Green Building Council Indonesia

Introduction: Why Are We Becoming Green?
Green is at  the  moment  a popular term  in our  daily  life; most of  companies and businesses claimed that they  are in “green communities”, by merely applying certain feature in their properties. A lot of new property development claim that their development is “green”. Green is becoming  a new  trend nowadays.  Some Indonesian  architects and engineers have been designing and applying the green principles in the design and achieve what supposed to be a green building standard. It is not merely a trend, it has to be a lifestyle change, the demand of the consumer  of  a “green”  living  environment  meets the  planet current conditions,  climate change and degrading environmental  conditions.  It  is important  that  Indonesia starting  to establish a Green Building Council. “Green” has become the shorthand term for the concept of sustainable development as applied  to the  building  industry. Green buildings, also known as high performance buildings,  are intended to be environmentally  responsible, economically profitable, and healthy places to live and work.
The  environmental  impact of  the  building  design, construction  and operation  industry  is significant.  Buildings annually  consume significant  amount  of  energy,  electricity,  water  and produce waste. Development shifts land usage away from natural, biologically-diverse habitats to hard-space that  is impervious and devoid of  biodiversity.  The  far reaching  influence  of  the built  environment  necessitates the  action  to reduce its impact.  Green  building  practice can significantly reduce or eliminate negative environmental  impacts and improve existing unsustainable design, construction and operation practices. As an added benefit, green design measures  reduce  operating  cost,  enhance building marketability,  increase worker productivity, and reduce potential liability from indoor air quality problems. In other words, green design has environmental,  economic and social  elements that  benefit  all  building  stakeholders,  including owners, owners, occupant and general public. 
Green  Building Council  Indonesia; Promoting  Sustainable Building  Concept in The Archipelago
In Indonesia,  the  national  development  performance targets for Sustainable Buildings developed  by  Green Building  Council  Indonesia  (GBCI),  a non-for-profit  organization with a mission to support, promote and maintain the goal of market transformation, changing industry and public behavior, creating a forum and dialogue, build community and expertise in building and environmentally  friendly  construction.  They  legally  authorized  and cooperated  with the Ministry of Environments (KLH) which do the research activities with all aspect of management of natural resources, conduct the  environmental  impact  assessment,  environmental management  and  laws,  conservation of  coastal  beaches and waters,  control  pol ution, waste treatment  technology,  environmental  health and  another.  For  supporting  the  targets,  recently they authorized the criteria and green building certification. The government should encourage and facilitate initiative of  the  stakeholders in implementing  mitigation and  adaptation climate change through  the  management-friendly  building  environment.  The  perceived  barriers of  this government  agency  is stil   biased in laws and regulations which are made of  green building regulations to serve as guidelines in building  the  future, because the  legislation base of  less powerful  in determining the  domain of  green building  terms.  Their  understanding  was often separated  from  “Green  Building”  in its implementation,  while  another  one has a close relationship to answer the chal enges faced. On the other hand, in recent years the Ministry of Environment  (KLH)  seeks to promote Sustainable City as a place  of  establishment  of Sustainable Building, through “Program Bangun Praja” which aims to improve performance in environmental management, and better encourage other regions outside the capital to join apply with fixed focus in creating Sustainable City in its infancy, covering up the management of the building  footing  and green  open  space (including  shade),  the  management  of  public facilities, polution control and waste water.
