Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment July 2023  
Mr. Sanjay Seth, Vice President & CEO, GRIHA Council
In these unprecedented times, one of the most complex challenges that humanity is confronted with is increasing plastic pollution. Being a complex intertwined socio-economic and environmental challenge, it is endangering both human well-being and the health of ecosystems. This year the theme of World Environment Day- ‘Solutions to Plastic Pollution’ was a reminder to us that our every action has a significant impact on plastic pollution. Let’s focus on responsible production and consumption to combat plastic pollution and accelerate our actions towards building a circular economy.

Commemorating World Environment Day, GRIHA Council participated as the knowledge partner in the Greenovation Expo 2023 held from 05th-06th June at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. GRIHA Council promoted and exhibited information and dissemination material on sustainable building practices, energy efficiency, waste and water management in built environment, sustainable building materials and construction management techniques.

The Vice President and CEO, GRIHA Council was invited to the Annual CEO Gathering and Leaders Conference organized by the Global Cement and Concrete Association in Zurich on the 13th and 14th June 2023.

During the conference, India’s perspective and steps taken to integrate sustainability across the value chain was also shared with the industry experts. Many industry partners evoked interest in the works of GRIHA Council and came forward for potential collaborations.
