Paladin Realty Invited by IFC to be an “EDGE Champion” – Recognized as a Leader in Sustainable Housing in Latin America
Paladin Realty Partners has been invited by the International Finance Corporation (“IFC”) to be an EDGE Champion in recognition of Paladin’s more than two decades of leadership in accelerating the adoption of international green building best practices for housing throughout Latin America.
The IFC’s Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies (EDGE) program was established to help developers design, build, and certify projects that achieve a minimum of 20% savings in water, energy, and embodied energy in materials. Paladin has been working with the EDGE program since 2018 when it certified its first low-income project in the greater metropolitan area of Mexico City, “Villas del Fresno”, a 1,639-unit project which is currently the largest EDGE-certified affordable housing project in the Western Hemisphere. The project will save an estimated 1,300 tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere each year as well as saving 28% in energy, 24% in water and a savings of 74% in embodied energy in materials compared to conventional building.READ MORE
