:: Welcome to Indian Green Building Council ::


IGBC Coffee Table Book

IGBC is proud of its association with all IGBC green-rated projects spread across the country. The sustainability initiatives in these projects have guided the growth of IGBC and inspired wide spread adoption of green buildings by various stakeholders of the real estate community. This has facilitated India to emerge as a global leader on the world map of green buildings and green infrastructure. The achievements and green scorecard of all IGBC-rated projects deserve to be recognised at the national and international stage.

In this regard, IGBC had launched a coffee table book titled, "Green Buildings of India" in 2014. This book is a limited edition biennial publication and showcases unique green building projects which are spread across the country and have been rated by IGBC. Projects which are only pre-certified (i.e. the final certification is still pending) are not included in the book.

The book is prepared under the guidance of a committee chaired by Mr Sameer Sinha, Chairman, IGBC Ahmedabad chapter & Chairman, IGBC Coffee Table Book. The book primarily captures the following:

  • High resolution photographs of the salient features like passive architectural design, innovative use of recycled and salvaged materials, landscaping, etc.
  • Project team involved like owner, consultant, architect and others.
  • Tangible (energy and water savings) and intangible (health and comfort) benefits.
  • Experience of the occupants in living and working out of green buildings
  • Inspirational quotes from the various project stakeholders highlighting their commitment to sustainability.

The IGBC Coffee Table Book has turned out to be one of CII - IGBC's most successful and prestigious publication till date. One may find the book finding it's pride of place in the facilities and offices of India's best-known architects, developers, industrialists, hoteliers, airports and others. This publication is also made available for sale from the IGBC website. The result of all these initiatives was that the book transcended national boundaries and reached various parts of the globe. In the process, it spread the message of India's leadership status in the field of sustainability and green buildings.
