Indian Green Building Council
The Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) is part of the Confederation of Indian Industry and Godrej Green Business Centre (GBC). The council is actively involved in the promotion of green buildings in India. The IGBC is among those taking the lead to create a knowledge base and infrastructure to create green buildings. IGBC which endorses LEED is attempting to indigenise the rating system according to the environmental conditions prevalent in India. Together with the IGBC Green Homes rating, which is perhaps the first rating programme exclusively created for Indian homes, and other systems such as TERI GRIHA and Eco Housing, LEED offers developers and home owners the support they require to upgrade the performance of their residential complexes.
