Green Architecture in Achieving Sustainable Development Goals

With industrialization, buildings vis-a-vis the built environment increasingly helped establish patterns of consumption that lead to a significant depletion of half of the world’s resources by early 21st century, while giving rise to global warming and climate disruptions. More recently, in order to arrest global warming, resulting from human activities on earth, a civilization target of keeping the temperature rise below 2°C has been agreed upon by communities of the world. In the backdrop of such a scale of the challenge, governments across the world committed to working towards a sustainable future by identifying trans-formative and holistic development goals. In the design, construction and operation of buildings can green architecture provides solutions that are environmentally friendly, socially responsive, functionally and economically appropriate to its contexts while connecting to overarching Sustainable Development Goals? In other words, can a new role for Green Architecture be identified as a facilitator in achieving the development goals? In facing up to such challenges and targets, there is a growing need for a symbiosis between the industry and the academia to come to a common ground and to develop possible partnerships in tackling the issues of sustainability pertaining to the built environment and to inspire environmentally friendly design initiatives.
