PROUD MOMENT FOR PAKISTAN GREEN BUILDING COUNCIL

Sustainable construction is a technique for the construction and infrastructure industry to change towards attaining sustainable development, taking into account ecological, socioeconomic and cultural issues. Green building is a practice of creating building designs using methods, that are ecologically responsible and resources- efficient throughout the building’s life cycle. Significant investments can be made by integrated planning and introducing environment friendly designs, involving the architects, engineers, city planners, contractors, policy makers and clients to develop an optimal design in terms of technology, materials and energy savings. 

Green buildings in Pakistan have immense potential and therefore the Policy Guidelines have been introduced. To facilitate this, a national level document ‘Policy Guideline for Green Building Code’ has been developed to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals in the construction industry. These guidelines provide an overview that how the building construction can relate to the sustainable development and are advisory in nature. As well as to strengthening the resource efficiency and sustainable consumption and production. This policy guideline is developed in collaboration with United Nations Environment Program (UN Environment), The European Union (UN), SWITCH- Asia Program and the 10- year program on Sustainable Consumption & Production Patterns (10YFP) Secretariat, with the financial support of the United Nations Development Account (UNDA). And also, with the Federal and Provincial consultation by the National SCP team, led by the Federal Ministry of Climate Change, Government of Pakistan. 

This policy is the first step of Government of Pakistan towards the commitment in enhancing the awareness on sustainable buildings and participating in combating the international challenges of climate change. The essential requirements have been pointed out in this policy for the eco- friendly buildings and also provide the checklist for environmental standards.

Pakistan Green Building Council feels honored and accomplish that the rating system ‘Sustainability in Energy & Environmental Development (SEED)’ developed by Pakistan GBC has been used as a reference in this bench marking step which is taken by the Government of Pakistan towards sustainability. Pakistan GBC has developed the ‘Sustainability in Energy & Environmental Development (SEED)’ rating system with the continuous help and support of our members, all the stake holders and leaders from the construction industry of Pakistan. The ‘Sustainability in Energy & Environmental Development (SEED)’ also meets the international building standards also fulfills the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) requirements. ‘Sustainability in Energy & Environmental Development (SEED)’ is the first ever building rating tool introduced in Pakistan.
