Infosys Limited has been awarded the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) India 'Platinum' rating by Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) for its Software Development Block 5 (SDB 5) in Mysore, India. This is the third Infosys building that has won a Platinum rating, taking the total Platinum certified building area at Infosys to 780,000 sq ft. LEED-India Green Building Rating System is a nationally and internationally accepted benchmark for design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.

Completed in March, 2011, the building is located in the Infosys Limited Special Economic Zone, Mysore. SDB 5 has been built keeping in mind a holistic approach to sustainability in five key areas, including - Sustainable site development, Water savings, Energy efficiency, Materials selection and Indoor environmental quality.

Key features of this Platinum rated building include:

• Water Efficiency: There has been a 58% reduction in overall water consumption in the building through the use of efficient plumbing fixtures, plus only recycled water is used for irrigation.
• Energy Efficiency: The building is 40% more efficient than the globally accepted ASHRAE standard and has the potential to save about 800,000 kgs of carbon emissions. This has been achieved through an efficient building envelope, which includes insulated walls and roof, along with spectrally selective double glazed windows which are appropriately shaded. Adding to that is the use of efficient equipment and smart automation leading to a 40% reduction in energy costs.
• Lighting: 90% of this office space harvests natural light, reducing the need for artificial lighting during daytime. The design includes light shelves along all windows to ensure that the natural light travels as deep into the building as possible. This lighting design is 35% more efficient than ASHRAE standards. The contrasting brightness within the building has also been reduced by using light color surfaces and ceilings, thus reducing the strain on pupils, and as a result, employees are less tired.
• Green Power: 100% energy consumption of this building is met with green power.
• Efficient Material Selection and Management: For this project, Infosys has diverted construction waste from landfills. 10% of the total construction material used was recycled material including aluminum, glass and steel. 41% of the total project material by cost was manufactured regionally, thereby reducing pollution due to transportation.

Commenting on the certification, Mr. Ramadas Kamath, SVP - Administration, Infrastructure & Security at Infosys Limited said,"As we invest in our business and deliver value to our clients and employees, we are also focused on providing a sustainable environment for our employees and generations to come. We have achieved LEED Platinum certification for the SDB 5 in our Mysore campus based on an integrated green design and construction process. With each new LEED-certified building, we get one step closer to our vision of a sustainable future. We hope that our work in terms of innovative, forward-thinking construction projects becomes a model and catalyst for companies to pursue such projects in the future."
