About the project
India’s booming construction market and growing real estate sector present a unique opportunity for sustainable transformation. By 2025, India is expected to become the world’s third-largest construction market, contributing 13% to the country’s GDP and reaching a market size of US$1 trillion by 2030. However, the sector currently accounts for approximately 25% of India’s greenhouse gas emissions, a figure that is expected to rise further due to increasing energy demand and traditional building practices.
The Decarbonisation Business Charter was envisioned to establish a unified platform that unites key stakeholders and promotes the decarbonization of the building and construction sector while addressing shared challenges and opportunities. World Resources Institute India (WRI India), Alliance for an Energy-Efficient Economy (AEEE), Mahindra Lifespace Developers Limited, and EcoCollab collaborated to develop this initiative. The charter serves as a framework to identify and prioritize critical actions towards achieving the goal of reducing carbon emissions in the sector. For more details on the Decarbonisation Business Charter, find the brochure here. The charter has also garnered the gracious support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
