VMware India recently sealed a deal with its builders to enable two of its largest buildings based in the city of Bangalore – Kalyani Vista and Kalyani Magnum – to receive 85% of renewable energy. Kalyani Vista will receive wind energy for close to 400,000 sq. ft while Kalyani Magnum will receive energy for nearly 200,000 sq.ft from wind power turbines located in the State of Karnataka.
With the achievement of Kalyani Vista’s LEED Platinum® certification along with the two buildings now being powered by renewable energy, VMware India aims at achieving high performance in sustainable site development, water conservation, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. By taking lead in developing a state-of-the art campus that has minimal impact on the environment, VMware India is also establishing sustainable work environments for its employees. The sustainable vision and roadmap presented through VMware 2020 which was also part of the Global Impact Report will help build an inclusive environment that aligns with the company’s commitments to reductions in global carbon emissions and 100% renewable energy for global operations by 2020.
