Joia das Dunas incorporates the following:
  • zero-carbon
    All residences use geothermal energy from bore holes, which provide under floor cooling and heating, hot water and heating in pools.

  • zero-waste
    Organic waste will be composted. Non-biodegradable materials will be sorted and recycled where possible.

  • sustainable water
    Rainwater will be harvested and reserved on a natural lake for use on public gardens. Water reduction programs will be implemented in all properties.

  • local and sustainable building materials
    Most build materials will be locally sourced and bio degradable. Rubble from a pig farm demolished onsite was recycled for use as hard core in road.
