In line with its vision of creating a sustainable organization, the Capgemini campus in Bangalore becomes the first corporate campus in India to achieve the Net-Zero Energy -Platinum certification from Indian Green Building Council (IGBC).
The campus is designed to be climate responsive and incorporates a wide range of sustainable initiatives such as variable refrigerant flow systems and water cooled chillers for comfort air conditioning, a dual feeder electricity supply to reduce diesel generator operations and smart aisle containment for efficient cooling at its data center. To generate on-site renewable energy, a solar plant of 1100kwp with bidirectional energy meters was commissioned. The meters export unused green energy to the local grid during weekends and holidays. The organization has also entered into a long-term agreement for purchase of renewable power from offsite solar and wind farms to meet its energy requirements.
