Can you please mention the LEED Statistics in India? How many projects have been registered in India upto August 2016? How many projects have been certified in India for USGBC upto August 2016? -Money Khanna

Sweet stats but can we compare the data with the rest of the building industry so that we can track market penetration?

Hi Paul, that would be something to achieve. Unfortunately, we do not have data on the rest of the building industry. Organizations such as Dodge http://construction.com/market_research/ would be the ones who have broader information. A Google search of 'construction market research' shows a few others as well. I hope this helps.

Congratulations on the great statistics, but once again LEED ND is missing. This has also happened in previous Marketing announcements, and it would be great if ND could be recognized in the future.
