EDGE: An online platform, a green building standard and a certification system for more than 130 countries
To help companies mainstream green buildings in emerging markets, IFC has developed EDGE, an online platform (www.EDGEBUILDINGS.com) that allows design teams to estimate the efficiency of a building by using practical solutions. The aim is to set a metrics-driven definition of what constitutes a green building, reward property developers for building green, increase regulatory pull, and promote direct investment. 1.7 million m2 of floor space has been voluntarily EDGE-certified globally.
