Mercialys rolls out a range of concrete initiatives to engage retailers and customers in its centers’ sustainable development actions
02 July 2018
More than two years after the launch of Mery’21, Mercialys’ CSR strategy, significant progress has been made in a number of areas. In 2017, the shopping centers reduced their water and energy consumption levels by 6% and 5% respectively, while increasing their waste recovery rate by 13%. At end-2017, the 38 photovoltaic systems in place across Mercialys’ portfolio produced the equivalent of 86% of the energy consumed by the centers, up 17% since 2015. Lastly, 100% of the new leases signed in 2017 include an environmental schedule with a program of actions to reduce stores’ environmental impacts and support the exchange of information between the lessor and lessee.
