Description Rapid urbanization in India is causing major environmental issues in the building sector. Increased demand for residential housing units leads to increased use of energy, resources, and raw materials, resulting in an increase in carbon footprint. All metropolitan cities are already dealing with environmental challenges including changing weather patterns and ecological devastation. The answer rests in long-term development that employs environmentally friendly materials and technology. Sustainable development is defined as meeting current demands without jeopardizing future generations' ability to fulfil their own requirements. This article elaborates on the notion of sustainable development, which has gained prominence in the recent two decades. This progress is possible because to the use of environmentally friendly construction materials and technologies. The notion acknowledges that human civilization is an inherent component of the natural world, and that nature must be conserved and perpetuated in order for the human society to survive. Sustainable development expresses this concept via designs that embody conservation principles and urges us to use such principles in our daily lives. A different approach to traditional design is required for sustainable development. Every material and technology decision must be evaluated for its influence on natural and cultural resources in the local, regional, and global habitats.
