In concrete terms, we encourage business practices which are respectful of the environment by taking action every day through multiple eco-responsible actions aiming at:
- saving energy by optimal use of lighting and heating
- recycling all recyclable material, especially paper
- reducing our paper usage by using digital technologies and emails
- respecting the environment, by using healthy materials in our buildings
- producing the least amount possible of waste material by responsible purchasing of recyclable and sustainable products behaviour

This certification, which is one of the most sought of the entire industry of commercial real estate, cerfifies that the Centropolis applies real estate management policies according to the most rigorous environmental practices which are in conformity with our values.
