EDGE is a green building certification system that empowers the South African real estate market to build sustainably. An innovation of IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, EDGE makes it faster, easier and more affordable than ever before to build and brand green. The Green Building Council of South Africa can help you to certify your project and quickly increase its marketability.
South Africa is facing an energy and water crisis. Electricity costs continue to mount, and Cape Town narrowly escaped disaster as it faced down a severe water shortage that made news headlines around the world. To take this challenge head on, EDGE shows the opportunity: to construct green buildings for little extra cost while saving customers money.
Now is the time to capitalize on the value of green commercial and residential buildings by promoting the benefits through certification. With EDGE, you can stay at the forefront of the green building trend.
