Government building demonstrates environmental protection in practice


The Department of Environmental Affairs in Pretoria is “not just another good looking block of offices in town, but a performing green building with specific targets on energy efficiency, and water efficiency – an industry first", explains Minister Edna Molewa.


The so-called “Environment House” is the first government building to receive the highest rating in the Green Star certification programme. Another stellar accomplishment is the Green Building Council of South Africa’s  (GBCSA) highest score for a large commercial office space of this magnitude. The organisation spearheads the transformation of the country’s property industry to ensure buildings are ecologically sustainable.
