Redefine receives three net-zero certifications in Gauteng

Redefine's Rosebank Link.

Three of Redefine’s properties in Gauteng have received Net Zero Carbon Level 2: Building & Occupant Emissions (Measured) certifications from the Green Building Council of SA (GBCSA).

The properties – 2 Pybys and 90 Rivonia in Sandton and Rosebank Link in Rosebank – were all recognised for improved energy efficiencies equal to or above industry averages, making Redefine the first SA REIT to receive this target at an operational level, through a combination of energy efficiency-enhancing projects and limited carbon offsets traded through a voluntary carbon offsetting programme.

Being certified as net zero provides an objective confirmation to our key stakeholders that our certified buildings have been benchmarked against global best practice efficiency standards,” says Anelisa Keke, chief sustainability officer at Redefine.

Going forward, the buildings will need to be recertified every three years.
