|THE GREEN INITIATIVE
Amidst growing concerns over global warming and climatic change affecting the environment, there exists a serious and impending threat to the world’s ecosystem in the coming decades. With the emission of green house gases on a rise, and global temperatures set to rise at a rate of 2-3 degree celcius , the scenario is likely to seriously affect developing countries like India.
The environmental impact of a building design, construction and operation industry is significant considering the fact that it consumes a major portion of the generated energy in this country.
Keeping this in mind, K.Raheja Corp is one of the first real estate developer in the country who has chosen to be at the forefront of being environmentally responsible albeit volantarily and go GREEN. In what is considerd as a landmark agreement, the company has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) to facilitate certification of LEED rated GREEN Buildings for all future projects across India..
Benefits of Green Building
Green Buildings offer a range of economic and environmental benefits:
- 30% to 40% reduction in operation cos
- Green corporate image
- Health and safety of building occupants
- Enhance occupant comfort
- Improve productivity of occupants
- Imbibe best operational practices from day one
- Incorporate latest techniques and technologies
About LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)
The company has decided to have their projects as LEED [Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design ] certified GREEN BUILDINGS from the Indian Green Building Council. This concept of "Green Buildings"has originated in the United States nearly a decade and a half ago.
It essentially lays emphasis on usage of environmentally friendly building materials, effective waste management and efficient energy systems that can substantially reduce or eliminate negative environmental impacts and improve existing unsustainable design, construction and operational practices. For Eg usage of Double Glazing for external facades with the specified U value of Glass, Utilising alternative sources of energy(Solar Power), HFC refrigerants for Airconditioning and many more. This in turn would bring down the annual energy consumption of any building by 15-20%
