IFC Webinar Series Session 1: Green and Resilient Tools – EDGE and the Building Resilience Index
In this session, you will learn about IFC’s innovations for green and resilient affordable housing. EDGE is a green building standard and a certification system that empowers building professionals to quickly and easily determine the most cost-effective ways to build green. During the live demo of the EDGE platform, you will see how the built-in financial calculator makes connections between technical measures and profitability, and how the marketing toolkit helps developers with faster sales through a differentiated offer.
The Building Resilience Index is a web-based hazard mapping and resilience assessment framework for the building sector. It is designed to facilitate access to location-specific hazard information, provide resilience measures to mitigate applicable risks, and improve transparency for disclosing a building’s resilience information between sector stakeholders. Both instruments can be used to build an investment program and to launch new financial products such as green bonds.