The second government agency involved to determine the performance target was The Ministry of  Public Works  (PU)  as government-related  elements that  always made resources,  such  as from  Directorate  of  Technical  Planning  and Settlement  Development,  Directorate General “Cipta Karya”  and  Directorate Development  and  Restructuring  Settlements.  The  Ministry  of Public Works commits to support  the  issues which wil   build their  new  Directorate General  of Water  Resources (SDA)’s building  in their  complex.  The  8th  (eight)  floor  of  the  building  is targeted  to  be  completed  by  the  end of  2010.  This building  wil   use  the  concept  of  Green Building  energy  efficient.  Architecture of  this building  will  be  getting  tropical-style lighting  and natural  ventilation very  possible without the  Air  Conditioner.  This building  wil   also use  the recycle water where there wil  be many pond or rain water capacities even in the 3rd floor which created the park in addition to socialization, to relax but also serves to bin water. In general, the interior is made from recycle materials that reflect sustainable architecture. The Minister hoped that this building can be a “Pilot-Project” building in terms of energy, simplicity, effectiveness and flexibility,  even  for people who  have physical  disorders such  as blind  people.  In  terms  of energy saving and office-room sharing must follow the requirements of new and in accordance with the  new  rules. According  to Mr. Achmad Noerzaman Director  from   PT.  Arkonin,  the architecture consultant  said the  modern  building  is based on  the  principles of  sustainable architecture or green architecture by inserting the nature theme, incorporating natural elements such  as air  as possible,  and by  extending  the  natural  landscape  garden  in the  building. This building  will  broadcast  20% without air-conditioning  at  a  given  time can  be  used  without air conditioning and enough air to get well, but the risk is the problem of pol ution, noise and dust the way of overcoming it is to reproduce the green elements as possible, although not optimal but can be cultivated office operation. The air-conditioning can be used only for 5-7 hours with automation  system;  we hope  this building  can  save 15-20% because designing  a quantitative area 20% with no air conditioning. Thus also reproduce the surface rain water reservoir, using catchment, drainage of rainwater reply was not discarded but direct-use.
According  to the  Director  General  of Water  Resources  (SDA),  Ministry  of  Public Works  (PU), Mr. Iwan Nursyirwan, actual y the idea of this building has long master plan around 2003. The new  concept  of green building  to save electricity  is good lighting  so as not  to require a lot  of lights and lots of open space and air conditioning can be reduced as the elevator corridor and have applied all the existing “Building of Action” for people with disabilities, the blind and fire facilities. 
Together, Regional Development Agencies revise the law on regulation of building construction activities from design stage through to implementation on site towards the friendly environment. Continually improving the RUTR (general plan spatial) and RTDR (spatial details of the plan) for the management of land use and structure for more optimal space, more effective policies and local  initiatives to reduce disparities/administration  direct to ecologically-based  planning. The approach taken in planning can be:
-      Administrative
-      Technical       : An approach based on the laws / regulations
: The  balance between waking  and natural  on  the development
footprint  special  treatment  (hazard)  in the  damaged  area  with consideration of ecological, economic and aesthetic Regional development of performance targets are also monitored by the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources (ESDM), in making regulations for the building efficiency levels that wil  be applied  as building-database-system  to create the  index  for  some  typical  types of  buildings according to locality, continuing to dissemination to the general public and relevant agencies to promote public awareness that  can  enhance  the level  of  awareness of  energy  efficiency  in industry  and construction  planning.  Things that must  have to do  is  cooperate with the Directorate General of Taxes of Republic Indonesia and Ministry of Finance active in providing incentives and disincentives in the form of ease of procedure and the tax rate policy.
In related  to  energy  efficiency  in Sustainable Building,  in some cases,  the  simple incentives scheme can  be  shown from the  cooperation the  tenant  of  building  (private or public)  with the landlord (the  government)  to share the  cost  of  their  building  operations,  installations, replacement  and maintenance.  The  recovery  of  cost is really  proposition  even  accounting  for tenant  turnover and depreciation. Because  it  makes the  landlord responsible for capital investment and might be can give the benchmark of energy use for the building toward reducing the use of the non-renewable resource. With the requirement, they must agree to the following provision governing rules.

