MYK Laticrete: contributing to green buildings in India

MYK Laticrete India had been advocating and promoting their product range to ensure “breathe easy” for all end users of their products
All of us today are exposed to many difficult and harsh environments during our daily course of professional work, travel and even in leisure. It is important to for all of us to breathe easy and maintain good health during most part of day. The green revolution initiated by Indian Green Building Council in India aims at making this objective easy and available to all of us by educating all stake holders in the building industry and had been making valiant efforts to achieve this objective.
One important aspect of this initiative is promoting green products which do not harm the health of occupants of the buildings hence making them safe to live in and breathe easy. The rating system of green buildings is based on the degree of good health that we all can enjoy.
Besides, the future generations who have the right to live healthy are also ensured of good health and long happy lives with the green initiative and revolution in India.
As part of this green movement, MYK Laticrete India had been advocating and promoting their product range to ensure “breathe easy” for all end users of their products. The products, not only can save natural resources like water (used for curing purposes in cement based structures) but also ensure the good health of the occupants of the structure. Given below are some important contributions from MYK Laticrete India.
