Green building development has gained momentum in India despite global economic slowdown, with its supply rising manifold to 6.8 million sq ft in the last seven years, a study said.

The total supply of green space has increased to 6.8 million square ft till September from 3.8 million square ft in early 2007, mostly contributed by IT/ITeS sector, the report said.

Green buildings are designed to have a longer life-cycle, and help conserve natural resources such as water, while consuming minimal power and energy.

Prominent green projects include ITC Green Centre (Gurgaon), CII-Godrej Green Business Centre (Hyderabad) and Kalpataru Square (Mumbai).
