briq.mx: the First Crowdfunding Platform in Mexico to Launch a Project Certified by EDGE

Although briq.mx had already presented sustainable opportunities on its platform, this is the first with a formal green certification. The project is located at 225 Dr. Gonzalez Street, in the Santa Maria la Ribera neighborhood, an area with high added value, and will have 17 apartments with abundant common and private outdoor areas, of which 12 are already pre-sold.

briq.mx becomes the first crowdfunding platform in the country to share an EDGE (Excellence In Design For Greater Efficiencies) certified project. When choosing what to invest in, the factors to decide can have different weights, and being a sustainable real estate development can be an important reason because it implies contributing to a better and more responsible future for everyone.

EDGE is an innovation of the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, which seeks to incorporate more green buildings and help combat climate change, measuring water, energy, and energy used for the processing of materials used in construction, as well as the reduction in CO2 emissions in the operation.

Although briq.mx had already presented sustainable opportunities on its platform, this is the first with a formal green certification

The project is located at 225 Dr. Gonzalez Street, in the Santa Maria la Ribera neighborhood, an area with high added value, and will have 17 apartments with abundant common and private outdoor areas, of which 12 are already pre-sold.

Grupo SOMMA, the developer of the Dr. Gonzalez 225 project, is a company that was founded 2 years ago with the interest of developing housing in high value-added areas, taking into account the interests of those who invest and achieving the continuous development of housing units at prices below the average, without sacrificing their quality.

briq.mx has already taken the banner of sustainability with other initiatives, such as adhering to the United Nations Global Compact and working on its internal policies, to get closer every day to compliance with the Ten Principles and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in order to contribute from its branch, to build a better future for all people.

In this regard, Alberto Padilla Luengas, CEO of the crowdfunding platform mentioned: “We are committed to sustainability. We understand that environmental balance and economic growth must go hand in hand. For this reason, since last year we have created a space for our team to share what sustainable actions they carry out on a daily basis, in such a way that it serves as an example and encourages the repetition of good practices.”

With this in mind, briq.mx, through a group of investors, contacted a consultant specialized in real estate green certifications and began to provide information to the developers they work with to encourage them to certify their projects. There was an immediate response and today they have on their platform the first project with an ecological certificate that includes savings in water, energy, and the energy embedded in the materials used in the construction.

“We hope it will be the first of many,” said Alberto Padilla, who also pointed out that today it is almost unthinkable that real estate constructions are not developed under these parameters, in order to reduce the environmental impact we have as an industry.

Finally, briq.mx will continue to bring this option closer to the developers it works with in order to continue growing the list of allies, not only with the objective of building a platform that presents a variety of options but also allows its investors to diversify their portfolio, knowing that it is of great importance to build responsibly and with a view to the future, from all angles.
