Abstract: Technology has increased tremendously in the past decades but on the negative side problems like global warming, ozone layer depletion, pollution, deforestation and climate change are ultimately causing a massive destruction and is leading the world towards a catastrophe. Our aim should now be to safeguard our environment which has been gravely affected. The only solution for this problem is the concept to green technology which is applicable to buildings, cars ,fuel etc. Development of infrastructure leads to about 30% pollution thus in order to counteract green buildings are the only solution. Green buildings is the practice of building structures using processes which help in expanding and increasing efficiency in terms of energy, water and materials and also these structures do not have any harmful impact on human wellbeing and the surrounding environment. Also there is a need to reduce the carbon footprints which is the amount of greenhouse gas emissions caused by a product. In this paper an attempt has been made to discuss about the concept of green buildings after visiting of one of the most prestigious green buildings constructed in India which is Oil and natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) Green Building which has been 735 certified emissions including Indian Green Building Council (IGBC),Green Rating For Integrated Habitat Assessment (GRIHA) certifications and is also given Leadership In Energy And Environmental Design (LEED) platinum certification. Thereby giving insights on how energy conservation can be done at various levels and under different geographic locations.
