PILLAR 1 | Bricks
The first pillar of Wereldhave's sustainability framework is to reduce the environmental impact of our buildings. We try to reduce our impact on the environment by optimising energy efficiency, the use of sustainable materials and the promotion of public transport.
1.Increasing energy efficiency by 30% between 2013 and 2020.
Using smart meters and building management systems, Wereldhave is able to monitor its energy consumption on a 24/7 basis.
2.Promoting renewable energy. Water and waste plan for the centres.
A new goal since 2017. In addition to reducing our energy consumption, green electricity is also helping to reduce CO2 emissions. Water and waste plans concretise objectives and provide guidance to optimise and reduce.
3.Health risk and safety assessments for shopping centres in 2018.
An objective that was redefined to create a Health & Safety dashboard: inspections, tests, procedures, ... are clearly listed and monitored.
4.BREEAM VERY GOOD for shopping centres in 2020.
BREEAM certification provides a comprehensive assessment of each building in order to reduce impact on the environment.
