Project Description
The program is designed as a multi-city and multi-stakeholder approach and collaboration with IFC's development partners under a single, comprehensive program. The project principally targets the multi-family housing sector in several Indian cities. Other building sectors, such as hotels, retail and hospitals will be targeted in some cities, depending on market conditions and government priorities. This Program is focused on increasing the uptake of green building finance and acceptance of voluntary green building standards in at least five cities, with the goal to achieve a significant penetration of green buildings in new construction. The program is aligned with Govt of India's priorities on energy efficiency and national determined contributions (NDCs).
People Affected By This Project
The main objective of this project is to promote sustainable urbanization through green buildings in India. The program targets to promote adherence to green building standards resulting in high levels of penetration in new build - specifically, new commercial buildings and multi-family residential units in target cities within 7 years of project commencement.
