EDGE Advanced buildings are zero-carbon ready structures that are at least 40% more energy efficient than others in the market

Agility, a supply chain services, infrastructure and innovation company, announced that a warehouse at its Agility Logistics Park complex in Riyadh is the first building in Saudi Arabia to receive EDGE Advanced certification as a green building.

EDGE (Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies) is the global standard for energy-efficient buildings, a certification system overseen by the International Finance Corp. (IFC), an arm of the World Bank.

Basic certification requires a minimum projected reduction of 20% energy use, water use and “embodied energy” in materials as benchmarked against a standard local building.

Agility received EDGE Advanced certification for a warehouse at its 870,000 SQM Riyadh park. EDGE Advanced buildings are zero-carbon ready structures that are at least 40% more energy efficient than others in the market.
