Over the next five years, experts say, India's green building sector will outpace the growth of the country's overall construction sector. But with today's green infrastructure penetrating just 3% of all construction, India's green building boom may have only just begun.
Evidence of this trend is already apparent. In July 2010, Terminal 3 was opened at New Delhi's international airport, becoming the world's first and largest terminal building to win a LEED-Gold certification. Soon after, the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Hyderabad won a LEED-Silver rating.
