The Company is committed to setting a benchmark for real estate development, with a strong emphasis on quality and social responsibility.

"The achievement of the Golden Gate project in obtaining the EDGE Advanced Preliminary Certificate is the culmination of a sustainability journey we began over 15 years ago with the construction of the headquarters building of FAB in New Cairo," stated Eng. Tarek El-Gamal, Chairman of REDCON Properties. "EDGE Certificate underscores our unwavering commitment to continue this sustainability journey by implementing effective practices in all our projects, aiming to reduce energy consumption and preserve natural resources. This direction not only reflects our commitment to environmental protection but also aims to enhance our position as a leading company in the real estate industry. Our certification achievement reflects our continuous efforts to uphold sustainability standards in every stage of our project development, setting us apart in this field."

Ahmed Abdullah, Vice Chairman of REDCON Properties, remarked: "Green architecture and sustainable projects represent the future of the real estate market in Egypt and are significant attractions for investments, especially given the global trend towards green economy. Obtaining this certification further strengthens our position as a leading company in this sector. We take pride in the achievements of this project and eagerly anticipate presenting more projects that adhere to sustainability and innovation standards. We are extremely proud to achieve this milestone for our clients. Owning an environmentally friendly certified building in Golden Gate not only demonstrates our commitment to sustainability but also provides a healthy and energy-efficient environment, reducing operating costs and achieving outstanding economic returns for our project partners."

REDCON Properties relies on the use of environmentally friendly building materials, high-efficiency mechanical, electrical, ventilation, and lighting systems, as well as an advanced waste management system to reduce its carbon footprint.

Furthermore, REDCON Properties is committed to recycling a portion of construction waste during the implementation phase, having exceeded 1500 tons of recycled waste during 2023 and the first quarter of the current year. These efforts are aimed at supporting environmental conservation and achieving sustainable development.