The Green Investment Status
Projections in Indonesia's economy improved in 2010 compared to 2009 made many sectors of business activities have the prospect of a brighter and is expected to grow rapidly, but besides that, also the dynamics of non-sectoral business activities which would appear to thrive well into the future of the business activities associated with environmental conservation live. Specifically grouped, activities related to business-friendly  aspects of  the  environment  can  be  divided into three main businesses.  First,  the  efforts of  producing  goods  that  can  directly  reduce  carbon emissions. This product is the substitution of fossil fuels which have been widely used but lack of  awareness commitment  from various parties in this respect. Second, the industry which supporting  environmentally  friendly  activities and the  industry  with  their  work-environment friendly to the environment itself. Both of them simultaneously function as a complement of its main businesses. It  can  be  seen from  the  building  materials made in Indonesia will gradualy produce more friendly to the local environment. As a supporting business in the short term, they cannot provide a significant  contribution but slowly began to contribute the majority of income then, the investors who want to get more optimal benefits; this investment is a very wise choice. Most of them call it "Green Economy" in Sustainable Building

Policy that Promote Sustainable Building Concept
The implementation of the Green Building concept was supported by multi aspect, regulation from the central government, regulation of the local government; consultant, owner, and other stake holder give contribution to these issues. Anyway, this is a process that everybody in the different field must keep the effort to achieve. The society as acting the end user, also have a significant  factor.  It  takes time to create the  awareness among  the  stake holder  and users. Pamela Cepe  (2004)  suggest  six  steps to implement green building for  local  Indonesia’s government :
-  Inventory policies and programs that already exist
-  Analysis of existing and future
-  Discuss guidelines and existing program
-  Achievements stake holder
-  Develop a framework of green building
-  And implementation

From this concept, it is clear that one of the most important things to consider in implementing green building is the availability of the policy or the regulation. Rational y  facts,  Indonesia is the  view  that  financing  policies in about  the  environment  is essential, cause pollution and natural degradation are just not environmental chal enges that the economic consequences of  environmental  problems requires long-term  response,  because threatens on poverty eradication and achievement of MDGs, actions to address environmental chal enges correlates to  issues  of  equity  and justice. The  other  way,  Indonesia as a part  of developing  countries has limited  options as  they  could not  shift  resources from their development agenda and poverty alleviation to environmentally sound.   
The central government through The Ministry of Finance also provides the facility of import duty incentives, fiscal  and tax  facilities, including  convenience, ease of  licensing  issues to improve competitiveness in order to drive investment in the country. In addition, the government through the Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) to support all services in just one door to make it more easily, including industry and construction services to support the green building practices.
This effort  is commitments to reduce  energy  participate in preparing, providing  and implementing sustainable construction. The regulations to be adjusted based on customs laws on  tariffs for imported  machinery,  goods and raw  materials in order to better provide  legal certainty for taxpayers in the construction services business in meeting tax obligations.

Education and Training in Sustainable Buildings
For  the  spirit  of  sustainability,  we  start  analyze  from the  past  to know  the  factors effecting settlement and sustainable building then, compared with the factors nowadays. Including their building  values,  characteristic and interpretation  of  those  for  today.  If  ready,  the  system  of knowledge can  be  developed  and know-how  to be  transferred  through  different  means  of training  and education, create a  curricula for  each level  of formal  education  and makes some model of information transfer for informal means of education for society. In Indonesia through Green Building Council Indonesia (GBCI), had the objectives to promote the implementation of green building  principles in all  building  sectors  in Indonesia, in designing,  constructing  and
operating schemes and one of the efforts is by developing a rating system “GREENSHIP” and buildings certification  by  Indonesia's own rating  system to achieve a green standard.  On the other  hand,  the  formal  education  of  building  techniques and architecture has a key  role for keeping the traditional values which we may consider to respect.
The education is existed before the building runs regularly. Start from soil, particles, gases, and bio-contaminants  investigation until  entering  the  building.  Their  concentration  is directly proportional to the level  of human activity  in the  building. Also when maintain a quality indoor environment requires special attention to these sources of pol ution, which can affect the health of building occupants and maintenance workers. Poor knowledge can lead the health problems such  as Sick  Building  Syndrome.  We  can  adjust  on  the  building’s heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Moreover creating  environmentally  sound housekeeping procedures, proper selection of cleaning and other chemicals used which stored in building can control  the  contaminants,  also promote  healthful  surroundings and  preserve building’s appearance.  Besides that, the management  principles of education  and  training  can  be  adopt for administrating an environmentally building; the green housekeeping and custodial practices for instance.  The  last,  targeted  building  inspection  containing  basement  crawls space and mechanical system area, et cetera. 
Green Building  Council  Indonesia (GBCI)  as a part  of  education  transformation  agent  have  a huge effect  to encourage the  people including  architectural  students,  practitioner  and government  to change the  mindset  literally  when  saw  the  green principle not  just  only  being labeled or trend with sustainable or green separated-interpretation. We wil  educate the means of a green building not  just one decked  with planted boxes and sky  gardens, however has brought us to a new  level  of  awareness, giving  a new  design perspective when  creating structures and using  processes that  are fully  environmental  responsible and resource-efficient throughout  a building’s life cycle  from  sitting  to design, construction,  operation,  maintenance, renovation and deconstruction.
Indonesia is involved as one of the countries to implement green building principles as soon as possible and wil  disseminate it to the government institution, private, industry, association and university.  Unconsciously,  Indonesia already  has  what  the  people believed  as a climate responsive building, but we do not standardize it. This is strengthened by the problems faced in Indonesia, like the lack of energy (especially electrical), the waste form the building, the lack of water. The answers of that, Indonesia wil  explore the study about the chal enge in implementing green building which focuses on the evaluation. Survey to obtain current issues of the building is also done  and some building  designer  are involved  especial y  the  newly built  building in Indonesia.
In industry,  Indonesia starts  to  fix  the  misleading  between the  companies and consumers  on their  environmental  practices or their  product’s  eco  credentials.  GBC  Indonesia combat  the Green-Washing  seriously,  especially on  some of  the  material  that  claims to contain no dangerous contaminants  like  chlorofluorocarbons  (CFC)  and halon.  As matter of  fact,  it  is no easy to fight, where the consumers are mostly ignorant about the practice and the government lacks the political will to implement regulations.  
In this situation,  the  profession  and the  industry  in  cooperate with GBC  Indonesia already contributed  actively  in green education  through  the  sponsorship of  green  design workshop, competition, networking, initiative and internship opportunities in architecture and another field dealing with sustainability. When the market aren’t stil  doing it, then we invite the consumer had better read the fine print and do a double check before make decision to consume a material and product in a bid to reduce the footprint.

