Welspun One Logistics Parks’ flagship Bhiwandi project has recently been named India’s first Platinum Pre-Certified Green Logistics Park by the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC), a part of CII. “We are committed to designing a high-performing logistics park in accordance with the IGBC Green Logistics Parks & Warehousing rating system,” says Anshul Singhal, Managing Director, Welspun One Logistics Parks. “Our under-construction park has been awarded this coveted certificate after a rigorous evaluation and approval process, making it a matter of great pride for us all. We appreciate CII-IGBC for the initiative taken and pledge to continue working towards our common goal of creating a long-term and meaningful impact.”Launched in July 2020 and currently under development, Welspun One’s logistics park at Bhiwandi is being designed as per global standards and Green Building Certification requirements. The project design promotes natural habitat and biodiversity onsite by providing over 12 per cent of green cover, including 2,770 trees. The park aims to achieve a 37 per cent reduction in water usage by installing rainwater harvesting and wastewater treatment systems while using low-flow fixtures. The company is also committed to ensuring that 96 per cent of the construction waste be diverted for reuse or recycling and about 68 per cent of the material used in the project is ecologically sound. Well-connected with bus stops, NH-3 and NH-4 and Mumbai Airport, the project is slated to aid the reduction in carbon footprint through vehicular traffic. In addition to the park, Welspun One is also working towards eco-friendly measures beyond the fence such as the installation of solar PV systems, streetlights, renovation of public toilets, and other such facilities for the social well-being of occupants in nearby communities and villages. Welspun One has been the first company in its category to register under the pilot programme and receive a pre-certification of the new rating system ‘IGBC Green Logistics Parks and Warehouses.’
