Mahindra Teri

Delhi, March 22, 2022: The guidebook from Mahindra-TERI Centre of Excellence (CoE), a joint research initiative of Mahindra Lifespaces® and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), highlights the crucial measures that can be adopted by the existing and upcoming residential townships in India to achieve water use optimization and efficiency.


Speaking during the launch of the guidebook at a virtual event, Sanjay Seth, Senior Director, TERI said, “Issues such as inadequate water supply, depleting groundwater table, growing water demand and its misuse in townships has become an area of concern over the years and has posed a challenge to building professionals and urban local bodies.”


Viral Oza, Chief Marketing Officer, Mahindra Lifespaces, said, “As a pioneer of green homes across India, we are committed to a collaborative and research-driven approach towards sustainable lifestyles and practices. In keeping with the World Water Day, we are launching a guidebook, developed with the same research-driven approach, to spread awareness about the best practices for water conservation and its efficient management in residential townships.”

The reference guide has developed a three-point approach framework which covers all the actions required in design and retrofits, operation and maintenance and user behavioral changes to develop a multifunctional and resilient water system for a facility. It stresses on three pointers – reducing water usage, harnessing alternative water sources and integrating green infrastructure – to achieve water efficiency in a residential township.
