Urban Tree Oxygen is built to enjoy the advantages of green buildings for sustainable environmental development and management. With climate change, energy, water efficiency and waste management becoming areas of national concern, sustainability and green can no longer be ignored by anyone or any sector really. Today, in most parts of the world and in India as well, sustainable developments are slowly replacing traditional construction and building practices in an effort to minimize negative impacts on the environment as much as possible. In India, a new rating system named IGBC Green Homes Rating System which is first of its kind given exclusively to the residential structures. The benefits of green homes are many. They help save energy, conserve water and recycle waste. Green homes are not new to India. A Green Home can have tremendous benefits, both tangible and intangible. The immediate and most tangible benefit is in the reduction in water and operating energy costs right from day one, during the entire life cycle of the building.
