Kempegowda International Airport Is India’s First to Receive GreenCo Platinum Rating

Kempegowda Airport Bengalruru Terminal 1 2

Kempegowda International Airport, India’s first greenfield airport built through a private-public partnership, has been given a GreenCo Platinum rating by the Confederation of Indian Industry’s Green Business Centre.

“‘BIAL has constantly endeavored to create an enabling environment through its green initiative,’ said Hari Marar, president, airport operations, Bengaluru International Airport Limited (BIAL). ‘We see this rating from CII’s Green Building Council as a testimony toward our efforts in building an energy efficient and green airport.’”

“The award was evaluated on criterion like implementation of water-saving projects, energy efficiency, utilization of renewable energy, greenhouse gas emission, waste management, optimizing the three Rs of reduce, reuse and recycle, and green supply chain, among others.”

HOK provided design and planning services for the Kempegowda International Airport’s Bengaluru Terminal 1 Expansion. It is India’s first airport to receive a GreenCo Platinum rating and previously earned LEED Gold certification from the Indian Green Building Council.
