Poland CA Immo’s green lease initiative

Green projects
CA Immo has concluded 45 lease agreements with a total of nearly 29,000 sqm of office space in Warsaw in the past year, 20 pct of which in Q4 of 2022. The company has also introduced a green lease initiative in 2022, governing mutual commitment of landlord and tenant to optimize sustainable building operations. Since May 2022, 23 green lease agreements have already been concluded.

CA Immo Poland recorded greater momentum in leasing activity and a return to pre-pandemic levels during 2022. Currently, the overall economic occupancy rate in CA Immo’s Warsaw portfolio stands at 93 pct. Renewals involved more than 21,000 sqm of leased space. The remaining 8,000 sqm leased were expansions and new contracts.

Our green lease initiative has been extremely well received by tenants as it creates a win-win-situation: we can manage the whole building efficiently and climate-friendly, and our tenants can reduce their operating costs, at the same time setting a strong example for sustainability.
Andrzej Mikołajczyk, Managing Director at CA Immo in Poland

The introduction of “green leases” is a distinguishing factor of CA Immo's offering at the Polish market. Both tenants and landlord commit to saving natural resources and energy. Benefits of a green lease include efficient energy management through active exchange and analysis of consumption data (incl. tenant consumption), cost savings through the reduction of electricity consumption and CO2 emission intensity, promotion and use of renewable energy sources, waste reduction and avoidance of environmentally harmful cleaning agents. So far, the company has signed "green leases" for nearly 18,000 sqm of office space in Warsaw.

In line with the company’s ESG commitment to push energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions, CA Immo is investing in the modernization and sustainability of its buildings on a constant basis. Since 2021, the company's entire Warsaw portfolio has been powered by 100 pct renewable electricity.
