Suzlon believes in creating and maintaining a positive environment, both outside its office walls as well as on the inside. Suzlon One Earth is the embodiment of this belief. Situated in Pune, India, it is the eco-friendly, self-sufficient headquarters of the company. The campus is spread across 10 acres and is completely powered by renewable energy, including hybrid wind turbines, solar panels and photovoltaic cells.
Suzlon One Earth is a LEED Platinum and GRIHA 5 - star certified building and is one of the greenest corporate campuses in the world. It is divided into five interconnected, individual buildings that are aptly named after the elements of nature – Sun, Aqua, Sky, Tree and SEA.
Through sustainable practices like rainwater harvesting, on-site waste conversion and an ‘Office in Garden’ design to maximise daylight use, Suzlon One Earth successfully reduces its operating cost by 35%. This benefit is then passed on by the company to its customers through increased investment in technology.
