Welspun One's Bhiwandi project receives Platinum rated Green project under IGBC
Since its beginning, Welspun One Logistics Parks, a pan-India integrated fund, growth, and asset management system has ingrained ESG (Environment, Social & Governance) practices to its core values, to an extent that it is regulating every company decision they tackle. The business is determined to present top quality sustainable warehousing solutions by integrating green infrastructure, industry-leading engineering and ecosystem-based approaches. For this, Welspun One's flagship Bhiwandi project was recently awarded as India's 1st Platinum Pre-certified Green Logistics Park from the prestigious Indian Green Building Council (IGBC), a part of the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII).
Welspun One organized a distinctive sapling plantation drive on World Environment Day to commemorate this achievement and in parallel invited its own community to plant trees and also bring to a fresh environment. As a part of the initiative, the company gifted over 500 saplings to its employees at the Bhiwandi Park and various partners & associates, while adhering to the COVID-19 protocols. To create further awareness on reducing carbon footprint, the company also donated saplings to the occupants of Bapgaon Naka and Chaudharpada village close to the playground.
About the certification, Anshul Singhal, Managing Director, Welspun One Logistics Parks, stated,"We are committed to designing a high-performing logistics park in accordance with that the IGBC Green Logistics Parks & Warehousing rating method. Our under-construction park was awarded this coveted certification following a rigorous evaluation and approval process, which makes it a matter of fantastic pride for us all. We appreciate CII - Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) for its initiative taken and pledge to keep on working towards our common objective of producing a long-term and purposeful effect."
Founded in July 2020 and now under development, Welspun One's logistics park in Bhiwandi has been designed according to international standards and Green Building Certification requirements. The project design boosts natural habitat and biodiversity onsite by supplying over 12% of green cover, such as 2770 trees. The park intends to attain a 37% decrease in water use by installing rainwater harvesting and wastewater treatment methods when utilizing low-flow fixtures. The business is also dedicated to ensuring that 96% of the construction waste be diverted for recycling or reuse and approximately 68% of the material employed in the job be ecologically sound.
Well linked with bus stops, NH 3 & 4, and the Mumbai Airport - the job is slated to help the decrease in carbon footprint through vehicular traffic. Along with this playground, Welspun One is also working towards eco-friendly steps past the fence like the installation of solar PV systems, road lights, the renovation of public bathrooms, and other similar facilities for the societal well-being of occupants in neighboring cities and communities.
Welspun One has become the first company in its own group to enroll under the pilot program and get a pre-certification of this new evaluation system 'IGBC Green Logistics Parks and Warehouses.'
