ITC Mughal is the first hotel globally to be awarded the LEED Zero Water Certification by US Green Building Council. This is in line with ITC’s commitment to scale newer heights in creating a Climate Positive and Future Tech Enterprise.
The certification verifies net zero goals and the certification signals market leadership in the built environment. As part of its efforts to be self-sufficient, ITC Mughal has been following a sustainable process which ensures that water requirements for its buildings and processes are met by capturing rainwater and treating it for appropriate consumption.
The LEED Zero is the new standard for global cities, communities, and buildings as they strive to achieve a sustainable future. In LEED Zero Water, a balance is maintained between total potable water consumption and total alternative or recycled water use.
