We are ECO !
We are ECO!
Nowe Bielawy puts an emphasis on ECO!
In our shopping centre we care about the environment and the fate of the planet.
- We have been awarded the “green” BREEAM In-Use certificate granted to the most environmentally friendly shopping centres in Poland.
- As part of the Environmental Protection Policy in Nowy Bielawy, we have introduced rules and procedures aimed at taking greater care of the environment. We care for lower water and electricity consumption (e.g. by replacing ventilation and air-conditioning units), promotion of collective or minimally invasive means of transport and use of environmentally safe materials in the facility.
- We use new technologies, e.g. energy-efficient and environmentally friendly LED lighting inside and outside the facility.
- Together with the shops, we conduct rational waste management, take care of waste segregation, reduce the amount of waste produced and recycle waste.
- As part of our proprietary “Eco Smart” environmental education programme, we motivate customers to adopt an environmentally friendly attitude and advise them how to be eco-friendly every day.
- We are involved in such environmental initiatives as “Earth Hour”, a large collection of plastic bottle tops and the action of giving away plant seedlings for bottle tops.
- We cooperate with the WWF Poland Foundation and the Municipal Cleaning Company, with which we educate how to minimize our negative impact on the environment, save the oceans and help endangered species.
- We promote organic food and bio products (available in Carrefour hypermarket) and support local artists and craftsmen, e.g. during the Handicraft Fair in Nowe Bielawy.
- We organise educational actions for children and parents promoting unusual forms of pro-ecological education, such as trash art workshops, encouraging creative use of recyclable materials and promoting the idea of recycling.
- Through our bookcrossing library, we encourage Torun residents to practice less and zero waste.
- In Nowe Bielawy we take care of the vegetation around the facility, including taking care of new plantings, nurturing the surrounding trees by regular pruning, and modernizing the lawn irrigation system. This helps to rationalise water management and supports the reduction of CO2 in the atmosphere.
…and we are planning a number of further eco-investments in Nowe Bielawy!
