Conference on Green Apartments

The housing sector in India is growing at a rapid pace and contributing immensely to the growth of the economy. This augurs well for the country and now there is an imminent need to introduce green concepts and techniques in this sector, which can aid growth in a sustainable manner. 

The Census of India has estimated that by 2026, urban population would rise to around 535 million or 38.2 percent of the total population. This means an addition of 250 million persons or near doubling of urban population in about two decades from now with reference to 2001 (285 million). (Source: Ministry of Urban development)

By 2030, the country is expected to have 68 cities with a population of more than one million, 13 cities with more than 4 million people and 6 megacities with populations of 10 million or more, with Mumbai and Delhi among the biggest cities worldwide. (Source: Ministry of Urban development)

Today, the living standards of people are changing, affordability of people is improving, and therefore adequate housing & infrastructure are at most important for Nation. We have a challenge in both demand & supply. The only solution to this is sustainable habitats.

The need of the hour is to promote green habitats  which facilitate in addressing national issues including water efficiency, energy efficiency, reduction in fossil fuel used in commuting, handling of consumer waste, conserving natural resources and ensuring occupant health, happiness and well-being.

In this regard, IGBC is organising exclusive two day conference on Green Apartments on 12 & 13 July 2013 at Shangri - La, New Delhi. This conference encourages passionate members in reaching the green agenda to the residential community. Leading national and international experts will share their thoughts and perspectives on how to foster and promote sustainable habitats to the present & future generations.
