Mumbai has 12% of the nation's 2,007 LEED-Certified Green Buildings

The most extensively used green building rating system in the world is called Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, and it was created by the nonprofit US Green Building Council. It turns out that Mumbai is home to 276 of India's 2,291 LEED-certified green buildings, placing it second on the list behind Bengaluru, which has 460.

With the broader context of heatwaves, water scarcity, and mounting concerns about climate change, the US-based non-profit US Green Building Council (USGBC) shared this observably positive information about the quickly redeveloping financial center with Mumbai Mirror after its president Peter Templeton's recent visit to Mumbai, roughly 30 years after his last.

The USGBC-developed LEED point system is used to evaluate a building's sustainability and environmental performance. Buildings can become certified at four different levels: Certified, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Points are awarded for achieving standards in areas such as energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality. Different property kinds or projects, such as Building Design and Construction (BD+C), Interior Design and Construction (ID+C), and Operations and Maintenance (O+M), are catered to by different rating systems.
