Delhi Metro Becomes The Only 100% Green System In The World, Wins A Platinum Rating
2017-Aug-01 | By News Admin

Delhi Metro has gone 'completely' green. In other words, it has become the only 100% green system in the world for adhering to green building norms for residential colonies. For this, it has been awarded a platinum rating by the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC). 


World's first ever green system
Delhi Metro has become the world's first such system to follow all green building norms for 10 of its residential colonies. This feather gets added to its already lustrous cap of achievements where, in the past, Delhi Metro won several green certificates for its Phase-3 stations, depots, and many substations.


Showering praises on Delhi Metro for its work on reducing carbon-footprints across its premises, Chairman of IGBC, Prem C. Jain said, "DMRC was the first one to become a green Metro. The platinum ratings they have got is very hard earned and a lot of toil has gone into the process."

The way forward
In association with Shri Ram School, Gurugram, DMRC is taking the 'Swachh Chetna - An Eco Club' forward with its efforts to "encourage school children to participate in the more environment-friendly projects and activities".
