Green Building Services
Indian Green Building Council (IGBC), part of CII, with the support of the stakeholders is spearheading the green building movement in the country since 2001. Taking forward this initiative, IGBC began the journey of ushering in a green building movement in the country. To trigger this movement, IGBC decided to practice before it preaches. Building on this, IGBC established CII-Godrej GBC building in Hyderabad. This building became India’s first Platinum rated green building in the year 2004. This remarkable achievement in turn triggered the green building movement in the country. As a result of concerted efforts, today (as on March 2015) over 3,000 green building projects, amounting to over 2.67 Billion Sq.ft, are going the IGBC way- making India the second country in the world with largest green building footprint. These projects are spread across the five climatic zones of the country.
