Balwin is deepening its commitment to sustainable business and property development with the launch of the Balwin Green Awards.
The group already has a solid track record of continuous improvement to embed this goal into its very fabric: from its strategic objectives through its operations and results. Early 2022, we adopted an extensive environmental, social and governance (ESG) policy that clearly captures our intention and sets out a roadmap to Building Better Futures:
As South Africa’s largest sectional title developer, we are now encouraging our employees, contractors, and vendors to join us in Building Wealth for first-time home buyers, Building Inclusion for local development and Building Smart for a low carbon future by signing up for the Balwin Green Awards.
Together, we can deliver homes that support sustainable, healthy living, and drive the property and construction industry towards better practices.
With Balwin Properties, the future is green.
Balwin welcomes and embraces the increasing importance of ESG. Over the past year, we have adopted a group-wide ESG policy, developed an implementation plan, commenced tracking our carbon footprint, and made significant strides in green building, incorporating environmental practices into our developments. All of our new developments are built according to global environmental standards to obtain Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiency (EDGE) Advanced certification for all apartments and Six-Star Green ratings from the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA) for its lifestyle centres.
