Environmental Sustainability Electricity

From the maximum use of natural light to the incorporation of energy efficient lighting and emission minimising climate control, the CTICC is designed to be green at heart.

Green by Design

Environmental sustainability was integral to the design of both CTICC 1 and CTICC 2 buildings, and the CTICC continually reinvests in its environmental sustainability initiatives.

An ongoing retrofitting programme has resulted in the installation of sensor operated escalators, LED lights, and soft-touch taps, as well as dual flush toilets and a closed climate control system that is actively managed to avoid unnecessary usage.

At the time it was built, CTICC 1 achieved a 77.1% compliance with South African Energy and Demand Efficiency Standards. While the innovative design of CTICC 2 earned a 4-star Green Star rating.

A new Building Management System, combined with other energy alternatives, has resulted in a steady decline in electricity consumption with sub-metering systems continuing to be rolled out, driving further energy savings.

Energy Efficiency

The CTICC has committed to a baseline reduction in energy annually. Over the years we have implemented a number of initiatives, which have resulted in steady electricity consumption savings.

These include: energy retrofits, the installation of a new boiler, cleaning of the air-conditioning coils, replacement of all downlights with LEDs, and the replacement of all T8 fluorescent lights in one of the parking lots with T5s.

Ongoing staff awareness and the inclusion of energy efficiency practices in standard operating procedures have helped to further reduce overall energy consumption.

Electricity consumption has a significant impact on the carbon footprint of an event, and at the CTICC we aim to be energy efficient and always encourage our clients to follow suit.
