The drive to contribute something precious to art and culture made the art collector in Rtn. Manoj Israni donate Rs 75 lakh towards an LEED platinum certification for Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya and its façade lighting.
Taking into consideration the climate change, the museum hopes to preserve the art collection against perpetual climate change by adopting a green museum of which the Environment Certification is a big step.
It gives us great pleasure to let you know that the Rotary Club of Bombay has succeeded in meeting the target date of December 31st, 2019 to attain the "Platinum" rating for CSMVS, as the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) conveyed its approval and recognition to CSMVS on December 30th.
It makes us all very proud that we have achieved the recognition in the very first attempt. The recognition inspires us to attain new heights in the field of environment management in the years ahead.
T R Doongaji, Trustee, CSMVS, has conveyed his sincerest gratitude to RCB for the financial and moral support extended by the Club for the implementation of the Green Building Certification Project.

LEED certification is sought by museums undergoing renovation or new construction, for the environmental benefits derived from achieving it as well as the cachet it lends. The illumination of the façade and lawns will highlight the beautiful building in an energy-friendly way for the visitors. RCB is helping enhance the heritage structure and the museum is to be illuminated from sunset to midnight.
