A Future Vision

An Empowered Community

Our vision is to build an empowered community of built environment professionals and providers equipped with the knowledge, skills and resources needed to create a sustainable built environment in South Africa and Africa.

As the world finds itself forced into a new era of increased connectivity and remote engagements, the demand for affordable online education is accelerating.

Built Environment Professionals are seeking new and innovative ways to keep themselves relevant and earn credentials, while responding to the accelerated call to play a part in solving the challenges that threaten a sustainable future.

GreenED aims to help the Built Environment community meet that need.

We are a provider of online education courses that are typically 1-hour in duration for professional CPD credit. Our goal is to shift the current practice of face-to-face CPD seminar training to an on-demand model.

Deliver best-in-class online education appropriate to the African context and build powerful synergistic relationships with professionals and providers within the Built Environment so that together, we can make the necessary advances needed to drive the green building movement.

After all, the sustainability of our world is our collective responsibility.

We offer an online and on-demand collection of modular courses on topics specific to green buildings and design. Our courses give professionals working in the Built Environment an engaging and convenient way to earn their CPD credits in their own time and place.


Delivered entirely online and self-paced, via webinars and
on-demand modules.


Participants earn CPD points on completion of each course & gain access to a recommended supplier database.


Designed and delivered by a team of expert consultants
with over 20 years experience
in Sustainable Design and Green Building.
