DIMO received a merit award, under the vehicle servicing category for their flagship location DIMO 800, Mercedes-Benz Centre of Excellence for the environmental efforts demonstrated in DIMO 800.
DIMO was the only company from the Automobile sector to receive an award at the National Green Awards 2017.
National Green Awards organized by the Central Environmental Authority acknowledges and appreciates the organizations, institutes and individuals that have made unique contribution to the field of environmental conservation.
Right from the onset, the management of DIMO unanimously decided to pursue a green building concept for the Center that would minimize their impact on the environment.
This decision was made in line with the company’s sustainability thinking which is to “create stakeholder value while reducing the footprint throughout its entire value chain”.
Therefore the Center has been designed with an emphasis on minimizing impact during construction while maximizing energy and water efficiency during the building’s operational lifetime.
It employs the latest green technology such as a highly energy efficient chiller system together with high-efficiency HVAC equipment, LED lighting, a sophisticated centralized building management system, solar-heat-gain-reducing glass, passive shading devices, rain water harvesting, a water treatment plant, water-efficient fixtures, a drip irrigation system to minimize treated water use for landscape irrigation, as well as many more green features.
Together these features have enabled DIMO 800 Mercedes-Benz Centre of Excellence to receive USGBC LEED Gold Certification.
