Pune: The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) is all set to launch a 'green rating' system for new constructions in the city.

 

PMC commissioner Kunal Kumar has incorporated the plan in the annual civic draft budget for 2015-16 fiscal. Delhi-based TERI has developed GRIHA (Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment), which was adopted as the national rating system for green buildings by the Government of India in 2007. The system has been developed to help 'design and evaluate' new buildings (buildings that are still at the inception stages). A building is assessed based on its predicted performance over its entire life cycle - inception through operation. It is a qualitative and quantitative assessment criteria to rate a building on the degree of its greenness. On a broader scale, this system, along with the activities and processes that lead up to it, is supposed to benefit the community at large with improvement in environment by reducing GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions, reducing energy consumption and the stress on natural resources. "The PMC plans to give concession in premium to developers if their building fits into the Green Rating criteria. We will start the implementation this year," said Kumar. The buildings also get incentives from the Ministry of new and renewable energy.
