Last year, CTP was the first in the industry to enter into a collaboration agreement with BRE for the implementation of the “BREEAM In-Use International” certification for its entire industrial portfolio. The BREEAM In-Use certification is a science-based sustainability certificate that allows quick comparison of the performance of assets across territories. In Hungary, Excellent is the highest rate ever awarded, which has so far been achieved by only a few high-end office buildings.
As a result of the recently completed rating process, all of CTP's buildings in Hungary (19 properties) have received BREEAM In-Use certification, and 4 of their buildings have earned Excellent rating, which contributed to the success of the portfolio-wide rating process of the group, and as a result the company has become the industry leader in Hungary. It is important to highlight that currently the CTPark Arrabona - GYR1 building is the highest graded Excellent rated BREEAM In-Use building in Hungary, including high-end, modern office buildings as well. Special mention should be made of GAMMA Properties Kft., who have contributed greatly to the acquisition of Excellent ratings.
„During the project, the biggest challenge for us was to collect and select the huge amount of data, but thanks to the persistent work of my colleagues and partners, we successfully completed these tasks. Special attention was paid to 14 of our mostly multi-tenant properties, where we had to ensure compliance with each requirement in a tenant-specific manner. In addition to the this, mechanical and infrastructural developments were necessary in order for the buildings to meet the conditions required for the “Very Good” rating, which was a minimum expectation on our part” said Tibor Móritz, Head of Property Management Hungary.
The aim of the project, which is unique in the industry, was to demonstrate CTP Invest’s commit-ment to the environment and sustainability through an independent, third-party certification process. The company is confident that it has set a new standard that will be determinative for market players in the future.
