Green Factories?


The Green Building Index (GBI) is the nation’s sole green building benchmarking entity. Recently, GBI launched its latest rating tools, the Industrial New Construction (INC) and Industrial Existing Building (IEB) for the roaring industrial sector.

Creating green factories would be a huge leap in the right direction for the country as the industrial sector consumes almost 50% of the nation’s electricity production. The new tools feature categories like Site Planning and Management to Energy Efficiency, but scoring criteria for existing buildings may differ from new ones. This time round, our focus turns to the INC. Finally, we can now see what it takes to create green factories.
