GTC, a leading developer and asset manager in Central and Eastern Europe, has been awarded the Very Good BREEAM certificate for one of its Warsaw assets, the Artico office building. Thus, the company has successfully completed the green adaptation process for all its Polish commercial assets. The achievement follows a consistent implementation of the company’s sustainable strategy.
The total of 18 GTC’s buildings in Poland have now confirmed their BREEAM or LEED status. GTC is the owner and the manager of a number of office buildings in the largest Polish cities, including Warsaw, Kraków, Katowice, Poznań, Wrocław and Łódź. Also GTC’s shopping malls: Galeria Jurajska in Częstochowa and Galeria Północna in Warsaw were awarded green certificates.. This is a great achievement, as only few retail facilities in Poland meet the necessary requirements to be certified. The certifications received by all GTC’s assets prove the company’s strong focus on securing tenants’ well-being.
“I am proud that we accomplished certification process for all our buildings in Poland. As a socially responsible company we care about environment and we keep investing in sustainable solutions. We are focusing on well-being of our tenants. It is important for us to shape workplaces where people feel good, safe and effective” – commented Yovav Carmi, the President of the Management Board at GTC.
