As a sustainable construction, Tera Tower has green features that promotes healthy lifestyle. The tower features green attributes such as double glazed glass windows, which allows natural light into the building while blocking out noise and heat, as well as decreases the use of air conditioning (AC) and office lighting. It is also equipped with a rooftop garden that does not only collect and recycle rain water, but also consists of non-invasive plants to help reduce the heat island effect.

The tower applies LED lighting installation in several areas, water saving fixtures, and energy-saving AC systems called the VRF (variable refrigerant flow) which does not harm the ozone layer. The construction materials used for the building are recycled, sourced from waste and substantial local materials to lessen the carbon footprint.
