As of December 2020, we are proud to announce that Sintali-SGS is open for business in India.
We will be hosting a webinar on the 19th of January to introduce ourselves and how we implement EDGE certifications at scale. Register today and reserve your spot.
If you would like to learn more now, we have put together a quick overview of our offer and who we are.
Sintali and SGS are two companies that collaborate to act as an EDGE global certification provider for IFC. Operating as a one-stop shop for EDGE certification and audit services, Sintali-SGS streamlines the EDGE process and delivers a high-quality and efficient service for clients.
Contracting and gathering fees from separate entities can be a time-consuming process. With our approach, clients know that Sintali will always be the certifier and SGS will always be the auditor on projects.
Clients interact with only one point of contact through the entire EDGE process and receive a single contract with all EDGE-related costs included – the EDGE registration, EDGE certification and the EDGE audit fees. This makes it easy for clients to proceed quickly and efficiently.
We also recognise the importance of consultancy support during the EDGE process. As part of the offer, a fixed scope of EDGE expert support is included within all contracts at no additional cost to clients.
Our pricing model is based on the audit and certification work required, not the square meters of floor area, which enables projects with large floor areas to be certified within a reasonable price range.
For projects fitting the “standard project” definition, the price is always the same. Standard projects are defined as individual commercial buildings with one use type (for example a hospital or a warehouse), or residential projects with up to 3 typologies and 150 units. Regardless of the size or location of standard projects, the total price for the registration, certification, design audit, site audit is always $10,700 excluding VAT.
If the project does not fit into this standard category, we collect some information about the project to estimate the required audit and certification work to be performed and prepare the best quote for our one-stop-shop service package.
For clients interested in certifying multiple properties with EDGE, we prepare a portfolio pricing that takes account of the efficiency savings due to the scale of portfolio certification. With this proven approach, we are passing significant savings onto clients, allowing clients to certify thousands of residential units, or multiple properties, at an affordable price.

We have worked onhundreds of projects around the world across every category, from a residential portfolio in the Philippines to warehouses in Kenya and Thailand to affordable housing in Turkey to a hospital in Ghana to a university campus in Cambodia.
The one-stop shop approach works for all projects, but we specialise in helping clients evaluate and certify their entire building stock and pipeline with EDGE. Through the development of innovative processes, we can help clients certify all their buildings and start transitioning them to zero carbon.
