Green building: case study

Urban expansion in India is enormous and will place great pressures on natural resources, especially water and the atmosphere.

 There are significant opportunities to reduce these pressures and contribute to human development through green building.

 The regulatory framework for green building, with the adoption of Part 5 of the National Building Code, complemented by voluntary codes and green building rating systems, will provide adequate guidance for the expansion of green buildings in the short-term.

 Standards for resource-efficient building materials need to be developed.

 The capacity to design and construct green buildings needs to be strengthened.

 More information about the actual costs and benefits of green buildings needs to be disseminated.