The Adoption of Sustainable Buildings Technologies and Techniques 
In the Declaration of Interdependence for Sustainable Future at Chicago1993, Indonesia stated that  wil   apply  the  development  process  with all  its supporting  sectors,  including  production  of building  materials had to minimize its impact  on the  global  environment  by  using  efficiency methods energy  resources, The  implementation,  we attempted  to face several  chal enge of Sustainable Development  adoption  in the  application of  ecological  buildings,  moreover create the same perception for the consciousness and collective-vision to save our environment. One side,  the  cultural  linkages just only  for  "best-buy"  when consuming  the  product.  Most of consumers wil  buy something with a lot of consideration. Sometimes they just follow the issue which was updated to say "green" or "sustainable" or indeed the motivation for change from the conventional practices towards environmentally practices. On the other side, Indonesia already thinking  about  sustainability  is not  expected  that  only  the  trend favored moment, not just the economic savings efforts, nor an attempt to return backwards and refused to advances in technology, more "Sustainability" occurs not only with the physical manifestation of the building but rather the appreciation and understanding to maintain harmony nature. The options exist in our hands, but eventual y the people’s demand wil  need a more comfortable life that can be put in forward.
In practices, Indonesia had best solution which must be applicable not only for the newly-built buildings,  but  also the  old building  as well.  The  green building  principles  that  already  applied shown benefits consist of lower operating costs, lower energy and water consumption and less waste.  In  more economical  value  when the  construction  was complete,  also provide a lower insurance level,  lower cost to reconfigure  space,  higher  return on  assets,  increased  property value,  enhanced marketing  ability,  reduced liability  from  tenants becoming  sick,  reduced risks as buildings more likely to remain competitive, green productivity, staff retention, reduced tenant turnover and absenteeism. Shortly, it improved organizational culture, morale and wellbeing. 
Some of the adoption of Sustainable Development techniques shown at the creating of Eco-City in Indonesia, Sentul  City, West  Java for instance. They  order to navigate the  developing  and build the  city  more comprehensive and rapid in accordance  to the  today’s demands and the future. Their  development focus on  making  the  green implementation that  matches on  local weather and regional potential to harmony the nature. To have a conception of nature that it can minimize the negative side  effects caused  by  the actual  building  of  its physique.  Cultural  and heritage aspects are  also  serve a consideration  in the  development  of  the  Sentul  City  beside their entertainment attraction and tourism destination.  

Wisma Dharmala (Intiland Tower) - Jakarta
One  of  Paul  Rudolph’s  building,  Wisma Dharmala has been  considered as one of  the  best sustainable building in Jakarta, Indonesia. In addition, the government cited it to be an example of  how  other  buildings should be  design to preserve local  environment.  Its highly  complex geometrical pieces was designed to meet more than just the esthetic merit, but also to gain a better  natural  air  flow  and lighting  in order  to greatly  reduce  the  need  for air  conditioner and artificial  lightings.  Rudolph  said, “Indonesian  traditional  architecture offers a wide  variety of solution to the problem of a hot and humid climate. The unifying element in this rich diversity is the roof (Rudolph, 2009).  It is true, that Indonesian traditional eloquently solved the problems posed by the humid hot climate. 
Wisma Dharmala Sketch Impression

