BANGALORE: Karnataka is home to 41 green buildings, the fourth largest figure for any state in the country. Of them, 39 are in Bangalore.
Green buildings are fast catching the imagination of the people. Though the penetration level is just around 5%, the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) is happy the residential sector is coming up with such buildings. Going by industry prediction, the residential sector — both independent houses and residential apartments — are set to outnumber commercial buildings by 2030 in India.
