An Interplay Of Sustainable Built Environment Policies And Incentives In India

Prashant Kumar Tiwari, Dr. Jagadeesh Chandra T.G..


“Sustainable development in built environment is an often-overlooked perspective. Rapid urbanisation and industrialisation are largely to blame for the continuous environmental degradation. Due to the presence of clear barriers, industrial growth has already been purposefully limited. But supporting the green movement cannot be done at the expense of entirely suppressing urbanisation, and vice versa. Among the numerous steps the Indian government has made to improve energy efficiency and the sustainability of the built environment, the objective to engage important market actors and legislative incentives has begun to have an impact. Since the advent of GRIHA (Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment), IGBC (Indian Green Building Council), and BEE (Bureau of Energy Efficiency), the main actors have disagreed over the best ratings, creating a confusing view due to the numerous regulatory indexes and boundaries. Because various governments’ regulations, rankings, and other methods for preserving the built environment’s energy efficiency are incompatible, there is a considerable margin of error. The participation of sufficiently powerful local organisations becomes crucial for the successful execution of these programmes. This cannot be done without first considering how current legal and regulatory frameworks impact energy use and the effectiveness of well-built surroundings, including both residential and commercial buildings. A crucial factor is being played by the economic incentives offered to different market players and stakeholders who participate in the transaction of sale and purchase. An overlook by statutory authorities and a uniform mechanism will strengthen the structure and rating framework.”
