Green building trends in India: 2017

Published on 28 Feb 2017 Written by Taryn Holowka Posted in Industry

On a global scale, green building construction is doubling every three years, according to the World Green Building Trends 2016 report, by Dodge Data and Analytics. Some of the leading drivers of this growth are client demand, environmental regulation and an enhanced awareness of the occupant and tenant benefits of green buildings.

Over the last several years, green building has also seen a dramatic increase in India. USGBC, the developers of the LEED green building program, are committed to advancing even more rapid adoption of green building practices in India. In fact, green building is projected to grow 20 percent in the country by 2018.

India already ranks third among the Top Ten Countries for LEED, and in 2016, nearly 650 projects in India earned LEED certification. Emerging economies such as India are engines of green growth, with development varying from two- to sixfold over current green building levels.

According to a recent USGBC survey, 87 percent of Indian green building professionals anticipate the use of LEED in India increasing overall, with nine out of ten industry senior executives in India anticipating that their LEED-related work will increase over the next several years.

We are very focused on encouraging and growing the green movement in the country and have been preparing for some time:

GBCI India

In 2015 we launched GBCI India, which is a local GBCI hub in New Delhi that is designed to help LEED teams and others in the sustainability industry with on-the-ground customer service and technical support as well as a local connection.
