In India particularly for New constructions, we are finding it tough to source the construction materials which adhere to the certification format needed by LEED, this is making many clients to go in for green building but not take the rating.

Hi Emmanuel, India has been using LEED India NC & CS for commercial buildings. But, IGBC has been implementing IGBC Green Homes, IGBC Existing Buildings, IGBC Green Factories, IGBC Green Townships, IGBC Green SEZ & IGBC Green Landscape for the respective typology. Recently, IGBC has launched the IGBC Green New Building rating system which would be applicable for commercial buildings. The registrations for this rating system has started from July 1, 2014.

Hi Emmanuel! We have taken many steps to regionalize and localize LEED, a global rating system, through the use of alternative compliance paths. In an effort to strengthen global consistency of the LEED, the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) will now manage certification of projects to all LEED rating systems in India, including assuming responsibility for LEED India certification from the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC). We will continue to build out LEED to increase its flexibility so that it continues to work globally, regionally and locally.
