Green Buildings are structures that ensure efficient use of natural resources like building materials, water, energy and other resources with minimal generation of non-degradable waste.
INDIAN GREEN BUILDING COUNCIL (IGBC)
The Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) is the rating system developed for certifying Green Buildings. LEED is a framework for assessing building performance against set criteria and standard points of references developed in the year 2000.
The Indian Green Building Council is part of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and was formed in 2001. The vision of the council is to enable a sustainable built environment for all and facilitate India to be one of the global leaders in the sustainable built environment by 2025.
