The Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA) will host the 11th Annual Green Building Convention with several local and international heavyweights weighing in on the global race to achieve net zero carbon, water, waste and ecology buildings. 

Green Star Certified office buildings outperform similar uncertified buildings by 3.8%.

Cape Town, South Africa, 1 August 2018 – Women’s Property Network (WPN) hosted the Western Cape region for the fourth annual South African Women in Property Awards (SAWIPA), in conjunction with Airports Company South Africa (ACSA).

With green building becoming a crucial part of developing smarter and more sustainable African cities, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) is pleased to announce the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA) as a key participant and sponsor of RICS Summit Africa 2018, set for Sandton this month.

Time is running out to reform the buildings and construction sector’s energy performance and keep the Paris Agreement on track, with the energy intensity per square metre of buildings needing to improve 30 per cent by 2030, according to new research released in Paris on Monday.

Further evidence of the public sector’s commitment to sustainability is the 4 Star Green Star SA Office Design v1.1 certification that the KZN Department of Education: Ugu District Office has received from the Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA).

Young environmental game-changes from the University of Cape Town (UCT) took first place in the Greenovate Awards for the third year running.

South Africa’s top rated Green Star buildings and top green building professionals were announced at the Green Building Convention, held at Century City Conference Centre in Cape Town this past week.

If private- and public-sector land investment in our cities concentrates on keeping the haves away from the have-nots, urban sprawl will be encouraged, Professor Edgar Pieterse, told Green Building Convention 2017 delegates at Century City in Cape Town last week.

MSCI Inc. (NYSE: MSCI) recently released the IPD South Africa Annual Green Property Index.
