VP to unveil India's 1st 5-star green building in Jaipur

India's first five-star rated green building in Jaipur's Achrol area, exclusively dedicated to environment audit, will be ready to be inaugurated by Vice-President Hamid Ansari. The International Centre for Environmental Audit and Sustainable Development (iCED), the first government green building, would be the only one in the country to cater to global training facility in environmental auditing.

Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India has built the institute, after India was chosen as the centre for imparting environmental and sustainable development audit by the International Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI).

Rebecca Mathai, Principal Director iCED said that the institute would be a centre for environment policy research and would focus on waste water, climate change, bio-diversity and sustainable development. This would include carrying out research on policy relating to environmental issues like climate change, household waste, hospital waste, e-waste etc.

The facility seeks to harness India's expertise in conducting more than 100 environment audits in the last 20 years to provide extensive training and a forum for experience sharing in this field. Spread over 16 acres the iCED facility is conceived as a green building and a host of features have been incorporated in design and construction to reduce carbon footprint of the building.
