  1. 1. We extract 50% more natural resources than what we did just 30 years back.
  2. 2. History of consumption through the ages
  3. 3. For every ton of product, we extract 70-100 tons of raw material
  4. 4. Our extraction of natural resources could increase to 100 billion tons by 2030. billiontons
  5. 5. Only one per cent of water is fresh. Should we not recycle it?
  6. 6. More than 20 % increase in freshwater discharge into the oceans today from 2000 AD.
  7. 7. Energy use per person increased 10%. while world population increased 27% in the last 20 years.
  8. 8. Just over .02 per cent of energy produced is by solar. Incident solar energy is TWICE as much as all energy received from non-renewables in a year!
  9. 9. Just solar and wind could take care of all our needs if we learnt to accept such concepts and tweaked more efficiency into present designs.
  10. 10. Indoor air pollution and urban air quality – two of the most toxic pollution problems of the world.
  11. 11. Emissions increased by 16 times in 100 years
  12. 12. Used to be that India as a country never had a concept of “Waste” just half a century back. Today, Indian cities alone generate more than 100 million tons of solid waste a year
  13. 13. One third of gas emissions come from the food sector…when zero food miles is possible
  14. 14. Would we need three planets by 2050? Or shall we reduce it to one?
  15. 15. Potential for saving energy in buildings ranges from 27 to 59 per cent.
  16. 16. “70% of the world’s population is projected to live in urban areas by 2050, exacerbating challenges such as air pollution, transport congestion and waste management.” -OECD Why Innovate? Why Sustainably so?
  17. 17. “The world economy will be 4 times larger by 2050 and is projected to use 80% more energy”. -OECD
  18. 18. Indian Proverb that says: “ We cannot be like a cat that closes its eyes, and thinks the world has become dark enough to go to bed.”
  19. 19. “More than 3 in 5 people think that sharing is ‘better for the environment’ and 3 in 4 believe their sharing of physical objects and spaces will increase by 2015.” - The New Sharing Economy
  20. 20. The GSP Way of thinking… Implanting the DNA of Sustainability
  21. 21. Building it Green For Green Spring Energy  Office Space of 1600 sq m  For 75 people
  22. 22. 20% reduction in Concrete by replacing RCC with Stone retaining walls Arched Retaining walls
  23. 23. Closed circular forms are inherently stronger structurally.
  24. 24. 30% lesser concrete quantity, reducing Carbon footprint Filler SlabConstruction
  25. 25. 37% Savings on Lighting loads by using Energy Efficient Fixtures
  26. 26. Building oriented to shield interiors from harsh weather
  27. 27. Optimum window design to reduce heat gain due to direct sunlight
  28. 28. Earth Berming reduces internal temperature along with building orientation to 32 deg C during peak summer
  29. 29. Large masonry dome over conference room reducing need for RCC roof
  30. 30. Walls made of stone available locally reducing use of concrete blocks
  31. 31. Stone walls along with earth berm add to the thermal mass of the building bringing internal temperatures down.
  32. 32. Blanket of native plants over building which will bring down the temperature further still
  33. 33. Green AC using onsite chilled waste water for cooling for the remaining 8 degrees reduction
  34. 34. Flooring made of natural soft stones available locally. Not imported. Not vitrified.
  35. 35. Sandbag retaining walls eliminating need for concrete retaining walls
  36. 36. All lighting needs are powered by high efficiency solar panels
  37. 37. Carbon Footprint of Green Spring Energy: 28000 Kg of CO2 Carbon Footprint of similar office buildings with regular structural design: 35000 Kg of CO2 Carbon Footprint of a regular metal frame office in Hamriyah Free Zone: 55000 Kg of CO2
  38. 38. If all offices in Hamriyah Free Zone Phase 1 were designed sustainably it could have saved 150,174,000 Kg of CO2
