By focusing on the "Three Ps" - Planet, People, and Profit - the IGBC aims to lessen the impact of climate change while also promoting economic growth and social well-being. Ultimately, the IGBC Kolkata Chapter, under Mohta's leadership, is dedicated to making Kolkata and India a greener and more sustainable place through the widespread adoption of green building practices.
