Green design for buildings to become mandatory – The Jakarta Post

The Jakarta administration is taking a step toward creating more energy-efficient buildings by drafting green regulations for future and existing structures.

The regulations are being drafted by the Jakarta Property Management and Control Agency and will form the legal grounding for the green designs, agency head Hari Sasongko said Wednesday.

“Many cities in the world have applied the green building concept. We’re late in doing so and it’s time for us to follow suit as we face limited energy resources and fuel price increases,” he told The Jakarta Post at City Hall during a seminar on green buildings.
