India is third in green building ranking

India has secured 3rd position in the US Green Building Council (USGBC) annual ranking of the top 10 countries for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) 2016, a green building rating system. Buildings account for an estimated one-third of global emissions; a green certification provides cost-effective solutions to climate change as such structures generate significant environmental, economic and societal benefits.


  • LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a certification program focused primarily on new, commercial building projects and based upon a points system. The more points you earn, the higher your rating.
  • LEED-certified buildings save energy and water, helping residents and businesses make savings.
  • The LEED rating system offers four certification levels for new construction — Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum — that correspond to the number of credits accrued in five green design categories: sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources and indoor environmental quality.

By emphasising on LEED & green building construction, India is prioritising environmental and human health. This will help us get one step closer to a green building for all existing & coming generations.
