Kenya Green Building Society

The KGBS is an independent, non-profit, non-political, member-based organization formed to lead the transformation of the built environment in Kenya toward environmentally sustainable buildings, promoting a healthy and efficient built environment.

Our mission is to advocate, educate and certify green buildings in Kenya to achieve an environmentally, socially, and economically progressive built environment.

The vision of KGBS is to transform the construction industry and built environment to a sustainable future, promoting a healthy and sustainable environment for the nation. Kenyans spend 90% of their time in buildings and use the built environment to travel from one
building to another daily. Buildings and construction, together account for 36% of global final energy use and 39% of energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions when upstream power generation is included. Thus, green buildings can set the world on a trajectory to meet the global climate ambitions set forth in the Paris Agreement.

Building green is an urgent response to climate action, health and well being, and resource circularity.

Event Details

Accredited by IFC, EDGE Experts bring their skills, insights and thorough understanding of the EDGE software to instill confidence that a project is certifiably green. Their persuasiveness paves the way for a client to imagine and realize an entirely green portfolio.

At the individual level, becoming an EDGE Expert results in greater knowledge, career growth and an opportunity to promote your work. At the firm level, credentialing your team helps to upskill your practice while attracting and retaining fresh talent.

A sole practitioner, in-house staff or a member of an engineering or architecture practice can all become EDGE Experts. They are an integral force that binds the design process together while providing outstanding value to clients.

EDGE Experts Online Training is offered by Sintali - SGS and The Kenya Green Building Society. You must successfully complete EDGE Experts training to become eligible to take the EDGE Exam. Once you've completed your training, IFC will email an EDGE Exam Eligibility ID to you within two weeks, so you can register for the exam.
