On September 12, 2013 in Sound Garden Hotel in Warszawie
The Conference Switch to Green will be held
Over 9 billion kilograms of dangerous electro waste were collected in Warsaw during the action organized by DTZ, Jones Lang LaSalle, Knight Frank, Skanska and Stena Recycling. Electro waste was then sold, and the whole income was given to WWF Poland Foundation. It is a single event, important of course; however, every day care about the environment seems to be important as well. What other solutions do real estate companies use, and what kinds are used by municipal officials, are the actions of Polish major cities compatible to the trend of sustainable development?
We will talk on whether investing in energy-saving products is worth-wile, or not. How long does one have to wait for the refunding of investment costs? Which novelties have recently appeared on the market?
We will also discuss the issues connected with the certificates. So far, most of the owners have decided to choose LEED and BREEAM certificates. Who will dare to change them into German certificate DGNB, or French HQE? Which criterion does one have to fulfill in order to get them?
We will ask whether Polish developers are interested in certification and whether Polish consumers are ready to pay for green solutions.
The invited experts will answer the question on how to design, equip and exploit a commercial center in order to make it eco - minded. Its occupants, which are the lessees, should also think about the environment. What is the difference between the solutions used by real estate managers and those of retail chains owners?
