Located in the city of Grand-Saconnex, Green Village is the first real estate project in Geneva (and one of three pilot projects in Switzerland) to follow the One Planet Living ® principles. The sustainability action plan is based on ten principles, which requires a real commitment from WCC, Implenia and the City of Grand-Saconnex, that is why each building in the Green Village will be named in honor of one of the major international agreements on sustainable development.
The environmental vision for the project focuses on maximizing green space. In developing the site, a particular attention has been paid to energy efficiency and environmental issues by incorporating the very latest developments in this field into the design.
To comply with the Canton of Geneva’s Very High Energy Performance standards, the buildings will be highly energy-efficient and will be fueled by 100 percent renewable energy, from geothermal sensors, solar panels and networked energy (micro-grid), resulting in a zero-carbon footprint.
Saving energy and using it responsibly is a priority at Green Village.
Our materials do not carry any toxicity risk for the environment of the neighborhood and its occupants.
Thanks to low consumption faucets, Green Village users limit their consumption.
