The objective of IGBC Green Homes® is to facilitate the effective use of site resources, water conservation, energy efficiency, handling of house-hold waste, optimum material utilization and design for healthy, comfortable & environmentally friendly homes.

The rating system evaluates certain mandatory requirements & credit points using a prescriptive approach and others on a performance based approach. The rating system is evolved so as to be comprehensive and at the same time user-friendly. The programme is fundamentally designed to address national priorities and the quality of life for occupants. The rating programme uses well accepted National standards and wherever local or National standards are not available, appropriate international benchmarks have been considered.
