Indian Building Receives Highest LEED Score Ever

A Bayer MaterialScience building in Greater Noida, India, has been awarded the top ranking in the international Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system.

Located outside of New Delhi, the zero-energy building was awarded Platinum in the category New Construction, receiving 64 out of a possible 69 points, the highest score ever awarded (so far).

The building scored top points across the following categories: Water Efficiency, Indoor Environmental Quality, and Innovation and Design.

Opened in early 2011, the Bayer Material Science office building was built according to the principles of the EcoCommercial Building Program, a global network of experts under the leadership of Bayer MaterialScience and dedicated to sustainable building.

One of the many features housed within the building is a photovoltaic system that generates more energy than it consumes, all with zero CO2 emissions. Polyurethane-based materials were used for the insulation, enabling a 70-percent reduction in electricity consumption compared with a conventional building in the tropical region. Besides the thermal insulation, special protection against the sun and energy-saving techniques in the building management system contribute to total primary energy savings as high as 42 percent.

“The Platinum Award is a clear indication that the concept of ecologically sustainable building can be achieved with the right materials, regardless of whether in the developed world or in an emerging market,” said Thomas Roemer, Head of the Construction & Building industry platform at Bayer MaterialScience. “We hope that we can motivate builders and developers to engage more strongly in sustainable building.”
