Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment (GRIHA) green building rating evaluates the environmental performance of a building holistically over its entire life cycle, thereby providing a definitive standard for what constitutes a green building. Conserve Team comprises of Certified GRIHA Trainer and Auditors which facilitates in creating sustainable values for the GRIHA, SVA-GRIHA and GRIHA Large Development projects.
The Energy and Resource Institute (TERI) developed GRIHA (Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment), which was adopted as the national rating system for green buildings by the Government of India in 2007. The rapid increase in Indian population and growth of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has given rise to an enormous demand for buildings with a subsequent pressure on availability of resources, especially water. GRIHA attempts to minimise a building’s resource consumption, waste generation, and overall ecological impact to within certain nationally acceptable limits/benchmarks.
The stages in the lifecycle of a project that have been identified for evaluation are: pre-construction stage, building planning and construction stage, and building operation and maintenance stage.
