Real es­tate pri­vate eq­uity firm Ireo has an­nounced its col­lab­o­ra­tion with the GRIHA (Green Rat­ing for In­te­grated Habi­tat As­sess­ment) Coun­cil for im­ple­ment­ing Green Build­ing con­cepts and the GRIHA Rat­ing vari­ants for its projects. The com­pany has al­ready reg­is­tered about 8 mil­lion square feet build­ing foot­print with GRIHA Coun­cil and is in the process of reg­is­ter­ing an ad­di­tional foot- print of 2 mil­lion square feet. Un­der this col­lab­o­ra­tion, Ireo is com­mit­ted to ob­tain GRIHA rat­ing for its sig­nif­i­cant up­com­ing and fu­ture projects.

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.

“We, at GRIHA Coun­cil, un­der­take to build up in­ter­nal ca­pac­i­ties within Ireo to ob­tain GRIHA rat­ing for their up­com­ing hous­ing and com­mer­cial projects,” adds San­jay Seth, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, GRIHA Coun­cil.
