ITC Hotels has claimed to be the greenest luxury chain in the world, after being given Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum status across all its eight properties.
The rating from the US Green Building Council signifies the eco-friendly nature of the way the buildings are constructed and run as hotels.
Rick Fedrizzi, CEO of the US Green Building Council, said achieving the LEED Platinum rating “demonstrates tremendous green building leadership”.
“The urgency of USGBC’s mission has challenged the industry to move faster and reach further than ever before,” he said, “and the certified ITC Hotels serve as a prime example with just how much we can accomplish.”
Nakul Anand, ITC’s executive director, said the “coveted feat” of being the “first hotel chain in the world to have all its premium luxury hotels accorded the highest rating” exemplifies the hotel group’s “credo of responsible luxury”.
ITC’s hotels include the ITC Maurya in New Delhi, the ITC Maratha in Mumbai and the ITC Gardenia in Bengaluru.
