The solution is EDGE, a green building certification system for emerging markets. EDGE is a quick, easy and inexpensive way for builders to optimize their designs, leading to a more investment-worthy and marketable product.
EDGE shows how committing to a few energy and water-saving options at the design stage improves the operational performance of a building at little or no cost. As the numbers are brought to the forefront to tell the story, EDGE reveals what works and what doesn’t to build smart and green.
EDGE helps developers to address the mass market that was previously ignored. By focusing on technical aspects that yield results, developers can build an ever-growing portfolio of innovation that attracts new customers and boosts brand equity.
