India ranks 3rd in the world for LEED Green Building

New Delhi, Feb 14 (UNI) India ranks third in the US Green Building Council (USGBC), the creators of the LEED green building rating system, announced the annual top 10 countries and regions for LEED outside of the US
The list recognises markets that are using LEED to create healthier spaces for people, as well as use less energy and water, reduce carbon emissions and save money for families and businesses.
According to the statement, India ranked third with more than 899 LEED-certified projects totaling more than 24.81 million gross square meters of space.
“For the last 25 years, LEED has played a key role in sustainability efforts around the world,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, President and CEO, USGBC and Green Business Certification Inc (GBCI), the global certifying body for LEED projects.
“The top 10 countries and regions represent a global community of dedicated USGBC member companies and green building professionals who are committed to improving our quality of life. A better future requires a universal living standard that leaves no one behind—and that future would simply not be possible without the extraordinary work being done in these countries.”
