The Indian government has linked up its biggest investment idea in recent years with Climate change concerns. The commerce and industry ministry on Monday unveiled its plans to make all special economic zones (SEZs) eco-friendly by mandating the use of renewable energy sources, and energy efficient buildings that conform to internationally recognised standards. Further, the norms, that have been issued as draft guidelines, require SEZ developers to create nurseries as well as provide electric rickshaws for transport within the zone.

When operationalised, developers will have to ensure that SEZ buildings are highly energy efficient by complying with standards set by Indian green building council and energy conservation building code of the Bureau of Energy Efficiency.
