News > Delhi Metro & Green Building Week

Delhi Metro will be observed World Green Building Week till September 27 to promote construction of environment friendly buildings.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has partnered with Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) to observe the week on the theme "Get up, Green Up".

The Week would be simultaneously observed in over 100 countries all over the world.

Earlier this month, DMRC in association with IGBC and other stakeholders had launched the IGBC Green Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) Rating, which is the world's first comprehensive rating for rail-based MRTS networks.

DMRC Managing Director Mangu Singh had launched the Rating at the 12th edition of the CII-IGBC Green Building Congress held earlier this month at Hyderabad.

Delhi Metro has decided to design all its stations of Phase 3 as green buildings. In a green Metro, the energy consumption would come down by 20 per cent and fresh water usage would come down by 30 per cent.
