Corporate social responsibility for builders-Icon Homz

Building homes is equivalent to building a society and a good society thrives on better living standards and a transparent relationship with the governing authorities. From this point of view, it is necessary for the real estate industry to not only provide quality homes at affordable rates but also see to it that greater good to brought on to the larger community.

A builder’s responsibility does not end with constructing apartments and villas. There are many ways in which he can contribute towards a greener and healthier lifestyle for the common man.

Waste management: Once the handover of the apartment is done, the residents form an association of their own to carry out the future proceedings. However, the builder can pitch in to conducting a waste management workshop for the residents and future association and help the association make a smooth transition into an environment-friendly society.

Tie-up with NGOs: there are several NGOs that work towards the upliftment of the underprivileged in the society. Builders could tie-up with one of these that work towards the cause they support and organize regular donation drives or workshops in which the residents can whole-heartedly contribute.

Conserve water and save the future – Icon Infra Shelters India PVT.Ltd

Summer is here and we’ll soon be faced with the severity of water shortage in many parts of the city. With increasing urbanization and changing climatic conditions, conserving water has become the critical need of the hour.

Since every drop counts, we must make use of the rain water by investing in rain harvesting techniques. Every building must be equipped to arrest the natural water and convert it for usable purposes.

A city once aplenty with natural lakes has sadly not conserved the natural body with many of them drying up or turning into garbage grounds. Serious policies are necessary to revive and maintain the city lakes.

Every individual can contribute in many ways. Caution needs to be exercised with every day usage of water and care needs to be taken to see that there is no wastage or over-usage of water. The water rejected from the water purifier can be stored to use for purposes other than drinking like watering of plants or washing clothes.

Installation of individual water meter in an apartment complex is seen as an expensive affair but it should be seen as a long term and important investment that will help in curbing unwanted consumption of water by levying charges as per the usage.

Builders too have a collective responsibility towards the society. Green building is expected to be the buzzword in the coming years. Best building practices like incorporating water efficiency and conservation in the construction and using water-efficient plumbing fixtures need to be adopted.

*Experts in the field point out that green building will be the next buzzword which will drive sales in the near future.  “Builders have been adopting methods to conserve water and energy for the past few years. Now the concept gathers momentum and we feel this as a step towards the green building concept,” said M V Antony, president, CREDAI-Kochi.
