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. Playing a catalytic role in spearheading the green building movement in the Country is IGBC, part of CII.
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.
Today, over 7.75 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.
IGBC aspires to facilitate 10 Billion sq. ft of registered green building footprint by 2022 (75th year of Independent India).
To further advance green building movement in the country, IGBC is organising its 19th edition of Green Building Congress during 18, 19 & 20 November 2021 virtually on CII HIVE Digital Events Platform, India. Green Building Congress 2021 is been conceptualised differently to pave way for new opportunities for the building sector, in view of the ongoing pandemic and the challenges ahead.
