Given SUMAC’s extensive experience in the Latin American market, we realized that many of the available green building certifications were not always targeted or able to be applied to our Latin American realities. As a result of this awakening, in SUMAC, we decided to develop the “SUMAC Sustainability Certificate”.
The CSS encapsulates the common denominators of the most solicited green building certifications at a local level that encourage energy savings, sustainable construction practices, as well as access to special lines of credit for developers and buyers. With CSS SUMAC aims to build sustainability for everyone.
A sustainable commercial space has the benefit, apart from savings in energy and water consumption, a higher level of customer permanence, due to improvements in internal comfort, which results in higher sales.
Commercial projects such as offices, retail, indoor commercials, restaurants and shopping centers are the ones that fit for the application of the SUMAC Sustainable Certificate for commercials.
Given the high consumption of resources in the operation of industrial plants, savings in energy and water consumption are of primary interest to them. Likewise, these plants generate a quantity of waste that can be used on site or in other places. For this type of buildings there is the SUMAC Sustainable Certificate for industries.
