The first and only school chain on Earth with LEED-EB Platinum rating

Pathways group of Schools has become the first and only chain of schools in the world to be conferred with the highest accolade for Environmentally-Responsible Design with the Platinum certification for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings (LEED-EB) by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). The USGBC is a prestigious non-profit organization that promotes sustainable building design and construction in the world through its leadership of the World Green Building Council. All three Pathways Schools (Aravali, Gurgaon & Noida) have now earned the LEED-EB Platinum rating.

 

The series of these prestigious achievements started back in 2014 with Pathways School Gurgaon being recognized as the Highest Rated Green Building (Educational) on the planet with its LEED-EB Platinum rating. This was followed by Pathways School Noida receiving the same certification in 2015 and now Pathways World School Aravali in 2016.

 

At a time when environmental protection is an increasingly pressing issue all over the world, LEED through its green building certification program recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices.

 

On receiving this certification Director of Pathways group of Schools, Mr Prashant Jain, said, “We at Pathways truly believe in an environmentally friendly world and have hence built all our schools as Green Buildings. Spending most of their active time in school these young children are sensitized to be one with nature. We take pride of being the first and only school chain in the world having all the campuses rated LEED Platinum by United States Green Building Council.”

 

Among all the educational facilities worldwide who have achieved this top distinction which includes another High School and a small number of Universities, Pathways Schools are the highest rated.
