EDGE (Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies) Green Energy Certification

EDGE (Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies) is an internationally recognised green building certification system, which certifies buildings that achieve a minimum of a 20% reduction in energy and water usage and embodied energy of the building materials used compared to traditional construction.

Green Building Certification

The increasing demand for sustainability, in relation to products and processes, is leading to rapid changes in policies, laws, and regulations around the world, to encourage more sustainable projects.

A number of rating systems, therefore, exist to assess the environmental impacts of buildings, constructions, infrastructure, urban-scale projects, and community projects.

EDGE is a Green Building Certification that is designed to assist projects to be more sustainable by providing frameworks with a set of criteria that cover several aspects of a project’s environmental impact.

Our Team Can Help You Achieve Green Building Status for Your Building

About EDGE

EDGE offers market leaders the opportunity to gain a competitive advantage by differentiating their products and adding value to their customers.

EDGE next-generation green building certification is now appearing in more than 170 countries worldwide. Edge certification comes with complimentary user-friendly software with localised costs and climate data for site-specific results.

Compared to BREEAM and LEED, Edge is designed based on scalability and can easily be used to assess large quantities of homes and businesses at a cheaper rate.
