Green Stars for Sustainability

We’re thrilled to share some exciting news about our building and our commitment to creating a greener future. Sustainability starts at home here at FIL, and thanks to a successful collaboration with Redefine Properties, we’ve achieved a prestigious 4-star rating certified by the Green Building Council of South Africa.

Earning this certification was no small feat, especially given our classification as an industrial site. Despite the inherent challenges, our dedication to efficient operations, energy management, and machinery optimisation has paid off. This rating reflects our relentless pursuit of sustainability in every aspect of our operations.

What’s even more gratifying is that amidst the project debrief, we discovered that out of 50 assessed sites, our building has been ranked number 1! This recognition further solidifies our commitment to leading the change towards a greener future.

Green Star certification is an internationally recognised symbol of excellence in sustainable building design, construction, and operation. Developed by the Green Building Council, the Green Star certification tools serve as an objective measure of environmental leadership in the property industry, not just locally but across Africa.

At FIL, we embrace the Green Star tools that focus on industrial sites like ours. These tools, comprising nine different categories, encompass a wide range of environmental and sustainability criteria throughout the building’s lifecycle.

From design to construction and ongoing operation, our team diligently incorporates these principles to create a better-built environment for both people and the planet.

We’re proud of our achievements but recognise that our journey towards sustainability is ongoing and we will continue to innovate and implement green initiatives to create a brighter, more sustainable future.
