Neinver’s entire Polish portfolio receives BREEAM certification

Neinver has obtained a BREEAM In-Use certification for Factory Gliwice–the latest of its outlets to open in Poland–and with this, its entire Polish portfolio is now officially certified.

Factory Gliwice earned a “Very Good” rating in asset performance and was certified “Excellent” in asset management thanks to the strict sustainability criteria introduced in the center’s management model. 

“We believe that making the right environmental decisions helps improve the wellbeing of our tenants, employees and communities and also helps to ensure an adequate risk management of the assets for our investment partners,” says Bożena Gierszewska, Country Head Poland.

In 2019, the company renewed the certifications of all its Factory outlet centers and Futura Park, upgrading their sustainable management ratings from “Very Good” to “Excellent”. 

Over the past five years, the Polish centers have cut their energy use by 17%, while all of their electricity is produced by renewable sources. They have also taken steps to improve water management, including the installation of systems to capture rainfall and reuse any water harvested for irrigation purposes. In recent years, the company has also rolled out a number of biodiversity initiatives, which have included bee conservation, the assembly of breeding nests for birds and bats, the installation of insect hotels and the planting of various flower beds around its centers.
