We invite you to share your materials data sheets of various green products, materials, and services. KGBS technical team will assess and list your product in the directory database.

This directory will be shared extensively across the globe and locally by KGBS and is available to the public both on the website and as a downloadable app free of charge. It will be updated at regular intervals.

The Jenga Green Library is a directory of Green Building Materials and Services developed by Kenya Green Building Society (KGBS) in partnership with FSD Kenya. It aspires to be a one-stop-shop for displaying the entire supply chain of sustainable building materials and services, including suppliers, dealers, retailers, service providers, and sustainable building consultants. It will assist developers, buyers, homeowners and urban planners to efficiently identify green products and service providers who drive towards sustainability within the built environment.

1. Affordability
When it comes to affordability, the Bathrooms & Plumbing category is currently underrepresented. The category's assessment methodology considers resource consumption (Flow rates) as referenced in the assessment methodology.
The flow rate of the baseline showers, which cost between KES 2,000 and KES 5,000, is 9L/min, which is 3L/min more than the efficient cutoff point of 6L/min.

2. Availability of Data Sheets
The lack of data sheets for products whose technical data is critical in establishing their efficiency is a significant barrier.
The categories most affected by this are:
a) Bathrooms & Plumbing – Most taps being sold in hardwares do not have technical data sheets
b) Locally produced products
