The Chairman of Ceylon Institute of Builders, Dr. Rohan Karunaratne said: “We need to create greater awareness on Green Buildings amongst all industry stakeholders in Sri Lanka. The CIOB took the initiative of sufficiently educating itself on the concept of Green Buildings, and embark on chartering a course for future work to encourage the construction of green buildings in Sri Lanka”.
