Your social timelines are probably buzzing with people talking about going green – Brands and individuals all the same. Yes! Everyone is talking about going the green route. Rightly so, it is the Environment Month. It truly is mesmerizing to see the large number of people taking a stand on going green and talking about environmental sustainability.

And while a lot of you might actually ask the question – How long after this month will this beautiful path sustain?, you will be truly surprised as to how many individuals have made ‘Go Green’ their motto.

People today are only getting more aware and are spreading of the importance of a healthy and green surroundings. Right from reusing that broken mug to collecting dry and wet waste separately to using less energy; a conscious effort is being made to do things the right way. This practice is followed not just at home but also outside in offices and societies. While many might think that planting a tree in your society or recreating interesting ‘do it yourself’ pieces is something that is only talked about; there are a number of individuals who actually do it.

Organizations and business too have begun to realize the impact of environmental sustainability. This is why you’ll probably hear about office cleaning drives and workshops which educate employees on going green.
At Tata Housing we are doing our best to serve this purpose. We have made it our mission to create awareness of sustainable living, environment protection and ecological conservation. Since all good deeds must start from home first, we have pioneered the concept of sustainable living by developing green homes since 2007.

To spread awareness further, we joined hands with Padma Shri awardee Sudarshan Patnaik who created a beautiful piece of sand art which revolves around the United Nation’s theme for World Environment Day 2014 ‘Raise your voice, not the sea level’.

It is through combined effort of our small activities around environment sustainability that a larger impact will be felt. So, let’s join hands and go green!

With a view to contribute positively towards the society, Tata Housing Development Company Limited pioneered sustainable green developments in India at a time when such concept has just picked up pace in the west. It has been one of the biggest proponents of green initiatives in the Indian real estate space under the guidelines of Indian Green Building Council (IGBC). The company’s first green development executed under this motto is Xylem, which is also Bengaluru’s first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environment Design) Gold-certified green IT Park. The design boosts employee productivity as well as helps reduce the operational cost of the building. This is one of the most environmentally friendly buildings of its size in the entire country.

Tata Housing’s recently launched Myst is India’s first residential development designed using biophilic architecture, a design ethos that integrates nature and architecture to create living spaces that are invigorating and comforting. Myst’s unique design incorporates natural elements like flowing water, green roofs, and airy open living spaces to reconnect residents to nature. It’s an approach that brings residents closer to the pristine nature of the Kasauli hills, while presenting them with every luxury. The company’s other properties such as Aquila Heights, the tallest residential development in Bengaluru and Raisina Residency in Gurgaon are also IGBC gold certified green developments, while the company’s premium luxury villas – Prive at Lonavala are platinum rated by IGBC.

As on today, Tata Housing is developing over 44 million sq. ft., which is under various stages of developments, all built under the guidelines drawn by IGBC. Tata Housing aims to provide customers a whole-building approach in all key areas of human and environmental health with natural ventilation and illumination, designed to work with the exterior environment. These advanced standards optimize comfort and utility thereby contributing to an excellent living and working lifestyle.
