POLAND First Polish Fitwel for Shell Energy in Kraków

Green projects
Shell Energy has become the first company in Poland to be awarded a Fitwel healthy building certificate for the office space leased in the High5ive building in Kraków.

The health and wellness solutions introduced by Shell Energy and the developer/owner of the building, Skanska, include common spaces, the accessibility of the building, the internal environment and facilities for users. The tenant only uses eco-friendly, certified and hypoallergenic products to clean the surfaces, while also testing the air quality annually for concentrations of such pollutants as particulate matter, carbon dioxide and formaldehyde. A minimum score of 90 out of 140 points for such features is required to be Fitwel certified.

The tenant was supported in the certification process by Colliers’ green building certification services department.

The Fitwel certification recognizes the important steps Shell Energy has taken to optimize its Krakow office for health and wellness. In additon to features like lactation and relaxation rooms and a basketball court located next to the building to encourage physical activity, the property boasts plenty of greenery in the office space and access to healthy food for employees.
Andrzej Gutowski, an associate director of green building certification services at Colliers

Fitwel, which was originally created by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. General Services Administration, is a third-party certification system designed to encourage healthy buildings for occupants and communities. The standard is now maintained by the Center for Active Design.
