Some Lebanese companies and organizations have already passed the green light. Here are some examples:

  • Filtered power waste by changing terrace lighting to colorful led lights, which reduced the power bill by 25% since installed
  • Applied the same on the entire interior lighting as well, saving an additional 20%, which means a savings of approximately 45% comparing to last year's bill
  • Air quality, as measured, improved by 30% since planting 24 fruit trees around the entire 250 square meter terrace

  • Strive to improve environmental footprint and enhance services to protect the environment
  • Pursue projects where green standards are implemented 
  • Adapted environmentally-friendly technologies in new head office in the Sequoia building on Sami Solh Avenue in Beirut
  • Upgraded all procedures to reduce paperwork and unnecessary distribution of documents
  • Migrated the majority of massive data storage to the cloud to meet their needs worldwide, drastically reducing on-premise servers and their corresponding electrical loads
  • Jointly executed an eco-village in Mount Lebanon Governorate, Chouf District with sister company Eco-Bkerzay
  • Aforementioned eco-friendly conservation village with traditional guest houses was first project of its kind to meet the green international standard and get a BREEAM Certificate
  • The final score was 57.4%, equivalent to a rating of “very good”, one of the highest in Lebanon under the more stringent BREEAM 2016 requirements

  • Investment in a luxury resort project with three guiding themes: luxury, ‘green’ and water in an aim to preserve the beauty and rich vegetation of the site amid the deforestation of Lebanon
