Tata International, part of the Tata Group, has announced its plan of launching Green Retailing stores across India. The stores will consume 40 per cent less energy and will generate 15-20 per cent power from solar energy.
The stores are going to be one-of-the-kinds, designed on LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification of USGBC.
The designing and conceptualization of the stores will be done by JGA, a Detroit-based retail design firm along with FRDC (Future Research Design Company), Bangalore.
The green team which consists of architects and associate team from FRDC Bangalore and Delhi will monitor all the process and fabrication work of the stores.
