As the modern real estate prepares itself for the climate changes, the property owners, stewards, investors, and tenants, all feel the impact on the building sustainability. This is because when the property depreciates faster, its maintenance cost increases whether for regular maintenance or penalties.

Many buildings in Mohali and Zirakpur show a *Green Building* certificate in the facility itself whether in the visitors’ reception area, or in lobby. Real estate are long-term assets. The projects in Mohali Aerocity and on the Mohali Airport Road promise a lot of economic growth in the region and adjacent locations for business, employment, retail and logistics, and housing demand. The commercial and residential property owners need to plan for beyond the certificates, to make real and meaningful contribution for the climate compliance.
