Our work addresses human, community and ecological needs through eco-education, advocacy, research and development and on-the-ground work community engagements. CGBMT involves all stakeholders to ensure long-term tranformational benefits.
In 2004, there was a severe dearth of two things: data and skilling. There were no people available in the industry to build/advocate for sustainable technologies such as rainwater harvesting, waste management, water recycling, etc. nor people on the ground to do the work. Also, when sustainability was brought up and people were asked to practice sustainable living, they didn’t know how to do so or where to get the data for it. So, we started with workshops on sustainability, going to colleges, and government organizations for talks, print media going wherever an opportunity was provided to spread the word. Around then, a Tsunami happened, and looking at the destruction and suffering of humankind, that was a pivotal moment where our founder Neelam Manjunath decided to go all in and also move into on-ground skilling in addition to existing advocacy methods.

The Centre for Green Building Materials and Technology was established in 2004 as a trust under the Societies Act, under section 12A of the Income Tax Act 1961, to bring Sustainable building technologies into the mainstream building sector. Operating as a sister organization of Manasaram Architects and supported by Aditi Constructions & Aditigreenscapes, the trust was started as a response to the dearth of awareness, trained personnel, and sufficient data in the field of Sustainable building materials and technologies.

Since its inception, CGBMT has worked towards the promotion of Environment-friendly solutions for a Sustainable way of living through various fields of research and development locally, nationally, and internationally.
