Green recognition for India's Kempegowda International Airport

Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport has become the first Indian gateway to be awarded a GreenCo Platinum rating by the Confederation of Indian Industry’s Green Business Centre.

HOK provided design and planning services for the expansion of Terminal 1, which has previously earned LEED Gold certification from the Indian Green Building Council.

Bengaluru International Airport Limited’s president of airport operations, Hari Marar, enthuses: “We see this rating as a testimony toward our efforts in building an energy efficient and green airport.

“The award was evaluated on criterion like implementation of water-saving projects, energy efficiency, utilisation of renewable energy, greenhouse gas emission, waste management, optimising the three Rs of reduce, reuse and recycle, and green supply chain, among others.”
