Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) Green Factory Buildings is a rating program instituted for industries within India. It’s a voluntary program and is rated based on certain categories that contribute to the overall savings in terms of energy and conservation.
The expected energy savings is between 30-40% and the expected water savings is between 20-30%. In this infographic, we’ll look at the different categories under which the IGBC rating system is based on and how each of them is warranted towards a specific purpose.
|Site Selection & Panning||To ensure that the building is in line with regulatory standards||
|Water Conservation||To ensure that water within the area is conserved as much as possible||
|Energy Conservation||Avoid use of CFC refrigerants and ozone depleting gases||
