What Is Sustainable Real Estate?

Sustainable real estate, also known as green real estate or eco-friendly real estate, is a philosophy and practice of developing and managing properties in an environmentally responsible manner. It involves using sustainable building materials and design principles to reduce the environmental impact of buildings throughout their entire life cycle.

Why Is Sustainable Real Estate Important?

The construction and operation of buildings have a significant impact on the environment. According to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), more than 30% of global energy consumption comes from buildings, which also contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and consume a significant amount of raw materials.


Sustainable real estate aims to reduce this impact by implementing eco-friendly practices such as energy-efficient designs, renewable energy sources, and sustainable water management systems. This benefits the environment while delivering economic advantages to property owners in terms of lower utility costs and increased property value.

The Need for Eco-Friendly Development In Northern Cyprus

Sustainable real estate is important to practice everywhere, but its value is particularly pronounced in Northern Cyprus. This island country is home to some of the world's most beautiful coastlines and likewise maintains an extremely large and diverse local ecosystem. Home developers can't simply set up shop here like they would in New Jersey - there's an extra onus of responsibility to be taken in terms of design, construction, and ongoing residency.


This can look like many things. For instance, one might design houses with solar panel roofs or seek out ways to incorporate greenery into the structure of their buildings. Planting trees and integrating sustainable materials can be more expensive at first but saves money down the line through reduced energy costs and a longer lifespan for things like windows, floors, and roofing tiles.


In addition to the environmental benefits of sustainable real estate practices, there are also economic advantages for both developers and residents in Northern Cyprus. With eco-friendly features like solar panels and energy-efficient appliances becoming increasingly popular among homebuyers worldwide, investing in these elements can increase property value.

Adding Flair to Interiors While Being Green

Developers can also get creative in the interior design of apartments or houses. Locally sourced wood can be used for furniture and flooring, adding a touch of natural warmth to the space. Recycled materials can also be incorporated into various design elements such as countertops or backsplashes.


There's something to be said about the value of space and light. Working together, these two natural elements have the power to transform any room into a welcoming and inviting space. The key to maintaining sustainability with this lies in energy efficiency. Large windows are great, but only if they are properly sealed and equipped with the right insulation to prevent heat loss during colder months.


Fixtures like blinds and shades also play a big role in preserving energy and enhancing the overall design of a room.

Community-Wide Considerations

The environmental footprint of a development project stretches beyond individual homes. Community spaces such as parks, playgrounds, and public buildings should also be designed in a way that respects and preserves the local ecosystem. One example of this is using native plants in landscaping rather than importing non-native species that can disrupt the natural balance.


Quality craftsmanship, durable materials, and proper maintenance further reduce waste from constant replacements and repairs. Prioritizing sustainable infrastructure in community planning allows people to coexist in gorgeous natural environments, or even add to them rather than consuming and degrading natural resources.

MEDITERRA: The Epitome of Eco-Friendly Development

If you're wondering what a real-world example of sustainable real estate might look like, just check out MEDITERRA - one of the most green initiatives Northern Cyprus has ever seen. It's located in Kyrenia, Alsancak, and is set for completion in 2025.


A large catalog of private residences and villas gives buyers unparalleled choice over the look, feel, and size of their space, while Kibris Developments' strict sustainable development guidelines ensure eco-friendliness at every level.

MEDITERRA is designed to be energy efficient, making the most of natural sunlight and incorporating renewable energy sources wherever possible.


Every home's interior shares characteristic elements of the outside world; warm and neutral tones, clean fittings, and beautiful natural materials. The shaded terraces and open-air courtyards serve as beautiful venues from which Cyprus' glorious 300 days of sunshine can be enjoyed.

 Eco-friendly development in Northern Cyprus is crucial not only to preserving the natural beauty of the island but also to sustaining its delicate ecosystem. With a growing population and increasing demand for housing, it's imperative that developers consider the impact their projects will have on the environment. That's exactly what we do here at Kibris Developments - and what we've done since 1985. Learn more about this latest project and others by exploring the rest of our website.
