Greening existing public building stock in Rwanda is a project initiated by the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) in 2020 with support from partners including Ministry of Environment (MoE), Ministry of Infrastructure (MININFRA) and Rwanda Housing Authority (RHA) to improve the performance of existing public building stock in Rwanda based on green building parameters.
The project is built on the Rwanda Green Building Minimum Compliance System which is part of Rwanda Building Code 2019 and aims to provide pathways to green existing public buildings in Rwanda.

The purpose of this report on ‘Rapid Building Performance Assessment of Nyarugenge Pension Plaza (NPP), Kigali, Rwanda’ is to provide the building owners and facility manager of NPP an opportunity to understand how their building is performing on key resource efficiency parameters (energy, water and waste) by benchmarking against similar facilities within comparable  context, and suggest a list of recommendations for improvement and the associated cost savings with an aim to convert the existing building into a green building.

This is the first of a series of technical assessment reports that will be produced by GGGI Rwanda on existing public building.
