According to the report, ‘Go Green: The Mantra for Sustainable Living’, India ranks second after the US in terms of the number of green technology projects and built-up area. About four percent of buildings in the country are ‘green’ today. India now has an ambitious target of having 10 billion sq ft green building footprint in next years. The Great Indian Green Building Movement today stands high with 4,000 projects. The Indian regulation already mandates housing to have solar panels, sewage treatment plant, and insulation. The main need is to bring the overall building consumption to come down as part of green building movement. However, as India’s population kept expanding and the migration from rural regions to cities kept rising, urban planning needs to fit the increasing number of people and ensures spaces for work and homes. Those if not build according to sustainable principles put immense stress on energy, water and waste. There is a number of business opportunities for European businesses in green and sustainable construction.

Brazil is the second country in the world to implement a new net zero building certification process, following Canada. Brazil is expected to experience steady growth with green buildings over the next few years. This forecast is based on the fast rise of green certifications which has led to a fairly mature market, as well as the introduction of international and local certification schemes which can serve the different needs of the market. Offices and retail – which are leading the market in current certifications – will continue leading the green space in a quick rise of green through 2025, reaching 20% penetration or higher. Due to certification schemes specifically geared to the residential sector, the commercial sector will be quickly followed by the residential market. Overall, IFC forecasts overall green penetration of 20% or even higher. There is a number of business opportunities for European businesses in green and sustainable construction.
