Recent news informs us that Puma is planning on opening its first green store in Bangalore, India, at some point not very far in the future.
Apparently, the company plans of installing PV on the store's roof in order to provide it with the energy it needs in order to keep business up and running, and an air tunnel will be used for cooling, thus cutting down on the need to use air conditioning units.
Moreover, the bags in which people will get to take home their newly purchased footwear are also environmentally-friendly, meaning that they are to be made from carton.
Last, but not least, the store has been designed in such a manner that it makes the most out of whatever daylight is available, something which will translate into a highly efficient use of energy.
Speaking on behalf of the company, Rajiv Mehta, Managing Director, made a case of how, “This is Puma’s first such store in the world. We are starting the project with India and depending on its success, will replicate it in other countries.”
