India: TERI Sets Targets for Large Buildings with GRIHA Label

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on November 5, 2013

The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), a policy research organisation, has created a tool to measure and evaluate a building's environmental performance. The tool was developed in the context of India's varied climate and building practices, called Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment (GRIHA). GRIHA quantifies parameters, such as energy consumption, waste generation and renewable energy adoption, over the entire lifecycle of the building. The GRIHA housing label was first introduced in 2010, with the aim of incentivising the construction of cleaner and more sustainable buildings. In April 2013, TERI announced that it will aim at making government and private buildings totalling 15 million m2 of floor space compliant with GRIHA within three years.
