CREATING SUSTAINABLE CENTRES
To corio, sustainability is about finding the optimal mix in the integration of social, environmental, aesthetic and economic quality in our centres. We measure sustainability in our operations by means of electricity intensity, co2 intensity and stakeholder engagement: the signing of green leases, green clauses and the code of conduct.
Of the five projects delivered in 2012, (Metropole, Singelborgh, Cityplaza, Arneken and Tarsu) one has received a BREEAM Good or higher rating (Tarsu), which translates to 20%. Worth to mention is that Tarsu received the highest BREEAM score ever in Turkey for a post-construction assessment (63.57%), resulting in a BREAAM Very Good certification, making it the most sustainable centre in Turkey. Corio currently holds 5 BREEAM certificates, making for 6% of the operational portfolio. Next to this, 100% of the centres in committed pipeline are subject to a BREEAM assessment. This of course excludes Corio offices, but it is not worthy to mention that Corio Italia received a BREEAM ‘very good’ rating for the development of their new office in Milan.
