Global warming is the primary cause of current sea level rise. 7 out of 10 countries which will be most strongly impacted by the rising sea level are in Asia Pacific region. India tops this chart, with nearly 40 million Indians at risk from rising sea levels. People in the coastal cities of Mumbai and Kolkata will be most acutely affected by the increased sea level according to a UN environment report.
Data like this has motivated Lalco Residency to Go Green in all they do. Choosing to do things in the most environment friendly manner, might incur some additional expenses, but the management of Lalco Residency is committed in its endeavor to help curtail the damage done to the environment.

Also the waste is monitored for recyclable material and everything that’s recyclable is processed accordingly.
Greenery: Trees are the lungs of our environment. More trees lead to better air quality and better health. Keeping this in mind, at Lalco Residency there are gardens all around their premises. This greenery is not only soothing to the eyes, but also helps keep the ‘Mumbai Air’ much cleaner and healthier.

At Lalco Residency all efforts are taken to keep the usage of plastic to a minimum. Guests are also encouraged to keep their plastic usage to a minimum. In fact the water provided to guests in each room is in form of a 20 liter Bisleri container, so as to limit the usage of plastic in form of smaller disposable bottles.
Paper Usage: Each year 4 billion trees are cut down to make paper! That’s not all; paper making industries around world each year release millions of pounds of highly toxic chemicals into the air and water. At Lalco Residency the consumption of paper is kept to a bare minimum. As far as possible, technologies that allow paper free working are used.
Electricity Consumption: Electricity supplied to Mumbai, is mostly generated from fossil fuel. This translates into huge carbon footprint. At Lalco Residency keeping in line with the ‘Go Green’ adage, every effort is taken by the management to keep thee electricity consumption to a minimum. In fact key management system is installed in every single guest room, so as to ensure that electricity is turned off automatically when guests are not in their apartment.
Environment Friendly Cars: 1 in every 8th death on Earth can be linked to Air Pollution! Cars are one of the major contributors to this growing pollution. At Lalco Residency the most environmentally friendly cars are used for guests as well as in house usage to keep the air pollution to a minimum.
Food Wastage: Roughly 1/3rd of the food produced in the world for human consumption is either lost or wasted. Even if just one-fourth of the food currently lost or wasted globally could be saved, it would be enough to feed 870 million hungry people in the world. At Lalco Residency food is treated with utmost respect. Food is ordered as fresh as possible to both provide the guests with the best quality and limit the wastage of food.
