EDGE certification services in the Philippines are provided exclusively by the Philippine Green Building Initiative. Certify your projects with EDGE and become part of the worldwide trend.
An innovation of the IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, EDGE (“Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies”) is an online platform, a green building standard and a certification system for over 140 countries. The EDGE application helps to determine the most cost-effective options for designing green within a local climate context. EDGE can be used for buildings of all vintages, including new construction, existing buildings and major retrofits.
A project that reaches the EDGE standard of 20 percent less energy use, 20 percent less water use, and 20 percent less embodied energy in materials compared to a base case building can be independently certified. The value of EDGE certification is a promotional advantage, as customers benefit from lower utility bills.
EDGE is part of a holistic strategy to steer construction in rapidly urbanizing economies onto a more low-carbon path. It’s an example of IFC’s commitment to creating markets that are competitive, sustainable, inclusive and resilient.
