All about green buildings

An advanced training programme on Indian Green Building Council’s Green Building Rating System will be held in Goa on February 13 and 14, said a note from the Confederation of Indian Industry.

The workshop will provide exposure to green building design strategies and green building case studies. The programme will cover the Indian experience in green buildings and deal with regional priorities and approaches for “innovative sustainable design strategies.”

The CII-Indian Green Building Council’s LEED India Green Building Rating system, launched in January 2007, has acquired prominence and the rating system has successfully been applied in India in 2,010 buildings with a total area of 1.39 billion square foot.

There is a growing demand for green buildings and corporates are taking initiatives in this direction. Under these circumstances there is a need to educate building professionals on the Green Building Rating System, the brochure for the workshop said. More details at www.igbc.in
