Green building certification

LEED Certification of DLF Emporio

Buildings represent a large fraction of global carbon emissions and energy consumption. In addition, shopping centres affect local communities in several ways. By integrating sustainability measures into our daily operations, we aim to do more than expected to achieve sustainable development. We have long promoted sustainable solutions through integrated energy planning. We have brought together the architects, building designers, and technology specialists to retrofit the existing buildings. Firstgreen has worked on some of the best projects of India such as LEED Platinum Volume project of DLF group which has been approved by USGBC as a part of country’s first LEED EBOM volume project. The DLF Emporio, DLF Mall of India , DLF Cyber Greens, DLF Plaza tower, Ericssion, DLF Square are some of our LEED Platinum rated buildings from USGBC. We have also registered the green building projects through GRIHA as well as IGBC.

Overview

DLF Emporio constructed in 2004.  The building is of 305000 Sq Ft, including G+3  retail Level, cafeteria and  multiplexes. LEED certification first became a goal of the DLF group for its commercial and retail building in early 2011. DLF  hired Firstgreen  to perform a LEED Assessment to explore what would be needed to meet the LEED-EB requirements at varying certification levels for its all building. Firstgreen Consulting analyzed all its buildings and it was realized that most of the DLF group buildings were well-positioned  to earn LEED Platinum Certification. DLF Emporio is located in Vasant Kunj, New Delhi.  The LEED EBOM implementation process  planted  in April 2019. The  project had three month performance period from May 2019 to July 2019 for all credits.
