New Delhi, June 10 (IBNS): The 11th edition of India’s Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment (GRIHA) Council’s annual flagship event will be co-hosted with UNSW Sydney in December 2019.

The GRIHA Summit brings together experts and consumers to discuss and deliberate on furthering the sustainable habitat agenda in India. It has been recognized as an effective platform for evaluating the environmental performance of a building holistically over its entire lifecycle, seeking to minimise resource consumption, waste generation and overall ecological/environmental impact of buildings and habitats.

Professor Ian Jacobs, UNSW Vice-Chancellor, said, “I am delighted that UNSW will further strengthen its partnership with The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) through collaboration on the GRIHA Summit. As the first university in the Summit’s history to co-host the Summit last year, we feel honoured to be invited back to partner with TERI on this important gathering.”

Professor Jacobs said that with the summit attracting global leaders on sustainable habitats, experts from industry, government, academia, finance and policy, and the thousands of delegates from overseas, it can be the catalyst to taking real strides in helping our environment.

“UNSW’s involvement with the GRIHA summit is part of our broader strategy to have a positive global impact through greater collaboration. We look forward to expanding ties with our partners in India even further through opportunities such as this as well as through education and research in the long-term.”

UNSW academics are doing cutting edge research projects in areas as diverse as clean energy and sustainable housing, waste water treatment and intelligent transport systems. UNSW’s partnerships with GRIHA, TERI and MNRS reflects its ambition to work closely with its neighbouring countries to address the sustainable development challenges.

About 50% of the solar panels sold worldwide today use UNSW-designed technology, and alumni of QS 45 ranked globally UNSW, Sydney are at the forefront of the photovoltaics and energy transition industries globally.

Dr Ajay Mathur, President, GRIHA Council and Director General, TERI said “I welcome the UNSW team to co-create the ‘11th GRIHA Summit’ with the GRIHA Council. The Summit platform would be leveraged to showcase collaborative research and development between TERI and UNSW in the built-environment across various thematic areas. This would also provide a step change in the strategic economic partnership between Australia and India, both at the government and business levels.”
