The 10th edition of GRIHA Summit, scheduled to begin from December 11 to 13 in New Delhi, will focus on ‘Fostering Partnership for Sustainable Habitat’. The summit is poised to congregate experts and industry representatives to deliberate on the interdependence between organisations, systemic sustainability management, and feedback loops for better resource efficiency.
“The Summit will be an excellent venue for not only understanding the market opportunity for green buildings but also developing strategies and forging alliances,” says Sanjay Seth, CEO, GRIHA Council.
“More recently our parent body TERI and Mahindra Lifespace Developers Ltd (MLDL) launched the first-ever Centre of Excellence (CoE) to boost energy-efficient real estate in India. The CoE, which is a joint research initiative, will develop databases for market-ready, scalable and energy-efficient materials and technologies. At present we are populating the database, and shortly we will put the research output in the public domain so that it is adopted by developers, architects and individual homeowners,” he adds.
