SES Receives Award from the Federal Ministry

At the end of August, Climate Protection Minister Leonore Gewessler presented awards to exemplary “klimaaktiv mobil Project Partners” in Vienna. SES Spar European Shopping Centers was recognized for its installation of e-charging stations at shopping centers located throughout Austria. In addition to the current 126 charging stations, SES intends to install an additional 21 charging points over the course of the next few months. At EUROPARK Salzburg alone, for example, the existing 12 charging stations will be increased to 18 by 2022 to meet growing demand.

“We have been investing in the installation of e-charging stations in the parking areas of our shopping centers for years, and we use 100 percent green electricity that is generated by renewable energy sources – just as we do for all electricity consumption within our Austrian malls. We are extremely honored to have been named a ‘klimaaktiv mobil Project Partner’,” commented SES COO and EUROPARK Managing Director Christoph Andexlinger, who accepted the award from the government official.

SES is also strongly committed to environmental issues relating to public transportation. As a result, the EUROPARK Salzburg and MURPARK Graz shopping centers each have their own city train connections, while MURPARK also features a tram station. EUROPARK is also connected to the local public transport system via seven bus lines and two city train lines. Dedicated bike paths connect most of the SES centers to the national bike path network that exists throughout Austria.
