Branding can further an organization's effort to communicate their investments in environmental and social leadership. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a third-party certification program and is an internationally accepted standard for the design, construction, and performance of green buildings and developments.
Sample projects for environment consulting and ecotourism development in Egypt & Middle East:
Environmental Management Support and LEED Certification—Designopolis, 6th of October City
Client: Bonyan Development and Trade
Designopolis is an interior design retail center located on the Cairo-Alexandria Desert Highway. The developer was seeking LEED certification to celebrate and showcase their commitment to environment and social responsibility. To this end, EDG provided oversight for the design and construction so as to prepare the center for its LEED rating. It also provided environmental support to architects and project engineers on the urban water cycle, energy efficiency optimization, and solid waste management. EDG also prepared a Technical Memorandum that would demonstrate the project's LEED compliance.
