Delta India Electronics announced its Rudrapur plant has
achieved LEED certification as Gold-rated” green building and received the
honor from the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC).
LEED certification is an international standards system
for green building design based on the U.S. Leadership in Energy & Environmental
Design (LEED) system. The Rudrapur plant was built in 2008 to support Delta’s
commitment to the environment.
Delta continues to develop eco-friendly,
energy-efficient manufacturing and products and we are committed to
constructing all future Delta facilities as green buildings. The LEED
certification of the Rudrapur plant not only serves as significant recognition
for our green practices, but also demonstrates Delta’s dedication to a green
and sustainable Earth environment,” said Yancey
Hai, vice chairman and CEO, Delta Electronics.
The Rudrapur factory consumes 35 percent less energy
compared to a conventional building of the same size. It is designed using
energy efficient architecture, natural sky-lighting and ventilation, rain water
harvesting and water re-cycling, as well as using eco-friendly building
materials that provide a clean, healthy and safe workplace for employees.For
harmony with nature and the local community, every detail of the factory is in
sync with the green building spirit. For instance, approximately 60 percent of
the total area of the factory has been kept open and green.
The LEED certified green factory in Rudrapur
incorporates Delta’s renewable energy technologies and solutions. The
certification recognizes all of our efforts in reducing the environmental
impact of our business operations, daily processes, products, buildings and
R&D. We are committed to energy savings and environmental protection that
helps diminish the serious threat of global warming. In addition, it also
confirms our efforts to go beyond mere compliance with ecological guidelines,”
said Dalip Sharma, managing director of Delta India Electronics.

located in Rudrapur, Gurgaon, Pondicherry and two R&D centers in Gurgaon
