l. They i consume 40-60% less electricity compared to conventional buildings by utilizing architectural design improvements, use of intelligent building technologies to reduce power consumption and high efficiency materials like insulations on terrace and walls to prevent heat penetration.

2. These buildings use solar and other non conven- tonal power production techniques to become self-sufficient and independent of grid power and as sociated outage problems.

3. The water consumption is reduced by a large margin due to design of rain water harvesting system, use of plumbing fixtures which use less water, water less urinals, reuse of treated waste water in cooling towers and land scraping and rain water harvesting system.

4. Green buildings have their own waste treatment system which generate biogas or use them as manure or compost.

5. Green building develops erosion and sedimenta- tion control plan for all the activities associated with the project, during construction as well as post construction.

6. Green buildings increase the brand value and hence marketability.

7. Green buildings use more of natural light, building orientation which allow lesser heat inflow which gives a feeling of openness and comfort to occupant. The lesser operational cost results in more profit.
