Can green walls contribute to GRIHA criteria? (If yes under which criteria would they contribute and how many points can be achieved by using them?)
Green walls are not directly evaluated in any criterion. However, the effect on thermal comfort inside the space due to the green wall is reflected in a reduction in EPI and getting more points. Innovation is one of the criteria of the rating which rewards exceptional strategies, features focusing on sustainability which has been adopted in addition to the 30 criteria. If a project can showcase the significant contribution/impact the green wall is making environmentally, then they can claim 1 point under innovation.
