With increased pressures from both governments and big brand clients, manufacturers in emerging markets are turning to green design. EDGE certification offers the light industry sector an opportunity to lower running costs, predict and report on carbon emissions, and demonstrate leadership.
By measuring the performance of a green building against a base case, EDGE provides a single snapshot of energy and water demand. Among the many advantages of EDGE, you can design a better building envelope, choose more efficient heating and cooling systems, and recycle energy and wastewater. EDGE does not include energy or water efficiency measures for manufacturing equipment or the industrial process, however this can be managed outside of EDGE for even greater improvements.
