All eight ITC luxury hotels in India have been awarded LEED Platinum (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. This, says ITC, makes it the greenest luxury hotel chain in the world. The chain markets itself with a credo of Responsible Luxury that integrates world-class green best practices with contemporary design elements to deliver the best of luxury in the greenest possible manner … to be planet positive.
Platinum is the top LEED rating, requiring the highest standards of energy, water and waste efficiency. Seven of the ITC hotels were certified by the U.S. Green Building Council; the eighth was certified by the Indian Green Building Council.
