Why Choose EDGE?

Because the overall value of EDGE outweighs the extra costs of design and certification, making a clear case for profitability.

Award Recognition

Developers are winning awards for their projects that are certified with EDGE.

Brand Visibility

With plans for a city within a city in Lagos, Eko Atlantic has defined the direction of its brand as certifiably green, attracting global attention for its efforts.

Customer Satisfaction

Prior to purchase, homeowners fully understood the benefits of an EDGE-certified home at Greenox, an iconic residential tower in Istanbul built by Aycan-Feres.

Higher Tenant Capacity

In Accra, monthly utility bills can surpass the price of rent. By positioning itself as EDGE certified, Atlantic Tower attracts multi-national clients while maintaining capacity rates of nearly 100%.

Higher Commercial Rates

ArthaLand’s Century Pacific Tower, which has been triple-certified green including with EDGE Zero Carbon, charges among the highest rates for office space in all of the Philippines because of the building’s sustainability credentials.

Incentives from Banks & Governments

In Colombia, 3G Constructores saved more than $82,000 on a green construction loan from Bancolombia for its EDGE-certified Ambar Infinity project.

Increased Market Share

With its portfolio commitment to EDGE, Balwin Properties is selling a record number of homes in South Africa. The developer recently partnered with a local bank, Absa, on an eco-home loan.

Leaner Investment in Marketing

EDGE certification gave Mexican property developer DCM the opportunity to create commercial alliances to advertise its ELEMENTS project for free, and obtain discounts in media with a focus on sustainability.

Portfolio Opportunity

In the Philippines, Imperial Homes is certifying all of its solar-powered social housing projects with EDGE going forward, bringing more than 700 homes to the real estate market annually.x

Product Differentiation

EDGE factors large in the vision of Peru’s LatAm Logistic Properties, enabling the developer to quantify their value proposition to customers. Their warehouses are the first of their kind in frontier markets.

Quicker Sales Cycles

Capital House sold their EDGE-certified homes in Ho Chi Minh City 20 percent faster than average, which reduced overall costs for the developer by an estimated 3 percent. On the other side of the world, Constructora Bolivar sold out its 127 Living project in a record 45 days. And in Mexico, Casas Krea went from selling 25-30 homes per month on average for its Villas del Fresno project to 49, despite the pandemic.

Re-channeled Operational Savings

Operational savings will pay for the entire cost of construction of the Mother and Baby Unit in Kumasi, Ghana within 20 years. Built by Africa Building Partners, the hospital is certified with EDGE.

Response to Market Demand

Out of 168 units at Revolución 757 in Mexico City, four units were sold because customers insisted on buying a green home. FICADE, the developer, expects this demand to grow exponentially in the future.

Value Transfer

With smart meters installed in each of the homes they finance and manage, International Housing Solutions can prove to South African families that they will save one month of rent each year.
