Promoting green buildings, improving building’s energy efficiency and investing in green certifications
“We consider investment in energy-efficient properties a business advantage and a part of our broader preparatory actions for nZEB. It also allows us to give back to local communities, our investors, our tenants, our partners and the people who work in or live nearby our buildings:
- Local communities benefit from reduced carbon emissions generated from the use of the property.
- Our tenants benefit from more efficient energy consumption, positively impacting the profitability of their operations.
- The people working or visiting our buildings benefit from improved conditions, thanks to temperature control and better airflow and quality (which can also lead to enhanced productivity).
- Our partners benefit by assisting us to develop, maintain and operate a green portfolio according to the respective specifications of each property.”.
