Redevco receives first BREEAM CH certificate ever awarded in Switzerland


Redevco, the retail-anchored real estate investor that is one of Europe’s largest owners of high street properties, received the very first BREEAM CH ever awarded in Switzerland. The company targets 100% certification by the end of 2016 and has achieved the “greening” of more than 65% of the investment value of its portfolio already according to the BREEAM methodology.

Redevco owns around 450 buildings in the most popular retail locations in Europe spread across Belgium, Germany, France, Hungary, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, Spain, the U.K. and Switzerland. In Austria, Switzerland and Central Europe Redevco has accumulated a portfolio of 20 properties since 1999. Its current investments in the region include prime high street stores in Zürich, Geneva, Vienna and Budapest, plus interests in the SCS Vienna and Tivoli Spreitenbach shopping centers.

Dirk Adriaenssen, Managing Director Redevco Switzerland and Central Europe, said: “We are proud to be the first ever to receive a BREEAM CH certificate in Switzerland. It is our aim to demonstrate a good balance between economic sustainability, environmental friendliness and the needs of the local community. Our extensive BREEAM-program fully supports this and is an important element in making and keeping our portfolio future proof.”

The very first BREEAM CH certificate ever to be awarded in Switzerland was received for one of Redevco’s high street properties in Basel. The historic building with a listed façade, achieved a ‘Good’ rating after an extensive refurbishment of the interior and part of the exterior of the building, which
required both tenant C&A as well as landlord Redevco to be involved. Redevco received an additional 5 certificates in Switzerland for properties in Geneva, Luzern, Winterthur and Zurich. In Austria, where it now holds 4 certificates in total, Redevco was also the first to receive a BREEAM award.
