Edificio Matriz Banco ProCredit Ecuador

Edificio Matriz Banco ProCredit Ecuador


Banco ProCredit is an international, commercial bank with a development focus, specializing in socially responsible banking.

Starting in mid-2019, the company embarked on the remodeling of Edificio Matriz, ProCredit Ecuador’s head office in Quito, with the goal of mitigating its environmental impact. The project has achieved EDGE Advanced certification by making use of resource-efficient technologies such as reflective paint for external walls, water-efficient plumbing fixtures, energy-saving lightbulbs and light controls for public spaces, smart meters and a photovoltaics system covering 26% of total energy use. The extensive use of existing walls further reduced the resource impact of construction, particularly on energy embodied in materials, lowering the carbon footprint of the project.
