Environmental responsibility

Acquiring older properties and developing them opens up a possibility for us to affect their environmental impact. During 2011-2012 we initiated three expansion and renovation projects in which we created almost 10.000 sqm of environmentally friendly retail space. In 2014 two of our properties received gold and silver LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certificates.

Social responsibility
