The company has been recognized for its LEED Platinum rated constructed manufacturing facility in Chennai, which is the first-of-its-kind in India. Danfoss’s commitment towards sustainable development via its energy-efficient products, green initiatives at the Oragadam campus and finally, its ongoing pan India CSR Programmes driving Sustainability are some the key contributing factors for the award.
