New breeam certificate confirmed the sustainability of the new Centrum Černý Most

Prague, 11th June 2012 – Centrum Černý Most shopping centre fully meets the required standards and achieved a BREEAM rating of “VERY GOOD”. The new certificate represents an important milestone in the development of the new supra-regional shopping centre and confirms the sustainable approach of its developer Unibail-Rodamco. It is the first building in Prague certified BREEAM ”VERY GOOD” in the “Retail” category.

BREEAM, the world's leading design and assessment method and rating system for sustainable buildings, has confirmed that the new Centrum Černý Most shopping centre fulfills all standards needed for the rating of very good. The assessment was carried out under the 2008 version of BREEAM Europe Retail and awarded the developer Unibail-Rodamco with a new certificate.

„Focus on the environment is one of the most important commitments of our company, which is reflected in the entire construction of the new Centre Černý Most shopping centre. Latest materials and construction technologies were chosen in line with the sustainable development policy to minimize impacts on the environment not only during the construction but also within the operation of our shopping centers. Therefore, we are very proud that BREEAM has confirmed our approach is right. This acknowledgement belongs also to Benoy and Helica companies who cooperate with us closely on the architecture and design of the project,” said Arnaud Burlin, Unibail-Rodamco Managing Director for Central Europe.

The opening of the new Centrum Černý Most shopping centre is scheduled for spring 2013. It will offer more than 160 retail units to its customers and the total size of the mall will exceed 82,000 m2. Centrum Černý Most will be the first shopping centre in the Czech Republic to combine unparalleled interior and exterior design with maximum focus on sustainability. Careful attention was paid to every detail.

„Centrum Černý Most will simply become a great place where customers can meet, relax and be entertained,” concluded Arnaud Burlin.

Focus on sustainability of Unibail-Rodamco is noticeable also in other activities of the company. Centrum Černý Most and Centrum Chodov were the first in the Czech Republic that offered charging stations for electric vehicles in their parking areas. Recently, three bee hives have been installed on the Centrum Chodov shopping centre roof to support beekeeping in Prague.

BREEAM is the world's foremost environmental assessment method and rating system for buildings, with 200,000 buildings with certified BREEAM assessment ratings and over a million registered for assessment since it was first launched in 1990. BREEAM sets the standard for best practice in sustainable building design, construction and operation and has become one of the most comprehensive and widely recognised measures of a building's environmental performance.

A BREEAM assessment uses recognised measures of performance, which are set against established benchmarks, to evaluate a building’s specification, design, construction and use. The measures used represent a broad range of categories and criteria from energy to ecology. They include aspects related to energy and water use, the internal environment (health and well-being), pollution, transport, materials, waste, ecology and management processes.
