Green building projects in India growing 20-30% annually: USGBC

Kolkata, Oct 11 - Green building projects in India are growing at the rate of 20-30% on a year-on-year basis, a US Green Building Council (USGBC) official said.

"This trend provides a huge opportunity for all stakeholders, including us. Close to 500 new projects are registered in our certification process," USGBC's Regional Director (Asia Pacific and Middle East) Gopalakrishnan Padmanabhan said.

The council provides Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), a green building rating agency and its services to 165 countries across the world.

According to him, more than 1.17 billion square feet of real estate is registered under the LEED certification with approximately 2,500 projects in India.

He said India secured third position (outside the US) in 2017 in council's annual ranking of the top 10 countries for the rating. China leads the rankings, followed by Canada.

Globally, there are 90,000 certified commercial projects representing more than 19.1 billion square feet under the rating space.
