The Green Building Council of South Africa

The GBCSA is an independent, non-profit, membership-based organisation that was formed in 2007 by leaders from all sectors of the commercial property industry. We are a full member of the World Green Building Council and the official certification body of buildings under the Green Star SA Rating System. We aim to ensure that all buildings are built and operated in an environmentally sustainable way so that all South African's work and live in healthy, effective and productive environments.

What is a green building?

A green building is a building which is energy efficient, resource efficient and environmentally responsible - it incorporates design, construction and operational practices that significantly reduce or eliminate the negative impact of development on the environment and occupants.
