Dialogue on green buildings: policy and practice within the European Union and India
The Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) recognizes the
importance of green buildings and the role they play in improving
energy efficiency in the building and construction sector. It has identified energy efficiency, with particular focus on green buildings, as a key area for India and the European Union (EU) to share experiences on. Dialogue on this subject is intended to lead to the identification of steps towards the formulation of a green building framework, particularly the development of policies, legislation
and codes for better energyefficient buildings.
