IGBC reported India registered 3 billion sq ft green building footprint

May 22, 2015 15:30 IST

Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) on 21 May 2015 reported that India has registered green building projects of over three billion sq ft area. The achievement has put India at the second position in the world green building footprint.  IGBC aims to rope in 10 billion sq ft by 2022.

IGBC is a part of the industry body Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), which is involved in promoting the green building movement in India.

The reason for this significant progress is the fact that stakeholders are realising that green buildings make good business sense. This key proposition is encouraging them to go the green buildings way.

A green building is one which uses less water, optimises energy efficiency, conserves natural resources, generates less waste and provides healthier spaces for occupants, as compared to a conventional building.

The residential building sector is one of the largest consumers of electricity in India. Continuous urbanisation and the growth of population result in increasing power consumption in buildings.
