Godrej, Chairman – Exhibitions, IMTMA, noted, “Getting the Gold certifications from IGBC as well as USGBC accentuates BIEC’s commitment to promoting a sustainable environment for exhibition organizers as well as visitors.”
