IGBC Green Factory Buildings
Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) Green Factory Buildings is the first rating programme developed in India, exclusively for the industrial sector. It is based on accepted energy and environmental principles and strikes a balance between known established practices and emerging concepts. The system is designed to be comprehensive in scope, yet simple in operation. This rating system would address the factory buildings and not the processes. It would be applicable to all sectors of industry and for all climatic zones of India.
IGBC Green Factory Building Rating System is a voluntary and consensus based programme. The rating system has been developed based on materials and technologies that are currently available. This rating system would facilitate the development of energy efficient, water efficient, healthy, more productive, environmentally friendly factories.
The rating system evaluates certain credit points using a prescriptive approach and other credits on a performance based approach. The rating system is evolved so as to be comprehensive and at the same time user-friendly. The programme is fundamentally designed to address national priorities and quality of life for factory workmen.
The rating programme uses well accepted national standards and wherever local or national standards are not available, appropriate international benchmarks have been considered.
