IIT Jodhpur receives 5 Star GRIHA LD V1 Rating for its Campus Master Plan
The Master Plan of IIT Jodhpur’s Permanent Campus has been awarded 5 Star Rating by the Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment (GRIHA) Council under GRIHA LD V1 category.
GRIHA Council is an independent platform for the interaction on scientific and administrative issues related to sustainable habitats in the Indian subcontinent. It was founded by TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute, New Delhi) with support from MNRE (Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India). GRIHA Council, in association with The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), has launched the Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment (GRIHA).
To create a framework to assess the environmental performance of larger developments, the singular units which together make up cities, i.e., the neighbourhood and townships, GRIHA Council along with TERI has developed a rating system for Large Developments titled GRIHA LD (Large Developments). The intent of GRIHA LD is to provide a consolidated framework for assessment of environmental impacts of large scale developments. All sites in their native state sustain various ecological cycles and do not have any detrimental impact on their surroundings. Construction leads to disruption of various cycles as well as exerts demand for various resources, like energy and water. Therefore, conventional construction practices have a detrimental impact on their surroundings. In the framework of GRIHA LD, projects that reduce their detrimental impact on the surroundings to the minimum and attempt to become self-sufficient in aspects, like energy and water, are given the highest rating. In GRIHA LD the development is evaluated in six different sections, consisting of quantitative and qualitative parameters in:
1. Site Planning,
2. Energy,
3. Water and waste water,
4. Solid waste management,
5. Transport, and
6. Social.
