We believe in identifying and addressing environmental concerns and taking corrective actions to contribute towards India’s net-zero commitments.

Promoting the advantages of low-carbon construction methods will encourage many resisting elements to unanimously adopt techniques that help reduce carbon emissions. If the benefits of low-carbon building solutions are promoted in a comprehensive manner by the industry leaders, it will spread awareness and lead to a gradual acceptance of such methods, thereby alleviating the concerns of construction contractors as well.
Reforming construction activities
As a real estate group, reformation in construction activities at building sites is one of the core agendas of our environmental-friendly strategy to reduce carbon footprints and their impact on the climate. Efficient waste management, use of eco-friendly raw materials, increasing recycling rates, and construction of sustainable buildings are key priorities of our company towards decarbonization of construction activities. We believe that this will help the real estate sector adopt new and eco-conscious business practices.
Waste management a significant aspect of decarbonization and sustainability
Waste management and recycling construction waste at project are a preliminary but crucial step towards decarbonization. Instead of discarding construction waste such as masonry, steel, and cement, and rendering it completely useless, the debris of a currently developing building site can be used at a new building site. It saves energy and financial resources and empowers the principles of waste management. Radiators, grates, piping, appliances, and fittings can also be reused in other building plans.
Carbon credits for emission reductions
The promulgation of a carbon credit policy will revolutionize the construction industry. It will set a specified limit on the amount of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases that a particular building site can emit. This will allow developers to plan construction activities in a sedulous manner and reduce carbon footprints as much as possible. In an overarching scheme of things, it will infuse a system of checks and balances in the construction business and ensure a greater authoritative intervention in case of lapses or lack of adherence to the policy. A carbon credit policy will boost the construction industry’s value chains and sufficiently create a positive impact at the grassroot level.
A centralized body will highlight importance of decarbonization
Collective incentives, interests, and innovations can be channelized and voiced through the institution of a centralized body in a democratic way. It will ensure that the government authorities and private actors/developers work in tandem to represent and attend to the concerns of the relevant industries, and also collaborate to find sustainable solutions through active coordination.
A centralized body will raise awareness about the importance of decarbonization, sustainable architecture, and green buildings in the broad spectrum and also promote technological innovations to weed out construction pollution.
