The Green Building Concept is gaining major importance in India, considering the tremendous benefits that it offers. 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.
CII-Indian Green Building Council's (IGBC) Green Building rating systems launched since 2007 had made rapid strides in the Green Building sector. These Rating Systems have been successfully applied in India in as many as 4,573 buildings, till date with a footprint of 5,30 Billion sq.ft. Many Government, corporate, builders & developers in India have taken lead in constructing Green Buildings. With the growing demand for Green Buildings, there is a need to enhance the knowledge of building professionals on Green Building concepts & equip them on the Green Building rating Systems.
Against this backdrop, CII-Godrej IGBC is organizing a two-day IGBC Advanced Training Programme on Green Buildings on 26 & 27 July 2018, Chennai
