Panattoni has summarised its activities in the field of sustainable development. In 2020 alone, the company obtained green certificates for 2.6 million sqm of its developments as well as a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating for one park with a score that makes it the greenest industrial building in the world. Panattoni’s portfolio also includes facilities with BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and ‘Very Good’ certificates as well as DGNB at the ‘Gold’ level. The developer is now taking its latest steps in this area, including introducing energy from renewable sources (RES) to its buildings and upgrading them to BREEAM certification at the ‘Excellent’ level.
