A year after launch of GRI standards - Where do we stand?

Image
GRI replaced the old G4 Guidelines with the latest GRI standards on October 19th, 2016, developed through multi-stakeholder processes.  There were 28 launch events spanning across 25 counties.  The events were all held between October 2016 and September 2017, bringing together Sustainability reporting consultantEnvironmental Consultant, and other professionals within this field.
 A majority of the professionals who attended the events said the standards will help support and improve the quality of reporting.  More than 150 organizations have joined the Standards Pioneer program, showing their support to the GRI Standards and future of sustainability disclosure. For some, transitioning to the Standards supports their broader reporting efforts.  The Standards consist of a modular, interrelated structure, and represents the global best practice for reporting on a range of economic, environmental, and social impacts.

Indoor Air Quality in Green Buildings

Image
Indoor air quality plays an important part in the well-being of people residing in the building. A conventional home built without any green building considerations will have emissions that may affect the health and well-being of the individuals. Some of the common factors that affect the quality of indoor air are:
ØVOC emissions from indoor finishes such as paints/coatings, adhesives & sealants, formaldehyde emission from furnished products etc;
ØContaminants in the breathable air supplied by mechanical ventilation systems; ØAir pollution due to usage of tobacco products inside the building interiors in a mechanical ventilated space;
ØPollutants accumulated in the mechanical ventilation systems such as ducts, FCU/BCU, VAV/CAV, AHU’s during construction due to poor practices during construction.All the above mentioned factors affect the quality of indoor air which as a result affects the health of the individuals.

GE3S: Development with sustainability

Image
The might of infrastructure engineering knows no bound in the present day and age. No feat is too big in the current scenario that cannot be achieved. And with an ever-growing population, the demands for a bigger, better urban spaces keep on increasing at a rate that has never been heard of before. But is that all we require to survive; a planet confined by the walls of concrete? 


The term development should not only be confined to simply achieving what has never been done before but rather incorporate an approach towards sustainability in every step that we take. It doesn’t take an economist to understand that the resources we have are limited and if not used judicially, we might not even have enough fuel to keep the juggernaut of urbanisation even in motion anymore. Hence for a cleaner, greener and better tomorrow, the need of the hour are sustainable infrastructure and energy solutions, and that is one of the many areas GE3S is working in.

The world is rapidly changing right in front of our eyes every day. Every action affects the planet in some way or the other. With the swiftly changing world, we require an immediate change in the current definition of the word ‘development’. Development now doesn’t only mean mounting larger than life infrastructures but also minimizing the damage that these mammoth projects will have on planet earth. In fewer words, construction with care.
For the economic development of a country, infrastructure is a must. But we often neglect the environmental aspects of our actions; blinded by a continuous frenzy of building colossal pieces of construction. And irreparable environmental losses limit the prospect of future economic growth. And that’s when GE3S comes into the picture.

GE3S is a consultancy and advisory organization which guides its clients through the entire process, starting from planning to demolition, and helps them in constructing with sustainability, resulting in efficiently util…
