The milestone has marked the mall as one among the only two LEED-Gold certified shopping centres in Egypt.
The 120,000m2 retail and entertainment centre opened to public in September 2019.
The sustainability milestone included 14.6% energy savings; 89% waste recycling via a detailed waste management program; 47% reduction of water-use through low flow fixtures and wastewater management; and 4.7% offset of total energy consumed by utilising renewable energy generated on-site.
In addition, CCC ensured the procurement and use of environmentally preferable materials; 30.9% of the total building materials were manufactured using recycled materials and 48.5% were sourced locally.
CCC’s past green building projects include the Abu Dhabi International Airport Midfield Terminal Building and the Palestinian Museum, among other projects.
