The Infosys Mysuru campus has been awarded the LEED EBOM (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – Existing Building Operation & Maintenance) Platinum certification by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). Infosys now has 18.25 million square feet of highest rated green buildings – out of which 16.9 million square feet are LEED Platinum rated and 1.35 million square feet are GRIHA 5-star rated buildings.
The LEED Green Building Rating System is a globally accepted benchmark for design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings. Infosys has the largest building area as LEED Platinum certified in the IT office space category. To make its campuses sustainable and resource efficient, Infosys has followed a two-pronged strategy since 2008 – to design new buildings to the highest energy efficiency standards and implement deep retrofits in old buildings.
At the Mysuru campus, efficiency improvements were achieved through large scale retrofit projects, in existing buildings including food courts, training center, guest houses and sports complex. Major interventions included the complete re-engineering of chiller plants, air handling units, building management system (BMS) retrofit, UPS retrofit, lighting retrofit, etc. These initiatives have helped Infosys lower operating costs, enhance equipment life, create healthier indoor air quality, and improve occupant comfort and satisfaction.
