Create Value by Differentiating Your Project.
Certify green with EDGE and take a metrics-driven approach to your sustainability strategy.
EDGE brings international prestige to your project at the design stage. Whether you’re a homebuilder, commercial owner, or are building to sell, capitalize on the value of certification before your project has been built. Here are a few of the benefits.
There are three choices for EDGE certification. Use the EDGE App to reach at least 20% savings in water and materials, then choose your target for energy savings to match one of the following levels of aspiration:
Level 1: EDGE Certified
Enter your project in the EDGE App and earn a minimum of 20% savings across the three resource categories, and your project can be certified.
Level 2: EDGE Advanced
Set your project apart even further by earning EDGE Advanced, with recognition reflected on project studies, certificates, award submissions and more.
Level 3: Zero Carbon
Join the global initiative for new buildings to be zero carbon by 2030 and all buildings to be zero carbon by 2050.
For additional information, access our How to Apply for EDGE Zero Carbon Certification Guide.
The first step is to register your project. Receive a preliminary EDGE certificate at the design stage, then repeat the process at the post-construction stage to earn final EDGE certification. Existing buildings can go straight to final certification.
Registering is easy. Design your project in the EDGE App, then go to your dashboard. There you can choose a certifier, view their pricing, and register your project.
Once your project is registered, upload your documentation onto the EDGE App. When you’re ready, go to your dashboard and initiate the certification workflow.
