IGBC Green Schools

IGBC set up the Green Schools Core Committee to develop a rating program to address school children from Kindergarten to Higher secondary (KG to + 2). The committee comprises of key stakeholders, including educationists, principals, school managements, industry representatives and architects. The committee, with a diverse background and knowledge has enriched the rating system, both in its content and process.

The School rating system is unique in the sense that it addresses eco-education, Health & hygiene besides the infrastructural facilities, energy efficiency, water conservation and waste management. Aspects like nutrition, physical activity & safety are also addressed.

Any project can apply for IGBC Green Schools Rating System certification, if it meets all the mandatory requirements and achieve the minimum required credit points. Different levels of green building certification are awarded based on the total credits earned. The guidelines detailed would also help in the implementation and monitoring of eco-friendly measures.

All the schools going for IGBC Green Schools Certification should adhere to the local building laws and stipulations.
