Conference on greening commercial establishments stresses on adopting green buildings in Kolkata

Kolkata, Feb 23 (UNI) A conference on greening the commercial
establishments was organised by the Indian Green Building Council in
association with West Bengal
HIDCO with an objective to encourage the commercial developments to
adopt green building practices in their new and existing facilities.
The conference held here on Thursday evening was primarily for the
land allottees of New Town Kolkata Development Authority (NKDA) so
that the upcoming projects
could go green from design stage while the existing projects could be
converted by means of suitable retrofits.
IGBC chairman Sushil Mohta said Bengal emerged amongst top five
states in India in terms of highest registered green Building
footprints after the
government notified green building incentives for Kolkata Municipal
Corporation (KMC), other municipal areas as well as New Town Kolkata
Development Authority (NKDA). The majority of projects in Kolkata
adopting planning and execution of projects as per green building
norms and embracing green building certification are from the
residential sector which is showcasing tremendous growth.
As per environment norm, large scale activities including bigger
buildings with more than 20,000 sq meter, must obtain environmental
clearance, he said.
" It is sensible for the developers to avail green building
certification. Large corporates like ITC, Wipro, State bank, Bandhan
Bank etc have decided that going forward all the building
developments will be as per Green Building Norms. I feel more
corporates and institutes shall come forward for same," Motha opined.
He informed that IGBC efforts have resulted in India achieving 11.203
billion sq. ft. of registered green footprints from more than 12,000
projects across India. Kolkata stands amongst the top five cities with
a contribution of over 1000 projects going green under various
building typologies.
