Green building benefits

Why green building?

Lower operating costs
Save money

Research reveals that Green Star SA buildings enjoy energy savings of between 25% and 50% compared to buildings designed to SANS 204 standards. The payback periods of energy and water saving practices are becoming much shorter as a result of increasing utility costs and the wider availability of more affordable green building technology.

Higher returns on assets
ROI

Extensive studies in the United States and Australia have shown rental rates in green buildings to be approximately 6% and 5% higher, respectively.

Increased Property Value
Higher resale value

Decreased operating costs, lease premiums and more competitive, less risky, future-proofed buildings contribute to the value of green buildings. This has been empirically proven in the United States and Australia with 11% and 12% valuation premiums, respectively.

Responsible investing
Investment

Investment in green building is an integral part of the worldwide trend to more responsible, sustainable and ethical investing.

Educating
Know your footprint

The world is becoming increasingly aware of the need for sustainability. Are you?

Enhanced marketability
Increased market value

Green building creates a differentiated product in the market, which is viewed as technologically advanced and environmentally and socially responsible. These attributes are positively linked to the company brand and image of the owner and/or the tenant.

Reduced liability and risk
Low risk

Green buildings are future-proofed against increases in utility costs, potential energy and water supply problems, tightening legislation, carbon taxes and the impact of mandatory energy efficiency disclosure, as well as costly retrofits or even obsolescence.

Retaining clients
Government and corporate

The Department of Public Works’ planned ‘Green Building Framework’ is likely to include certain green building requirements for government accommodation. This will increasingly apply to large multi-national tenants too.

Increased productivity
Productivity

Improved internal environment quality (IEQ) from increased ventilation, temperature and lighting control, and the use of natural light.

Combat climate change
For a better tomorrow

Green building practices can have a significant impact on combating climate change and help to create truly sustainable communities.
