Pune: 18th November 2022: IIFL HFL, India’s fastest growing digital first home finance company, launched the 13th chapter of Kutumb in Pune. Kutumb is IIFL HFL’s flagship programme to provide green and sustainable housing to the economically weaker section and lower income groups. This is the seventh chapter that IIFL HFL has launched in association with the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

Kutumb endeavours to promote green, sustainable, future-ready and affordable housing by actively collaborating and consulting with developers, architects and rating agencies. The association explores understanding of green designs, rating and finance choices to allow people from middle and lower income groups access to environmentally-friendly dwellings. It is part of a broader attempt to promote green, affordable, and sustainable housing in India. In the past three years, this is the second time IIFL HFL is organising Kutumb in Pune.

IIFL HFL organised Kutumb on November 18th, 2022 titledExpansion of Green Affordable Housingin Pune on the occasion of the chapter’s launch. The event focused on addressing subjects such as population demography, urbanisation, and the need for green, affordable, and climate-resilient housing, particularly in the light of Maharashtra’s vernacular architecture and Pune’s changing housing regulations.

The participants and speakers dwelled on the challenges of uneven distribution of urbanisation and lack of consistent supply of housing projects for the low-income community. Irrespective of the demand, flooding, and an increase in the run-off volumes because of the increased build-up area were also addressed during the event.

The event was graced by many dignitaries, including Monu Ratra (ED & CEO, IIFL Home Finance Ltd), Jaiprakash Shroff (Chairman, IGBC Pune Chapter & Managing Director & Chairman, Shroff Group), Ashok B. Lall (Principal, Ashok B. Lall Architects, New Delhi), Priya Sunder (Senior Investment Officer, Asian Development Bank), Neha Kumar (India Programme Manager, Climate Bonds Initiative), Poorva Keskar (Director, VK:e environmental) and Rupesh Agarwal (MD, Sara Group).

Speaking at the event, Monu Ratra (ED and CEO, IIFL HFL) said, “Maharashtra is one of the pioneers in including green and sustainable housing as a component of climate action. By financing and facilitating the creation of green dwellings for the economically weaker sections, Kutumb seeks to make these sections the beneficiaries of a broader climate action movement. The 13th chapter of Kutumb in Pune will carry the programme’s mission forward by bringing in developers, policymakers, and all other relevant institutions to deliberate on the need for green housing and to find ways to overcome the challenges in popularising it.”

Maharashtra is one of the top states with the highest number of green structures. The Government of Maharashtra has been a pioneer in climate action. It released its first Climate Action Plan (MCAP) in March 2022 where it pledged to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. The Pune region is at the forefront of the state’s mission and boasts of 107 green initiatives.

The event was also live streamed on YouTube and later available as recording on the same platform. Click here for the event link: https://youtu.be/3q2kJur4SJY
