The recognition has made IGIA's T3 as the first "Platinum" rated green airport terminal building in India under "Green Existing Building O&M Rating System" by IGBC.
The announcement was made during the 14th Green Building Congress, 2016 organised by IGBC in Mumbai.
"The IGBC rating is one of the best known green building rating systems in India," said I Prabhakara Rao, Chief Executive Officer, DIAL.
Last month, IGIA was accorded carbon neutral status by Airports Council International (ACI). IGIA had then become the first airport in the Asia-Pacific region to achieve carbon neutral status.
IGIA's T3 was also the first LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) "Gold" certified terminal building in India under "New Construction" category.
