Green Building Defined

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

IGBC Rating Systems

Green building rating brings together a host of sustainable practices and solutions to reduce the environmental impacts. Green building design provides an integrated approach considering life cycle impacts of the resources used.

An important development in the growth of green building movement in India is the launch of the following IGBC Green Building Rating Systems:

All the IGBC rating systems are voluntary, consensus based, market-driven building programmes.
The rating systems are based on the five elements of the nature (Panchabhutas) and are a perfect blend of ancient architectural practices and modern technological innovations. The ratings systems are applicable to all five climatic zones of the country. IGBC rating programmes have become National by Choice and Global in Performance.
