"Growthpoint is a leader in the green building movement....it has taken ambitious steps towards greening it’s portfolio..." -Dorah Modise, CEO, Green Building Council of South Africa
The spaces we inhabit have an impact on our mental, physical and cognitivewell-being and also impact the external environment. So, it makes perfect business sense to create spaces that are environmentally conscious and healthy to be in.
Sustainability is embedded throughout our business. Growthpoint is a platinum founding member of the Green Building Council South Africa
and part of the Green Building Leadership Network. We design new buildings to meet high sustainability standards and the offices we develop for Growthpoint are all designed to have at least a 4 Green Star SA rating, or higher. Green and sustainable developments have a reduced impact on the environment and promote responsible development. Green buildings offer reduced operating expenses, are more resource efficient, allow for future-proofing, provide a higher rate of return and promote occupant wellness and productivity. Green building certifications offer compelling proof that buildings are performing optimally.With our industry-leading sustainability performance, we have achieved over 100 Green Star SA ratings and have the largest portfolio of green rated properties in South Africa.
The core drive of a workplace strategy is to realign people and place. We design high-performance workspaces that foster collaboration and increase productivity and profitability for our clients.
The Greenbox solution
We’ve gone beyond the traditional ‘white-box’ approach to new space by developing an innovative, value-added Greenbox solution for clients who want to undertake a Green Star interiors certification. The service is created with a combination of sustainability, productivity and economics and guides you with leading green workspace practices to assist in the green certification of the building’s interiors
Strategic land holdings
We acquire property to suit the needs of our clients. We use our deep knowledge of the South African property industry to identify future growth zones, which are positioned to become highly desirable for development opportunities. To secure prominent positions in these areas for our clients, we maintain a portfolio of prime undeveloped sites situated in key nodes, in all major South African metropolitan areas.
