Geojit BNP Paribas reap benefits from its new Green HO



In a short time since its inauguration, Geojit BNP Paribas’ new ‘Green’ Head office at

Padivattom has proved to be of great benefit to the environment and cost saver for the

company. Now fully functional and accommodating nearly 600 staff, the building with a

built up area of 1,04,609 sq ft consumes 25% less energy and over 40% less water than

conventional buildings.

Speaking about the benefits of its new Office, the company’s Managing Director, C. J.

George said, “We put our trust in the green building concept and invested over Rs 40

Crore in our building. Today, at a time when we are facing energy and water crisis, I can

confidently say that Geojit is doing our bit to conserve the world’s precious resources.”

He added, “I believe that going Green is the way forward for all and I wish more

companies will follow our example and invest in green buildings to conserve our

environment.”

The Head Office of Geojit BNP Paribas is built to match the exacting standards set by

Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) and it aims to be the first LEED 'Gold' building in

Kochi City. The building can accommodate 850 staff and has 18 meeting rooms plus 3

training rooms with a total seating capacity for 130 people, parking facility for 57 cars and

200 two wheelers.

The landmark building is constructed keeping in mind the environmental health,

sustainability and the comfort of the occupants. It focuses on efficient energy

management, low water consumption and will generate less waste materials, thus creating

a space for a healthy environment.
