07 October 2019
Elta Fans Asia has joined the growing number of companies sporting the Green Building Council membership logo, joining the Malaysia and India Green Building Councils for 2019 and 2020.
Energy efficiency in the built environment has become a key focus in the industry and around the globe. As a result, there has been an increase in Green Building Council memberships since its inception in 1993, as more companies place focus on moving towards more sustainable practices.
The World Green Building Council oversees individual councils in 70 countries that are all committed to the same overarching goals. Eliminating the CO2 emissions from the building and construction industry, and working towards all buildings being net-zero buildings being on the top of their list.
Elta Fans Asia has now joined the cohort of companies joining the GBC and have committed to memberships for Green Building Councils in both India and Malaysia.
With the most energy efficient axial fans on the market, Elta Fans Asia has taken a big step towards providing high quality sustainable air movement products throughout the Asia regions.
“Aligning with like-minded industry associations such as the Green Building Council is another way we are showing our commitment to our goal of providing sustainable air movement products to the entire Asia region”, commented Elta Fans Asia CEO, Nick Heaton.
“We want to be part of the movement towards a more sustainable built environment and through the Green Building Council we can connect with other companies who share the same goal”.
The benefits of green buildings are widely acknowledged and the World Green Building Council website even goes as far as detailing the statistics behind their movement.
Green buildings certified by the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) results in energy savings of 40 – 50% and water savings of 20 – 30% compared to conventional buildings in India.
Green buildings achieving the Green Star certification in Australia have been shown to produce 62% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than average Australian buildings.
“It is results like these we are aiming for, and it’s the long-term commitment to these results that drives us to align with the Green Building Councils. We share the same values and are essentially moving towards the same end game; a sustainable future”, concluded Heaton.
