Marks & Spencer South Extension, the retailer’s first high street sustainable learning store in India, has been awarded the highest rating of Platinum in the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building certification programme.
Opened in February 2012, the 20,000 sq ft store hosts a range of sustainable construction and design features to reduce energy usage and waste – as part of M&S' drive to become the world's most sustainable major retailer by 2015.
M&S South Extension is the first retail outlet in India to be awarded the prestigious Platinum rating by LEED, which is an internationally renowned benchmark for design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.
Venu Nair, Managing Director for Marks & Spencer Reliance India, said: “We’re really proud to be the first retailer in the country to be awarded the Platinum rating from LEED – marking an important milestone on our sustainability journey in India. Our South Extension store not only helps the environment but also provides us with valuable insight into sustainable building practices in India, which we’re using to support future projects in the country.”
