DIMO 800 receives merit award

DIMO received presidential recognition at the National Green Awards organized by Central Environment Authority recently. The company received a merit award, under the vehicle servicing category for their flagship showroom DIMO 800 Mercedes-Benz Centre of Excellence for the environmental efforts demonstrated. DIMO was the only company from the Automobile sector to receive an award at the ceremony.

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 Centre that would minimize the 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”. So, the Centre was 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 other green features.

Together these features have enabled DIMO 800 Mercedes-Benz Centre of Excellence to receive USGBC LEED Gold Certification.

This building is a testament to DIMO’s commitment to the upholding of its integrity and commitment to service excellence while minimizing its environmental impact at all times, the company said in a press release.
