Today, building sector is in the forefront of adopting and promoting green practices and technologies. This is going a long way in addressing ecological issues in a holistic manner. Stakeholders are warmly embracing sustainable building practices. There is a growing evidence that green buildings not only conserve resources but will also enhance the quality of life of the occupants.
The spotlight is therefore shifting to people and their wellness. Indian Green Building Council is working with several stakeholders such as state & central governments, NGOs, bilateral, multilateral agencies including WorldGBC in this mission.
Playing a catalytic role in spearheading the green building movement in the Country is IGBC, part of CII. Today, over 8 Billion sq.ft of green spaces in India are going the IGBC way. This has facilitated India become one of the top 3 Countries in the world in terms of largest registered green building footprint.
To further advance green building movement in the country, IGBC is organising its 20th edition of ‘Green Building Congress’ from 20 - 22 October 2022 at HICC Hyderabad, India.
