We walk the talk

Emcon is extremely proud to announce that we now officially occupy the "greenest" building in Namibia, as our Windhoek office has achieved a coveted 6-Star Green Star SA EBP rating. A 6-Star rating is the highest possible and is considered to signify “World Leadership” in the field. Emcon operates with energy produced from a grid-connected solar PV system, a small part of an internal process to register our offices to achieve the first Green Star (Existing Building) rating in Namibia.
