1
GREEN CERTIFICATION
  • Dr Lalith Senaweera
  • Director General/CEO
  • Sri Lanka Standards Institution

2
WHY GREEN-Global Issues, Local Opportunity
  • Climate change
  • Natural resource depletion
  • Water pollution

By 2035, 75 of buildings will be new or renovated
  • Ecological degradation
  • Human health
  • Energy security
  • Water scarcity

Green Building Why?
3
Development and Water Consumption
  • Global
  • 1900-2000 consumption rate doubled that of
    population
  • 2025 2/3 population in water stressed
    conditions

Green Building Why?
4
Development and Natural Resources
  • Global
  • Buildings account for 40 of raw material use
  • CD waste is 20 of world waste stream
  • 2.8 pounds / person / day
  • 1998-2002 Number of landfills dropped by 77

Green Building Why?
5
Buildings and Energy
  • Energy
  • Buildings account for ½ of total energy
    consumption

Green Building Why?
6
Buildings and Climate Change
  • Business as usual
  • 2 C rise by 2050
  • 3 C rise by 2100

1 rise 100 in coastal flooding
Green Building Why?
7
  • Sea-level rise projections a few inches to a
    few feet
  • 2 ft U.S. would lose 10,000 square miles
  • Affects erosion, loss of wetlands, freshwater
    supplies
  • Half of the worlds population lives along coasts
  • Big question Ice sheets

8
Development and Wetlands
  • Global
  • 1900-2000 ½ of wetlands lost
  • 3.4 billion value

Green Building Why?
9
HUMAN HEALTH ABOUT LIVING INDOOR
  • Do we know that
  • Most of us spend about 90 of our time in
    indoors
  • Many building product contain Chemicals commonly
    known as Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) that
    emit harmful vapours over time
  • In a short time these vapours effect health
    running nose, tears from the eyes and throat
    irritation are typical symptoms.
  • Over time, indoor chemical vapours from building
    materials may seriously impact reproductive
    health, increase the risk of cancer and
    contribute to respiratory illness like asthma
  • Children and elders are more vulnerable to
    building material toxicity and indoor air
    pollution

10
Buildings and Human Health
  • Indoor Air Quality
  • Pollutant levels can be 10-100 times outdoors
  • 2007 Study 9 out of 10 homes have poor IAQ
  • particle allergens
  • chemical pollutant,
  • CO2
  • temperature
  • humidity
  • carbon monoxide
  • Costs
  • 30 billion/year in health care costs
  • 100 billion in sick leave and productivity

Green Building Why?
11
Fundamentals
  • Humans need protection from
  • elements
  • Human population is growing
  • Built environment is increasing

Overview
Think Green
How can an environmentally conscious business use
their community and social concern to create a
competitive advantage for themselves while
encouraging others to do their part in saving the
planet for future generations?
13
Objectives
  • Enhance your image in the community
  • Improve your reputation with current customers
  • Attract new customers
  • Reduce operational cost
  • Better employee relations
  • Increased free publicity for green products
  • Differentiating your business from your
    competitors
  • Demonstrate to the world you are an
    environmentally aware company

14
What is sustainability
  • A strategy by which communities seek economic
    development approaches that also benefit the
    local environment and quality of life..

15
Is a process of achieving human development
  • Contributed through effective management of
    social ,economic and environment benefits

16
Global Drivers of Sustainability
  • Increasing Industrialization
  • Proliferation Interconnection of Civil
    Stakeholders
  • Emerging Technology
  • Effects of Globalization- poverty, inequity,
    population explosion

17
Triple Bottom Line
  • TBL or "3BL",

18
What is TBL
  • An expanded spectrum of values and criteria for
    measuring organizational and societal success
    economic, environmental, social.
  • In the private sector, a commitment to CSR
    implies a commitment to some form of TBL
    reporting.

19
  • The Triple Bottom Line is made up of "Social,
    Economic and Environmental"
  • "People, Planet, Profit "

22
Triple Bottom Line Accounting
  • Expanding the traditional reporting framework
  • Take into account environmental and social
    performance in addition to financial performance.
  • Company's responsibility to 'stakeholders' rather
    than shareholders.

23
GLOBAL REPORTING INITIATIVE GRI
  • ?? The Global Reporting Initiative attempts to
    make the
  • Triple Bottom Line operational
  • ?? VISION
  • The Global Reporting Initiatives (GRI) vision is
    that
  • reporting on economic, environmental, and social
  • performance by all organizations becomes as
    routine
  • and comparable as financial reporting. GRI
  • accomplishes this vision by developing,
    continually
  • improving, and building capacity around the use
    of
  • its Sustainability Reporting Framework.

24
Sustainability
Categorizing Sustainability Indicators
  • Categories are based on
  • TBL
  • Relationship between the daily practices and
    sustainability
  • Strength of this relationship
  • Ex In the UN CSD, proportion of urban
    population living in slums addresses this
    relationship directly through poverty, whereas
    this relationship is also addressed indirectly
    through health, governance or land.
  • Characteristics of the building industry

25
TRENDS CHALLENGES
  • CHANGING BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT

26
Environmental Concerns
  • Will CLEAN air water continue to be available ?
  • Will food be from polluted source ?
  • Will flora fauna continue to exist ?
  • Will there be more flooding ?
  • Will there be more new diseases ?
  • Will the temperature of the environment be rising
    ?

27
How are WE positioned in this Storm ?
28
  • Can the Human Race do Something ?

29
YES ! THEY CAN
30
Green the Supply Chain
  • ONE ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION
  • IS
  • TO GO FOR GREEN

Green Building How?
31
Background
  • The drive to go green is undoubtedly welcome as
    the problems of water shortage, energy crisis and
    climate change are seemingly here to stay.
  • Also the green concept has to be developed for
    local context so that they can be still be
    applied within the local and financial needs.

32
Green Building
  • Green buildings have less negative impact on
    the environment than standard buildings.
  • Their construction minimizes on-site grading,
    saves natural resources by using alternative
    building materials, and recycling construction
    waste rather than sending truck after truck to
    landfills.

33
WORLD ACCEPTABLE STANDARDS
  • LEED CERTIFICATION - USA
  • BREEAM CERTIFICATION- UK
  • CASBEE CERTIFICATION- JAPAN
  • GREEN GLOBE -USA
  • GREEN STAR - AUSTRALIA
  • GREEN RATING SYSTEM- SRI LANKA

35
Requirements for Green Building Certification
  • Designing According to the Triple Bottom Line
  • economic performance,
  • contribution to employment,
  • protection of biodiversity,
  • labor processes,
  • security,
  • public health,
  • access to energy,
  • access to clean water,
  • education
  • cultural preservation

36
Assessing Ssustainability
Types of Assessment
  • Three common methods of assessment
  • End-user impact assessment
  • Lifecycle assessment
  • Lifestyle assessment

37
End-user impact
  • Calculation of negative externalities created by
    the direct actions of the end users
  • Externalities (carbon footprint, hazardous gas
    emissions, waste production, etc.) are calculated
    by looking at the consumption processes of goods
    and services.

38
Lifecycle
  • Introduced during the UN Earth Summit in Rio in
    1992
  • Production, transportation and consumption
    process of products and services
  • Ex Evaluating buildings CO2 emission requires
    calculation of CO2 emission that has been created
    throughout the excavation, production and
    transportation of the building materials, as well
    as the CO2 produced by direct use of energy in
    the building.

39
Future lifestyle
  • Preserving todays consumption oriented,
    individualistic vision
  • Curbing the externalities of peoples unlimited
    desires by technological advances
