Mahindra Lifespaces (MLDL) and TERI have jointly established a Centre of Excellence (MTCoE) which aims to develop science-based solutions for India's future built environment, with a view to reduce the energy footprint of the real estate industry. The overall scope of the project includes standardization and measurement of building material, thermal and visual comfort study, development of performance standard matrices, guidelines and numerical toolkits and water related activity for sustainable water use in habitats.

The activities related for the sustainable use of water include both macro and micro level analysis in terms of water efficiency, conservation and management within a premise by end users. Consequently, a study to assess the water sustainability in the cities of Chennai, Gurugram and Pune were carried out. The study identifies potential risks associated withwater sources, governance, infrastructure and demand & supply at city level and provide recommendations to combat those risks.

MLDL and Sustainable Habitat Program, TERI are jointly releasing a study on 'Water Sustainability Assessment of Pune'. The report would be launched on 16th October (Friday), 1500Hrs - 1700Hrs. On the occasion, we are conducting a webinar to share the findings of the study, emphasizing the need for sensitizing the end users on water conservation and its management. The event will bring together stakeholders from various domains, to discuss the challenges and opportunities on water sustainability in Pune. We look forward to your participation in this event.
