We will have to take certain ambitious policy decisions, taking the developers, architects and stakeholders into confidence.

Sustainable Housing Leadership Consortium

Convened in 2016, Sustainable Housing Leadership Consortium (SHLC) is a voluntary private sector consortium led by the CEOs of leading developers and financial institutions to address the inadequacy of resources in a rapidly urbanizing India. Founding members include real estate titans Godrej Properties, Mahindra Lifespace Developers, Shapoorji Pallonji Real Estate, Tata Housing Development Company and VBHC Value Homes, as well as financial institutions like HDFC and PNB Housing Finance Corporation.

Green Affordable Housing

To address the shortage of urban housing, approximately 11 million new homes are to be constructed over the next few years under the Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana (PMAY). Construction at this scale will put significant strain on the supply of resources like water and electricity, as well as increasing the output of waste materials like greenhouse gasses. To support PMAY in the endeavour to create ‘Housing for All’, but also to mitigate the environmental impact of this massive national project, the International Finance Corporation (IFC) established the Green Affordable Housing program.
