Property Point, a Growthpoint initiative, is growing green innovation by linking entrepreneurs with South Africa’s green building leaders at the 2015 Green Building Convention in Cape Town this week.

Growthpoint Properties has targeted boosting its solar energy generation capacity to over 6MWp by mid-2016 to become one of the largest generators of rooftop solar power in South Africa.

Solid Green Consulting has successfully facilitated 20 Green Star SA certifications with the Menlyn Maine Pegasus building marking this milestone.

The greening of Joburg's public spaces has become a trademark of the JDA's public environment upgrades. The agency has also taken the lead in a number of park upgrade and creation projects across the city.

While the ‘green revolution’ in residential property, unlike in the commercial sector, is still in its infancy, rapid strides in technology and increasing awareness of the potential cost savings and reduced environmental impact are making good sense to more and more home owners – and home buyers, says Pam Golding Properties.

Redefine Properties has pioneered new benchmarks for the green property sector by developing, in conjunction with the Green Building Council of SA (GBCSA), a Green Star SA Custom Industrial Rating tool for industrial developments.

Rabie Property Group’s R1billion mixed use Century City Square development is on track for completion by February 2016.

Atholl Towers in Sandton, Once complete, the building will achieve 4-Star Green Star SA – Office v1 Design certification from the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA).

 The Atholl Towers office development in Johannesburg, South Africa, was recently awarded a 5-Star Green Star SA Rating by the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA).

The Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA) will be joining Green Building Councils across the globe to celebrate World Green Building Week, and has invited all South Africans to take part in the celebration by getting involved in making their homes and workspaces greener.
