GRIHA LD, a new rating system for green large area developments, which will provide planning practices and guidelines to reduce the environmental impact of large-scale developments, was launched on Thursday.

The ministry of new and renewable energy in collaboration with the Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and Association for Development and Research of Sustainable Habitats (ADARSH) launched GRIHA LD at the 4th edition of the ministry’s flagship event ‘National Conference on Green Design’.   

Calling for adoption of GRIHA LD, president Pranab Mukherjee said, “It’s adoption should give a fillip to both the public and private sector to construct environmental friendly buildings in a big way.”
