Poland Panattoni now takes Excellent

Green projects
Panattoni has been granted an ‘Excellent’ rating under the BREEAM International New Construction system for Panattoni Park Sosnowiec I.

This is the first time such a high certification level has been achieved on the Polish industrial real estate market for a newly built project. The park was awarded the maximum score (100 pct) for its water systems (which resulted in a 66.5 pct reduction in water consumption) as well as for land use and its ecological features. Greenhouse gas emissions have been reduced to 46 pct of the baseline level, and the park has been built on a post-industrial site.
