"A green revolution is on its way, thanks to rising energy consciousness, new standards and improved technology,” writes The Construction Times of India in a December 2018 article, "Green Is the Smart Color for the Construction Industry." The magazine takes a close look at the solutions that are helping to drive India’s green building market, which is estimated to double by 2022 to as much as $50 billion, reaching a potential $1.4 trillion by 2030.
In addition to the well-established LEED, EDGE green building certification is gaining traction in the residential space because of its software application, streamlined certification process and overall brand value in association with the World Bank Group’s name.
Once there is evidence of the performance of green buildings in hand, an abundance of government and banking incentives, and growth in consumer demand, then the next generation of buildings will reach its true potential. With the support of GBCI, the exclusive provider of EDGE certification services in India, and early adopters who are capitalizing on their commitments to sustainability, EDGE can help to make this happen.
