The Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA) today announced the launch of the locally applicable version of the Green Star – Communities rating tool in South Africa.

Young environmental visionaries from the University of Cape Town took first place in the Growthpoint Greenovate Awards for the second year running.

Today marks the beginning of the second week of the 22nd UN Framework for Convention on Climate Change Conference of Parties (COP22) taking place in Marrakech, Morocco.

Growthpoint Properties’ Greenfield Industrial Park in Cape Town has been awarded South Africa’s first ever Green Star SA rating for an industrial property.

The Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA) is entering its 10th year of operation on a high note with a milestone 200 buildings rated with Green Star SA certifications. 

The impact of buildings on the environment is astounding, with the built environment currently accounting for 25% of the world’s water usage and 60% of its electricity. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Collaborating for a better, greener built environment, Nedbank Corporate and Investment Banking (NCIB) has again joined forces with the Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA) as the principal sponsor of the Green Building Convention 2016.

After five trailblazing years at the helm of the Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA), CEO Brian Wilkinson has announced his early retirement.

Green building is gaining rapid momentum in Africa with office buildings in Rwanda and Namibia both receiving 6-Star Green Star ratings, certified by the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA).

Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA) has announced that its ninth Green Building Convention will also be its first to take place in Johannesburg.
