The design of Nile Business City by the Nile Real Estate Development Company came as an attractive and distinguished mall, as it bears international standards and is the first building with LEED Certification specifications in the capital, which is an international certificate with environmentally friendly specifications to help improve the production of workers in the building and preserve the environment at the same time.
And timed to coincide with the start of the 27th session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, or COP27, which will be held in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, from November 6-18, 2022, where art and creativity will meet environmental issues.
Due to rapid development, changing lifestyles, and new technologies, energy demand is constantly increasing, day by day, with few remaining energy resources. Globally, buildings are responsible for at least 40% of energy use. In addition, construction activities contribute an estimated 50% of global air pollution, 42% of greenhouse gases, 50% of water pollution, 48% of all solid waste, and 50% of all chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in the environment. This prompted research into the use of environmentally friendly building materials.
The biggest benefit of installing solar panels lies in saving on electricity costs, and if the solar panels are large enough, you may be able to produce enough electricity to supply your entire home. You can use the solar energy calculator from the Energy Saving Trust,)whicht will give you an approximate percentage of what you can save.
Solar panels contribute to reducing carbon emissions, and according to the Energy Saving Trust, a typical home solar PV system can reduce about 1.3 to 1.6 tonnes of carbon per year, depending on where you live.
Rationalizing water consumption or water conservation includes all policies, strategies, and activities to sustainably manage the natural resources of fresh water, protect the Earth's hydrosphere, and meet current and future human demand. Population, population growth, family size, and affluence affect the amount of water used. Factors such as climate change have increased pressure on natural water resources, especially in manufacturing and agricultural irrigation.  Many countries have already implemented policies aimed at water conservation, with great success.
Decomposition of waste leads to the leakage of the toxins it contains into the water sources, whether ground or surface, and pollutes the soil in a way that affects the food cycle, in addition to the pollution of drinking water, and thus poses dangers to the safety of people. In addition, the waste emits gases that pollute the atmosphere, posing many dangers to humans, plants, and other living creatures. It affects breathing. This is in addition to the emission of unpleasant odors. It also harms the eyes due to the heaps of waste that overwhelm the landscape and distort the aesthetic value that people are keen on.
Low-E glass is an environmentally friendly building material, as it has high thermal insulation properties, which leads to energy savings. In short, it is glass that has been coated with a low-E coating during or after the manufacturing process.
Glass is a versatile material that has been used in the building industry since ancient times. Traditionally, it was only used on windows and doors to get natural sunlight during the day. With the advancement of technology, glass is now widely used in facades, interior walls, balustrades, stair railings, balconies, ceilings, and so on. Due to its durability, glass is commonly used in the glazing of the facades of commercial and large buildings.
