CREATING SUSTAINABLE CENTRES
BREEAM AS THE PREFERRED CERTIFICATION
Third-party certification distinguishes products and services from our competitors and gives us confidence about our performance. BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) addresses wide-ranging environmental and sustainability issues and enables developers and designers to prove the environmental credentials of their buildings to a wide range of stakeholders. BREEAM is the leading and most widely used environmental assessment method for buildings. It sets the standard for best practice in sustainable design and has become the preferred used to describe a building’s environmental performance. It is fully integrated in the design and development of our new buildings, but also part of the design in (large) redevelopments. Based on research we participate in, in the medium to long term we intend to link the value of our centres to the BREEAM scores. This way our strategic approach to building certification directly helps the bottom line.
We have set targets on minimizing our environmental impact of our developments (100% green): the compliance to BREEAM Good standard and the realisation of Environmental Impact Assessments.
