Green - Building Rating: Overrated


Green Rating of Buildings Taking Roots

The idea of green rating of buildings has taken roots in India.

This is in line with the global trend in which the rating tools set benchmarks for green measures for constructing and using buildings to make them sustainable and to reduce their negative impacts on environment. Based on the magnitude of green measures adopted, points are awarded to a building and, after appropriate weighting, a total score is ascribed to determine the rating of the building. This helps to convey the range of application of green measures in building construction.
