Already two of the highest performing LEED certified buildings in the world, SRK House and SRK Empire have long been examples of the brand’s commitment to proactively reducing its carbon footprint.

And now, after teaming up with GNFZ, a net zero certification body founded by former U.S. Green Building Council President and CEO, Mahesh Ramanujam, SRK has accelerated the net zero certification of both buildings more than six years ahead of schedule. 

“In 2015, the world outlined its ambitious Paris Agreement targets. But these rigorous timelines and interim benchmarks are based on data our warming world has already outpaced. Our partnership with GNFZ presents an opportunity for us to lead by example, accelerate the decarbonization of the diamond sector, and share our best practices with colleagues pursuing net zero around the world,” said SRK Brand Custodian Shreyans Dholakia.