Natural  air  flowed  was coaxed  through  their  structures  by  following  the  simple laws of  hot  air rising, leaving cooler air at the occupant’s level, venture-like openings followed the laws of air dynamic both horizontally and vertically. The passage of air was achieved by raising structures above the  ground,  breezeways,  venture openings in walls and roofs,  controlled  windows openings,  manipulation of  shade,  shadow  and light  modulated in breathtaking  array  of  roofs.
Each has been precisely shaped through centuries of trial and error to fulfil  a precisely defined function, to produce imaginative and beautiful vernacular architecture. The unifying elements in the Indonesian’s rich diversity of vernacular architecture are the roof which in Indonesian  hands has produces some of  the  world’s most  beautiful  buildings.  The Wisma Dharmala office building  takes the  “roof”  adapts it to a high rise,  air  conditioned  office buildings and its supporting functions. Most importantly the building is designed to give a sense of  place  of  being  appropriate to Jakarta.  It  is the antithesis  to the  anonymous air-conditioned box constructed all around the world.

Wisma Dharmala Floor Plan

Wisma Dharmala Facade
Each  floor  of  the  office building  has its own roof-spandrel  with overhang  to protect  the  glass from  the  direct  rays of  the  sun.  There are typical  floors,  which twist  and turn as the building ascend  to  the  top.  This  geometry  allows the  fa├žade  and the  roof’s to form  balconies and terraces for many of the offices floors. The base of the buildings provides a covered entry under courtyard with exterior  steps leading  to a sunken  terrace  surrounded  by  varying  kinds or restaurants.  This courtyard is essentially  a breezeway  shaded by  the  mass of  office  building overhead, so each floor of the courtyard steps back forming a balcony for the offices that floor.
Thus the  space at courtyard expands with each floor  forming  an  inverted  funnel  to catch the natural  daylight.  Overhangs at  each  floor  are  covered with vines making  the  walls of  the courtyard green. The office towers starts some thirty meters above the base, allowing light and air to penetrate all parts of the buildings. The building can be seen as “floating” above its base giving  the  whole lightness which it  would  not  otherwise posses.  The  shortcomings of  this building are not successful in behavioral adaptation between the user and architect who created the  design.  In daily use,  lots of  wasted space occurred  because of  the  typical  plan  form.  For some space, also requires that artificially ventilation increase the burden of energy consumption in buildings. The maintenance is also difficult for the facade because the roof is too steep.

Central Library, University of Indonesia
The central library building at the University of Indonesia, Depok. This facility was built over an area of 2.5 hectares with a total building area of about 30,000 m2.  The eight-floor building is targeted for completion in 2010. This library building was designed resistant to the earthquake and support the sustainable building concept. Some energy needs using renewable sources like solar energy. The library’s architect is Mr.Budiman Hendropurnomo. With the green building concept is the raw material used comes from the country. For example andesite stone or similar stonemarble imported from Cianjur, West Java.
To reduce  the  use of  electricity  in the  room,  the wal   facing  the  lake using  double glazed  to obtain natural daylight glass. Not only have that, the waste watered from the building so it can be recycled to water the plants used in the building environment. "Apart from the UI concern for the environment, the government established new rules that the building should be specialized in green building.

3D Concept Central Library, University of Indonesia

“To create a beautiful building that is easy, but making it environmentally friendly hard,” said the architect.  The  library  building  when viewed  from afar  as the  inscription  in the  mountains because some roof  cover was designed  by  using  green roof  system  that integrates with the surrounding  site. regulations to  direct  the  user's behavior to  be  compatible with the  built environment  is realized  by  not  allowed  the  use of  excessive plastic waste in the  building, smoke-free, rich in reforestation, save electricity, paper and water. Another thing of concern is the  restrictions on  Accessibility for motor  vehicles near the  building,  but  provides access for pedestrians and bicycle users to pollution levels that come into the building can be muted.

