New Delhi, Jan 13 (IBNS): Minister for Environment, Forests and Climate Change, Prakash Javadekar on Tuesday met the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon at the New Paryavarn Bhavan Building.
Javadekar showcased to the Secretary General salient features of the Green Building and highlighted that the design philosophy of the New Paryavaran Bhavan  focused  on increasing the efficiency of resource usage i.e. energy, water and materials while minimizing the impact of the building on human habitat and the environment. 
 
Javadekar further said that this had been achieved through careful site planning, most appropriate building form and very low effluent disposal and energy production on-site.  
 
The objective was to have a ‘Green Building’ with a state of art modern amenities and comfort with Intelligent Building Management System which optimizes the energy consumption.
 
The basic design concept of the project was to have a  net zero energy consuming green building.  It was expected to be the flag bearer for ‘Green Buildings’. 
 
The building has the highest green building rating of ‘5star’ of GRIHA of Ministry of New & Renewable Energy and also ‘Platinum’ rating of LEED India of Indian Green Building Council.
