ACLEDA Institute of Business

ACLEDA Institute of Business, located in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, has received final EDGE certification from thinkstep-SGS.

ACLEDA Institute of Business


For years, ACLEDA Bank recruited the largest number of college graduates in Cambodia. As the demand for skilled professionals began to outpace the supply of graduates, ACLEDA Bank decided to build their own business school to address the shortage of higher education institutions. Today, the ACLEDA Institute of Business offers Associate, Bachelor and Master-degree levels for over 3,000 students the fields of business, banking and finance. The school also provides training to over 3,000 additional participants. Students at the ACLEDA Institute of Business study subjects such as micro small and medium enterprise (MSME) lending, financial planning, loan management and more.

ACLEDA Bank also believes that investing in education must be done responsibly. The green campus, which consists of three education buildings, administrative offices, a library and a dormitory, are resource-efficient, allowing for a reduced carbon footprint and lower operational costs. The campus uses less energy and water with features like energy-efficient air-conditioning and a black water treatment recycling system. Construction materials such as cored bricks for walls also reduce the embodied energy in materials.

ACLEDA Bank was first established as a locally owned, non-profit organization that helped rural entrepreneurs gain financing. The bank now employs over 12,000 employees and has more than 250 branches that provide financing to mostly microfinance borrowers and MSMEs. From lending to entrepreneurs to educating its country’s future professionals, ACLEDA Bank is dedicated to the sustainable development of Cambodia. The ACLEDA Institute of Business has received final EDGE certification from thinkstep-SGS.

Escuela Infantil Puerto Madero

Escuela Infantil Puerto Madero, located in Buenos Aires, Argentina, has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.

Escuela Infantil Puerto Madero


As the first public preschool for children in the Puerto Madero neighborhood, Escuela Infantil Puerto Madero provides children with a playful, green space to learn. In addition to standard subjects, students in the preschool are also taught about the need to protect and care for the environment. Developed by Corporación Antiguo Puerto Madero (CPM), a state-run corporation owned in equal parts by the national government of Argentina and the City of Buenos Aires, the school represents the city’s commitment to its sustainable development.

Situated along the waterfront of the city, Puerto Madero once existed as a largely abandoned former railroad zone with decaying buildings. Today, the neighborhood has undergone a rapid transformation as part of Buenos Aires’ urban renewal project. Puerto Madero now draws both tourists and locals as new businesses, homes, public parks and a revitalized waterfront have made the neighborhood a destination.

Built in tandem with the growing population of the Puerto Madero neighborhood, the Escuela Infantil Puerto Madero school conserves natural resources and minimizes carbon emissions. The school is expected to reduce its energy use by nearly 60% with energy-saving lighting and natural ventilation for the classrooms, which will dramatically improve thermal comfort for the students, providing a better learning environment. Other features such as water-efficient landscaping conserve water, while construction materials such as steel sheets on steel rafters for the roof reduce the embodied energy in materials. These pragmatic design measures were implemented with no incremental costs or payback period for CPM and will ultimately result in utility savings.

The Escuela Infantil Puerto Madero has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.
