In the context of climate change, the demand for green office buildings is
increasing, especially from companies with formal sustainability goals.
Currently, the offer for green office spaces in Nairobi is relatively low, both for
shell-and-core buildings and co-shared offices. Tenants seldom have the
possibility to adapt their rented spaces to integrate sustainable systems and
Most companies’ main focus is to provide a maximum number of spaces with
natural light and ventilation, in order to minimise the use of energy for lighting
and air conditioning. Very few of them have the possibility to implement stronger
sustainability measures such as reducing the carbon footprint of their offices during construction.
