Climate change is affecting every country on every continent, disrupting national economies and affecting lives. Combating climate change and creating sustainability is becoming a business imperative, combined with the lowering of operational and living costs. In support of this, all of our townhouses are energy efficient green homes, designed to be both environmentally friendly and convenient. Every unit is enrolled with the Green Building Council of South Africa and will be issued with a Green Edge certificate on completion. Not all developments are Green Edge certified – this is a recent initiative by the World Bank and the International Finance Corporation, administered by the Green Building Council of South Africa.
To qualify for Green Edge certification, developments are required to reduce energy and water consumption by at least 20%, as well as utilise building materials that have low environmental impact.
The SSI Group has exceeded these specifications by an almost 50% energy reduction through the in-house development of TWO specialised systems designed to reduce both operational and utility costs. This state-of-the-art technology enables a higher selling price and higher rental income, and supports an environmentally-friendly, energy-efficient new way of living.
