Griha Summit

The 11th edition of GRIHA Summit to be co-hosted by UNSW Sydney & GRIHA Council, is poised to mark the contribution of the GRIHA Council towards advancing the Sustainable Development agenda globally

The 11th edition of India’s Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment Council’s annual flagship event will be co-hosted with UNSW Sydney in December 2019, for the second year in a row. This was announced by Professor Ian Jacobs, UNSW President and Vice-Chancellor and Dr. Ajay Mathur, DG, TERI & President, GRIHA Council in the presence of Her Excellency Ms Harindher Sidhu, High Commissioner of Australia to India.

Professor Jacobs said that with the Summit attracting global leaders on sustainable habitats, experts from industry, government, academia, finance and policy, and other stakeholders, it is acting as a catalyst in environment upgradation. “UNSW’s involvement with the GRIHA summit is part of our broader strategy to have a positive global impact through greater collaboration. We look forward to expanding ties with our partners in India even further through opportunities such as this as well as through education and research in the long-term,” he said.

The GRIHA Summit will bring together experts and consumers to discuss and deliberate on furthering the sustainable habitat agenda in India. In the past, the Summit has brought technical sessions on sustainable building policies, tools and techniques, and exhibitions on sustainable building materials, construction practices, and technologies. This event also witnesses the launch of new initiatives by the GRIHA Council in response to the emerging needs of the building industry and government’s goals.

Dr. Ajay Mathur commented, “The 11th edition of the Summit will showcase collaborative research and development between TERI and UNSW in the built-environment across various thematic areas. This would also provide a step change in the strategic economic partnership between Australia and India, both at the government and business levels.”

GRIHA has been recognized as an effective platform for evaluating the environmental performance of a building over its entire lifecycle, seeking to minimise resource consumption, waste generation, and overall ecological/environmental impact of buildings and habitats.
