Today, after implementing various sustainable interventions, Vodacom officially launched its newly refurbished Century City building in Cape Town.

Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA) will be reducing their physical office footprint from two regional offices into one, resulting in GBCSA operations being located in Cape Town.

JSE listed Balwin Properties, a developer that cares about environmentally responsible building practices and the delivery of high-quality apartments to its valued clients, today announced a major achievement in its ongoing drive to fight climate change through the mainstreaming of green lifestyle developments.

“Climate change is real,” Minister Mboweni’s budget speech statement is a fact. But now what? We need to be smart, diligent and brave to reach the low carbon future the National Development Plan plotted out for us, says Dorah Modise, CEO Green Building Council South Africa.

According to the latest findings of the World Green Building Trends 2018 Smart Market Report, the emergent green building movement has indicated an increase in the percentage of industry respondents who expect to build their projects green – a jump from 27% in 2018 to almost half by 2021 (47%).

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.
