Sustainable ‘green’ property development extends further than just the colour of our logo.
Innovation and environmental sustainability in our developments is an important consideration for Goodman and our customers. We work closely with our customers throughout the development process to integrate a range of sustainablity initiatives to maximise efficiency and minimise environmental impact. These include:
- External shading to office windows and curtain walling to reduce solar gain and glare
- Curved roof profile incorporating rooflights to maximise natural daylighting to the warehouses
- Complete reuse and recycle of onsite demolition material
- Solar hot water heating
- Electric car charging bays
- Rainwater harvesting and sustainable drainage system
- Grey water recycling
- LED lighting throughout offices and warehouses, with daylight sensing and motion control
Key European sustainability achievements
- Goodman has 1.6 million sqm of green certified assets under management in Continental Europe.
- Goodman has converted more than 400,000 sqm of old industrial space into modern logistics properties across Continental Europe.
- After the completion of ongoing construction projects, Goodman will have more than 1 million sqm of logistics space equipped with LED lighting in Continental Europe.
- Goodman has received more than 30 certifications for it’s developments from the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) and has a signed a master plan with the organisation to simplify the certification process for new developments in Germany, saving time and money.
- Given the lack of an appropriate market standard for sustainability assessment, Goodman developed an internal “Logistics Sustainability Benchmark” for its Continental European portfolio to measure the energy efficiency and intrinsic quality of the portfolio.
