In a move to encourage the popularity and adoption of green buildings, some banks are starting their own initiatives in preferential financing for certified properties.
CIMB is one such bank, offering preferential rates for participating residential properties certified by GBI, GreenRe, LEED, or BCA Green Mark. It may be worthwhile to check if the property you’re eyeing is on the list, and if not, to consider one of these green property options where you would be entitled to enjoy the lower financing.
Buildings are responsible for 30% of global annual greenhouse gas emissions and roughly 40% of the world’s energy consumption. Even if this doesn’t strike at your conscience, green buildings save energy and water and are kinder to human health and wellbeing, all of which translates into potential savings and bring about quality of life.
