Green building technology in libraries: Indian perspectives

Green building technology in libraries: Indian perspectives

Dr. Manju Jain
Green building made with natural and reusable construction material to save the environment as well as human life. Conservation of natural resources such as water through rain water harvesting, Energy through solar and wind energy, electronic media instead of paper and provisions of natural lights and fresh air, are the most important components of the green building technology. The main objectives of the Green library technology is to support the use of environmental friendly and safe materials of building construction to conserve our fast depleting natural resources, reducing carbon footprint, improving indoor air quality. In India also, the vision of Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) is, "To enable a sustainable built environment for all and facilitate India to be one of the global leaders in the sustainable built environment by 2025". The IGBC provides wide range of services such as certification, training and rating program. India is facing very serious issue of air pollution condition is worsening day by day. Another burning problem is shortage of water as an alarming 21 Indian cities are estimated to run out of water by 2030. In order to provide sufficient natural resources and a safe environment to our future generations, many efforts are being made by the whole world, the concept of green building is one of them. Use of reflective glass technology, rainwater harvesting through percolating Wells, use of water efficient equipment and fixtures, use of solar and wind energy, sewage treatment plant are some of the technology we can use for library building for sustainable development.
