Green building in Bangladesh’s perspective has touched an unparalleled height as the country has the highest number of LEED green garment factories – 165 factories – With 50 platinum-rated, 101 gold-rated, 10 silver-rated and 4 LEED Certified. LEED Certified Green buildings are becoming a norm in Bangladesh as many builders are opting to construct energy-efficient, low-maintenance buildings.

This concept unexceptionally complements modern architectural designs by allowing ample energy savings and adequate natural light. In addition, it is high time that Bangladesh implements this concept in its construction industry.
