Environment is at the heart of the scheme of things at BenchMark. Resting on the banks of the picturesque Tirur-Ponnani River, BenchMark can’t be otherwise. But it is not just the proximity to the water that drives our green-friendliness. We are sharply aware of the priority that environment should be accorded in an agenda of the present if we are to leave the future ready for the young ones.
