As part of the MoU, GRIHA Council will be helping the company in setting up a project implementation unit for executing GRIHA certification and shall work with the company to maximise awareness and outreach on green initiatives through publicity campaign, marketing, collaterals and dedicated link to GRIHA Council website.
The real estate firm along with collaboration of GRIHA Council shall establish a review committee to monitor and provide guidance for smooth implementation of the green building initiative.
“Ireo’s vision of multiplying ‘quality of life’ revolves around a few key principles of environmentally sound and sustainable development like conservation of resources, design for minimum waste, energy efficient buildings including use of renewable energy such as solar, prevention of pollution and use of futuristic technology such as automation, etc. This collaboration with GRIHA will reinforce this commitment and helps us benchmark against the highest national standards,” says Pankaj Dugar, CEO, Ireo.
