Our first BREEAM building in Poland will be a major step forward for the development team in Central Europe, and we look forward to continuing our progress in 2015.

STANISLAW ZYSEK Technical Manager, Central Europe

During 2014, we have certified 10 of our new developments and one refurbishment project. In SEGRO 2020, we have committed to achieving at least BREEAM ‘Very Good’ (or local equivalent rating) in buildings over 10,000 sq m where technically possible and commercially viable.

We have also recently started work on our first BREEAM certified building in Poland, which is due for completion in 2015. This is a big step for our Polish team and demonstrates our commitment to providing the right sustainability certifications for our buildings and customers.

To support our progress in this area, we require our technical managers to be trained in BREEAM and other certifications such as DGNB where suitable, and we have plans to train our development teams throughout 2015 to ensure they understand the requirements and certification process, and can extract maximum environmental benefit and value for our new buildings.
