“Powering a Greener Tomorrow”. Currently buildings are consuming around 40% of energy and India has committed that India will be having carbon neutrality by 2070 and it will be in all building sectors buildings play a very important role as they consume more amount of energy and that is why green buildings are going to contribute a lot in 2070 goal. We have various types of green building rating systems such as IGBC, LEED, GRIHA etc.
The IGBC provides guidelines and criteria for the design, construction and operation of green buildings in India. IGBC is one of the leading green building energy certification. IGBC has their headquarters in Hyderabad and they are having lots of projects in south, north and central India.
According to research, maximum green buildings are in Mumbai and Pune. Pune is one of the pioneers in IGBC rating system and that is why it is proposed to have a regional office and training Centre in Pune and as it is green certifying agency, it has to show greenness through its design.
