Welcomhotel Amritsar Becomes Punjab’s 1st Leed Platinum Certified Hotel

ITC Hotels-the First and Largest chain of hotels in the World, with maximum LEED Platinum Certified Properties has been accorded another accolade. Embodying the ethos of ‘Responsible Luxury’, Welcomhotel Amritsar is now Punjab’s ‘First LEED Certified Hotel’ under the aegis of USGBC (US Green Building Council). Spread across eight acres, Welcomhotel Amritsar has achieved a Platinum rating under LEED 2011 for India NC (New Construction) program within just seven months of its launch. 

Welcomhotel Amritsar met the coveted rating for energy efficiency by using 33% less energy, reducing the water consumption by 46%, developing rain water harvesting capacity of 30% of the peak rainfall, and reducing the cooling demand with over 75% of roof area covered with high Solar Reflective Index tiles, among many such sustainable initiatives. 

Commenting on this momentous achievement, Nakul Anand, Executive Director-ITC Ltd said “ITC Hotels is committed to sustainable business practices. As per USGBC built to LEED or LEED equivalency doesn’t exist-there is no substitute to LEED certification. This is a proud moment for the Welcomhotel brand. Green buildings are energy efficient, utilize renewable energy, conserve and recycle water while taking concrete steps to preserve the eco-system around them. Our commitment to Responsible Luxury has given ITC Hotels the unique distinction of being the greenest luxury hospitality chain in the world.”
