The project “A Policy Strategy for Decarbonizing the Buildings Sector” by Global Building Performance Network (GBPN) aims to guide the state governments in India to adopt appropriate sustainable building policies and energy codes to meet the nation’s climate action commitments of a 33-35% reduction in carbon emissions intensity/Gross Domestic Product (GDP). This report is a product of Phase 1 of this project,which aims to meet the GBPN’s intent to develop a policy implementation pipeline; that walks regional jurisdictions through policy planning, adoption and implementation, by 2020 in India. In the Indian context, the diverse range of local conditions such as various climatic zones, local governing bodies, regulatory methods, vernacular building design adaptations, demographics, and trending construction technologies decide the success or failure of any building policy.
