When consultants, architects, engineers and designers try to find the right Green solutions or products for their project, they often don't know where to start or are limited to the few choices that they know of. For them, researching the proper solutions is a time-consuming exercise that diverts them away from their core activities.
Similarly, manufacturers and suppliers of Green Building Products and Solutions find their marketing budgets extremely inflated due to their participation in many events, expos, and activities to promote their Green solutions to their target audience located in the small and segmented markets of the MENA region, which includes 17 countries each with it's own set of business and cultural complexities.
THE SOLUTION by e-EcoSolutions
Unlike many Online directories, e-GreenPages is not a simple listing directory of companies and their addresses or key activities. It is a valuable resource consolidating and producing a rich set of information per company including:
- General company addresses including links to its main web-site
- Summary description of the company and its Green products
- Company's international Green Label Partnerships or Certifications
- Pictures of relevant Green Product and Solutions
- A MENA distributor locator to find the nearest distributor or regional office
- A set of valuable free-to-download data files sorted as:
- "GREEN Specs" to get support material for the LEED® Credits or Green features.
- "Product Resources' such as Product Literature (brochures, catalogs, etc) or Technical Sheets (Tables, CAD files, BIM, etc)
Green products listed in e-GreenPages can be found by three search options:
Search by LEED® credit.
If you are aiming to certify your project as per any of the five current LEED® 2009 certifications produced by the U.S. Green Building Council, you can easily search by LEED® credit and find which products can help you to achieve this particular LEED® credit.
Your search result will highlight all Companies and their respective Products that meet your search criteria, in addition to a table showing the maximum contribution points of this product in each of the seven sustainability categories of the searched LEED® 2009 certification.
In this search option, we guarantee that all potential points are backed by supplier material explaining how each credit can be met in relation to its intent. We do no guarantee or take any responsibility for the accuracy of the supplier material and claims.
Products that can be found in the search by LEED® credit can also be found under the search by Product Category and the search by Keyword. Hence, having the highest search power.
Search by Product Category.
Search by Product Category if you want to find all available products in a specific Green Construction Category and locate their distributors or partners in the MENA region.
Your search result will highlight all Companies and respective Products that meet your search criteria, in addition to a table showing their Green Features relevance over ten categories:
- RC - Recycled Content
- MR - Materials Reuse
- CW - Certified Wood
- RR - Rapidly Renewable Material
- VOC - Low Emissions & VOCs
- RE - Renewable Energy
- REU - Reduce Energy use
- RWU - Reduce Water Use

Each Green Feature is also defined by a mouseover balloon.
Products that can be found in the search by Product Category can also be found under the search by Keyword.
Search by keyword.

This is the most generally used method to locate Green products, independently from their Green features or LEED® credits.

We split all Green Building products into two main categories: Indoor and Outdoor building material amd solutions, with single-leveled subcategories. We did not use the US CSI-MasterFormat™ due to its added complexities and low relevance to the MENA region for the time-being.
