IGBC Green Healthcare Facilities Rating System


The healthcare sector in India is growing at a rapid pace and contributing immensely to the growth of the quality of services. The sector is expected to grow several-fold in the next decade.
While this augurs well for the country, there is an imminent need to introduce green concepts and techniques in this sector, which can aid growth in a sustainable manner.

Introducing green concepts in the healthcare facilities can help address National issues like infection, epidemics, handling of bio-medical waste, water efficiency, energy efficiency, reduction in fossil fuel use for commuting, consumer waste and in general conservation of natural resources. Most importantly, these concepts can enhance patients' health, recovery and well-being.

Against this background, the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) has launched 'IGBC Green Healthcare rating systemŽ to address National priorities. This rating programme is a tool which enables the designer to apply green concepts and reduce environmental impacts that are measurable.

The rating system addresses the following aspects:

  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Sanitisation & Hygiene
  • Water Conservation
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Building Materials and Resources
  • Site Selection & Planning


IGBC Green Healthcare Facilities Rating System is designed for Sub-centre, Primary Health Centre, Community Health Centre, District Hospital, Clinics, Private Hospitals and Medical Institutions.
