EDGE Discovery Workshop: Green Retail – January 30 – Global
January 30, 2019 @ 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM EST- Free
Attend this online webinar to learn more about the benefits of EDGE certification for retail. An innovation of IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, EDGE helps facilities along the entire retail supply chain to build and brand green, from industrial and warehouse facilities to shopping centers, department stores, big box retail, and food stores.
The EDGE software helps users easily identify the most cost-effective ways to design their retail buildings green. Its powerful financial calculator estimates the return on investment, showing the utility savings for a project. EDGE also provides impact reporting on a project and portfolio basis. Green financing such as green bonds can be raised with EDGE certification serving as an important third-party instrument to measure the lower risk of qualifying projects.
During the webinar, research will be shared on the return on investment data collected for 30 countries for retail establishments, industrial buildings, and warehouses. There will also be a live demonstration of the EDGE software which shows within minutes how a few strategic measures can positively impact the utility profile of your retail building.
The webinar will be led by Rusmir Musić, the Global Business Development Lead for EDGE, with a case study presented by Mitsidi, the technical consultants for EDGE-certified Obramax projects in Brazil (see the BMB 001 Cambuci and BMB 002 Praia Grande project studies).
