The same forward thinking and initiative that drove Baron Edmond de Rothschild must be turned to sensitive and sophisticated consideration of the interactions between man and nature. Lord Rothschild at opening of the Visitors Pavilion, Ramat Hanadiv, 2008

Environment & Green Building Yad Hanadiv’s Environment Programme is committed to improving the health and resilience of Israel’s natural and urban ecosystems. The Foundation has established the Environment and Health Fund, supported biodiversity initiatives, sustainable use of agricultural land, and is pursuing a strategy to curb degradation of Israel’s Mediterranean Exclusive Economic Zone. It has also sought to raise awareness and provide leadership in the area of sustainable Green Building. This has included mounting the 2009 Jerusalem Seminar in Architecture on Green Design, the construction of the Visitors Pavilion at Ramat Hanadiv Memorial Gardens and Nature Park (2008) and the Foundation offices at 4 George Washington Street in Jerusalem (2012). The new National Library Building designed by the Swiss firm of Herzog & de Meuron and funded by Yad Hanadiv, will conform to international standards of Green Building.

The offices comprise the third, fourth and fifth floors of a building located in the heart of the Jerusalem. It is part of an ensemble of buildings adjacent to the historic YMCA tower designed in 1933 by Arthur Loomis Harmon – the architect of New York's Empire State Building. The office roof offers a panoramic view of the city and its surroundings. The offices received Silver LEED Certification of the US Green Building Council.


WHAT IS GREEN BUILDING? Green Building, sometimes called Sustainable Building, is a method of environmentally responsible and resource efficient construction that takes into consideration the entire life cycle of the building from siting, to design, construction, operation, maintenance and demolition. The aim is to minimize the use of resources, waste and damage to the environment, and to protect the health and enhance productivity of occupants. Ideally, the extra cost involved can be offset over the long run by savings in energy and water consumption.