Indonesia’s Ecohome, ATMI IDC - Holcim Indonesia, Surakarta
PT.  Holcim  Indonesia Tbk.  (Holcim  Indonesia),  in collaboration  with a number  of  business partners and the  Academy  of  Mechanical  Engineering  Industry  (ATMI)  Solo, inaugurated  the International  Building  Development  Center (IDC)  ATMI  in Solo, Central  Java. The  concept  of eco-home, which became the basic concept of building an IDC is a new innovation, and part of the  Holcim  Indonesia contribution  to sustainable development  (sustainable development)  in Indonesia, which later  eco-home concept  wil   be  applied  to other  constructions,  particularly public housing. 
Two-storey  building  was built  in six  months and up  beautiful  in Adi  Sucipto Street,  Solo. Its construction also use building materials produced in house solution outlet, so it is more efficient from a variety of things:  reducing the use of woods, faster processing and lack of the use of discarded materials.  As  an  initiative partner  of  Holcim  Indonesia,  Home Solutions (outlet) is integrated in the provision of building materials, access to financing, construction methods and design consultation. With the integrated system, the development and use of this building have been implemented: 
Ecohome – ATMI IDC, Holcim Indonesia, Surakarta, 2010
First, Water management. At The Eco-home, some of the interlink water management features the  catchment  of rainwater into the groundwater  tank,  proper  grey  and black-water treatment, purification and drink  water  treatment,  the  use  of  advanced  water  application like grease trap and relevant low rate water appliances which leads into a water efficiency up to 46%, 42% self sufficient water supply and reduction of storm water. Second, it  is the  efficient  energy  management.  Those begin with site understanding  and optimization of  passive design solution,  whereby  the  building  responds  to the  existing sun orientation, induces airflow and specifies finishes that absorbs less heat. Cooling in a building takes up to 70% of its total energy consumed during its operation. Insulation and air-tightness of air  conditioning  becomes very important  key  factors to reduce  the  energy  consumption, matched with the installation of smart appliances. 
Third, Waste management which domestic waste is a prominent in household development. The Eco-home optimizes its domestic waste management through both changing the mindset of the occupants and also providing the system to allow easier management. The occupant needs to understand the importance of classifying waste which wil  be channeled to recycling industry in Surakarta. With the development of new technology, organic waste can be also recycled to reduce its environmental impact.
And the last is renewable energy sources with the implementation of integrated systems since a-well  performed  home  needs to be built  with quality  building  resources  like material  that  wil sustain and ensure the building’s durability. It is also important to select building materials that can renewable and have minimum impacts to the environment and enhance efficient installation methods.
Building System
Facade ATMI IDC Surakarta
ATMI-IDC  building  became one of  the  building  which wil   be  a green campus in the  campus environmental  perspective. Holcim  Indonesia partnership and building  owners and business partners such as Sika, Mortar Utama, Toto, Bioseptic, Panasonic,  Wavin, Broco which provide  material  support  or completeness  of  the  environmental  perspective also makes ATMI IDC  Building  as environmentally  friendly  buildings and The  Ecohome that will  be  an  example. Another  economic aspect  that  became the  hal marks  of  ecohome  is that all  the  products are localy produced.

Green Building Council Indonesia’s Rating System, “GREENSHIP”
Green  Building  Ratings are  tools used  to benchmark the  environmental  capability  or performance  of  different  buildings.  They  typically  use  a credit  system  to  rate a wide range of green attributes a building might have, but will only assess attributes where the science behind the  assessment  is robust  enough and the  assessment  is achievable at  a realistic cost. They balance usability and accuracy, providing an extensive, but not comprehensive assessment of a building. The assessment of building material is a good example of where rating tools do not yet have the capacity to make a full impact assessment and address only a selection of achievable impact  areas.  In  time if  available, we need  the  science and  standards for Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) wil  be advanced enough so that databases wil  provide robust the data on the impacts of different materials over their full life cycle and designer will be able to model the total impact of a building’s materials.
Green Building Council Indonesia, since November 2009 has set up a team, led by the Director of  Technology  and Research,  to develop  its  own rating  system.  Since  the  start  of  the development of the rating system, the team has looked into no less than 8 rating systems that are currently use around the world. The rating tools will be launched in June 2010. GBCI named its rating system Greenship. In February, the Greenship Associates training has been held to introduce  the  concept  and  draft  of  the  rating  tools for  GBCI  members.  In the  future,  Green Building  Council  Indonesia as a not-for-profit  bodies which charged with driving  the transformation of  markets with regard to green  buildings wil   promote the  implementation  of green building  principles in all  building  sectors  in Indonesia, in designing,  constructing  and operating schemes, one of the effort is by developing a rating system and buildings certification by  Indonesia's own rating  system  to achieve a green standard.  They  are set  up  under  the auspices of the World Green Building Council (WGBC) which works to set quality standards and to share knowledge around the globe.
