Going “green” has been one of the most noticeable trends in the construction industry in India since the past few years. With the dawn of the 21st century, construction companies, whether small or big, have become more cautious about adopting green practices to build Eco-friendly buildings. Navrattan Infra Private Limited is one such infrastructure development venture in India which has made conscious effort to implement Eco-friendly infrastructure, which has immense scope and relevance in the present scenario.
As of today, all infrastructure projects in India are required to furnish an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report to seek approval from the government of India. Likewise, the developmental projects have to acquire the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) consent to commence work. It raises our concern to know that over the years the EIA norms have been modified to accelerate the approval process leaving behind the environmental concerns linked with infrastructure development.
Social scientists and economist all over the world are pushing for adoption of “green” practices in infrastructure projects to protect the environment. Green infrastructure development is essential to ensure overall India’s economic growth. Even after 68 years of independence, India is still lagging behind many countries of the world in quality infrastructure growth. Despite this a large number of infrastructure companies are adopting energy-efficient technologies and using Eco-friendly cement and other materials for construction purposes.
Also, the growing concern amongst the construction companies the authorities have become more conscious about the importance of sustainable resources for future. To add to it, the industry players are finding green practices to be more commercially viable option as they are now able to curb escalating costs of construction
