ESD specializes in green environmental support and professional consulting for green building and infrastructure projects across all planning levels – from the outline and national infrastructure to detailed planning and performance management of structures and neighborhoods, roads and railways.

What Makes Us Leaders?

We were here first!

The leaders of ESD are the pioneers and founders of the field of architectural consulting for green building in Israel. We drew our inspiration from the positive change brought on by international standards such as the American LEED and British BREAM, while reducing the impact of the construction industry on the environment, improving residential environmental quality and energy-saving.

Since then, we have accumulated vast experience in all areas of environmental protection, infrastructure and advanced architectural consulting for green building.

As a leading firm in the field, we are successfully and proudly responsible for the qualification of hundreds of projects, under various designations, for the Israeli Green Standard 5281, including the first certified Israeli residential building.

We have and remain actively supporting the planning and building of the county’s largest infrastructure projects including Route 6, the Jerusalem tram, Tel Aviv tram lines, etc. alongside many other outlined plans and urban building schematics around the country.

Facing the Future

We started about a decade ago as pioneers in the field, understanding that drastic steps must also be taken in Israel to improve the Earth and preserve the environment we live in.

Nowadays, as before, we are led by innovative views. We make sure to stay updated and to maintain our superiority when it comes to green building. We are constantly researching and developing new fields of sustainability and implementing them into our projects, such as glass towers influencing urban space, energy efficiency in existing structures (retrofitting), sustainable energy surveys for complexes and neighborhoods, and zero-energy buildings.

In the environmental field, we promote air quality monitoring for national projects, occupational safety and hygiene in factories and offices, international sustainability standards for infrastructure, and more.

Thanks to our broad activity with many authorities around the country, we enjoy direct and continued acquaintance with decision-makers on all levels, which helps us advance bureaucratic processes.

Our employees come from various disciplines and consult on hundreds of projects in both the public and private sectors. Among our clients are local authorities, the Israel Electric Company, Mekorot, El-Al, the Israeli Parliament, government offices and global private companies.

We are proud to offer our clients a wide framework, including in-house consultation for all fields of sustainability, tightly rooted in the daily reality of the Israeli construction industry, in order to simplify and shorten the authorization processes and save considerably on planning and execution costs.
