Redevelopment is extremely important for Indian cities today.
Sustainable real estate measures play a crucial role in transforming each city. Future looking developers have set targets for achieving carbon neutrality in their operations.
They have formulated and implemented changes that help cities tackle their old buildings. Successful pilot projects, which have provided opportunities to scale up feasible solutions and achieved significant emission reductions, are being replicated across new constructions. Some of these processes have been devised in alignment with the internationally recognized GHG (greenhouse gas) Protocol. The hope of leading better lives increases with the speed at which the real estate industry adapts to green technology.
Green buildings are the most effective approach to making the effects on environment less harmful. One of the most important starting points for this is identifying land parcels that are synergetic with nature and preserve green cover.
Over the years, real estate developers have committed to sustainable development. The government has also introduced several schemes to promote sustainability.
One such initiative is the Indian Renewable Energy Development
Agency (IREDA). The IREDA schemes are for subsidizing capital for encouragement of energy audits and management schemes, mandatory use of flyash-based construction material, groundwater and rainwater harvesting and most importantly increased monitoring of air and water pollution.
Low-flow fixtures in bathrooms significantly reduce water
consumption. Rainwater harvesting is another time – tested method. Realtime water consumption monitoring helps us to further optimize water usage. Transplanting trees into building
sites preserves green cover. It is wise to choose plants that have low water demand and provide additional water filtration says RISHAD KHERGAMWALA, Director — Developments, MAIA Estates.
According to UNICEF, by the year 2050, A redeveloped building ensures maximum natural light and ventilation so that occupants use lesser air conditioning.
Renovating our living spaces to align with ecofriendly
practices is not just a responsible choice; it is a way to honour our planet. By incorporating energy efficient systems, utilizing renewable materials, and adopting green technologies,
we can create homes that harmonize with nature. This World Environment Day, let us continue to embrace the transformative power of sustainable renovations, showcasing our commitment to a greener future and inspiring others to follow suit. Together, we can turn every renovation into a celebration of our environment and make a lasting impact for generations to come.
