The construction industry in India is one of the largest economic activities and is growing rapidly. The International Energy Agency says that estimated that existing buildings are responsible for more than 40% of the world’s total primary energy consumption and for 24% of global carbon dioxide emissions. The construction, characteristics, operation, and demolition of buildings are increasingly recognized as a major source of adverse environmental impact. Without significant transformation of building construction and operations, such impacts are expected to increase with population growth and changes in other demographic and economic factors. One strategy for achieving that transformation is most widely known by the term Green Building. We have gone past the point where going „green‟ is an option. It has now become an absolute necessity to not only mandatorily construct green but rate Green Quotient of our existing buildings also according to suitable green rating systems. In this work, the detailed green rating of the Jain University Campus situated adjacent to state highway, before Kanakpura, Banglore rural district is done. The tool adopted for rating is the IGBC () Green Campus Rating System (New & Existing) Abridged Reference Guide 2017. The rating of the campus in each category has been done and the points have been allotted based on the existing condition of the campus. By this evaluation process, the degree of sustainability of the Campus is analyzed and rating is given. It will be a guiding factor in adapting measures for increasing its sustainability.
