Today at a triumphant set up, Bestech India Pvt. Ltd. and GRIHA council announced their Collaboration for promotion and implementation of Green Building Concept and Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment (GRIHA) rating system for all its projects - current and upcoming Pan India, aggregating nearly 12 million sq. ft.
GRIHA shall work with Bestech to maximize awareness and outreach on Green initiatives through various publicity campaigns while Bestech becomes the first Real Estate Company to endorse one of such highest national ratings for Green Buildings.
This collaboration has resulted in Bestech to gain complete support and hand-holding from GRIHA to obtain certification, fast track rating and any other benefit as announced by the Government in this regard.
As part of the understanding Bestech shall align its Environment Department with GRIHA during whole projects’ duration to coordinate joint activities within the context of this MOU. Further GRIHA in collaboration with Bestech shall establish a review committee for smooth implementation of the Green Building Initiatives.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Dharmendra Bhandari, (Promoter, Bestech Group) said, “This collaboration reinforces our commitment towards the green movement in our country. Bestech has always worked towards implementing efficient methods and techniques, through which we achieve the optimum energy efficiency and conservation of resources. We will continue to work towards setting up processes by which our energy requirements are met through renewable energy sources”.
Mr. Sanjay Seth (Chief Executive Officer cum Secretary, GRIHA Council) said, “I welcome the initiative taken by BESTECH as the first large real estate developer towards integrating green concepts in their future structures. We, at GRIHA, undertake to build up internal capacities within the BESTECH Group to obtain GRIHA ratings for their upcoming housing and commercial projects. We are sure that other real estate companies will follow suit and transform the face of habitats in India.”
