We have effectively incorporated several decarbonization measures by using environmentally friendly materials, energy-efficient solutions, and implementing sustainable construction practices.
Goel Ganga Developments - Gunjan Goel, Director
We are dedicated to helping the nation accomplish its target of net-zero emissions by the year 2070 by focusing on environmentally friendly and sustainable building practices that cut carbon emissions over a building’s entire lifespan. This entails using environmentally friendly supplies, adopting power-efficient concepts, and renewable energy sources in our constructions. We also encourage ecologically friendly modes of transportation.
Decarbonization and sustainability measures
With onsite waste segregation, reusing, and recycling of construction-related scrap, we can effectively turn waste into resources that are beneficial. By minimizing on-site building waste, using prefabrication and modular methods of construction we can minimize waste creation to a great extent.
A carbon credit policy focused on the construction sector would help mitigate carbon emissions. Construction firms can collaborate with other interested parties to create carbon footprint calculators that effectively quantify emissions while providing incentives for mitigation initiatives. This approach may additionally encourage use of clean energy and materials that are environmentally friendly, and reduce carbon emissions throughout the construction phase.
The creation of a centralised entity for overseeing and promoting innovations in the construction sector would also help in addressing the issues of dispersion and an absence of collective drive. Through education, instruction, and advocacy, the body would encourage awareness about decarbonization and sustainability. It may additionally provide financing and assistance for the study and development of emerging and environmentally friendly construction materials and technological advances.
The body can involve elected officials in creating and advocating for legislations that promote environmentally friendly construction practices to make buildings that are energy-efficient, and which use materials and technologies to lower their carbon footprints.
Challenges in transitioning to low-carbon construction methods
Increased price of eco-friendly materials, lack of knowledge on sustainable practices, and the requirement for specialised skills and training are some of the challenges that developers and contractors encounter while shifting to low-carbon construction methods.
Our company has effectively incorporated decarbonization measures such as using environmentally friendly materials, implementing energy-efficient concepts and adding sources of clean energy such as rooftop solar panels and wind turbines, reducing waste, and encouraging environmentally friendly transportation solutions.
