Embassy REIT Becomes Largest USGBC LEED Platinum Certified Office Portfolio in India

LEED Platinum Certified Office

The Green Business Certification Inc (GBCI) has accorded Embassy Office Parks REIT – India’s first listed REIT and the largest office REIT in Asia by area – with the distinction of operating and maintaining the largest USGBC LEED Platinum v4.1 O+M certified office portfolio in India, thereby conforming to one of the highest sustainability rating globally.


LEED is an international symbol of sustainability excellence and green building leadership that signifies a building is reducing carbon emissions, conserving resources, reducing operating costs, prioritizing sustainable practices and creating a healthier environment. Embassy REIT achieved the impressive feat of receiving LEED Platinum v4.1 O+M certification for over 9.45 mn sqft simultaneously for 29 buildings across Pune, Mumbai and Noida.

With this, all of Embassy REIT’s properties in these three cities are now LEED Platinum certified for following the highest operational standards for sustainability. Further, majority of Embassy REIT’s properties situated in Bengaluru are Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) Platinum-rated campuses and are currently undergoing assessment for USGBC certifications. Commenting on bagging the certification, Michael Holland, Chief Executive Officer, Embassy REIT, said, “We are committed to provide healthy and energy-efficient sustainable workspaces to our 200+ blue-chip occupier base and their employees and are constantly undertaking initiatives to monitor and reduce the carbon footprint of all our properties in line with our 75/25 Programme – 75 per cent renewable power by 2025 – and our longer term 2040 net zero target.”
