Sustainability and renewable energy

BIG promotes a business strategy for reviewing, improving, and streamlining their environmental impact metrics. We apply our values of sustainability and commitment to the community and the environment to many channels, including investing in renewable energy, integrating international carbon footprint reporting indicators, and green building.

The Group implements international construction standards, including the preeminent standard for green building – LEED, which concerns the design, construction, and operation of environmentally-friendly buildings. In the management and operation of the centers, a broad variety of aspects are addressed such as separating waste, encouraging the use of compostable cutlery for serving food, creating parking infrastructure for electric cars, and more.

In March 2022, BIG’s K2 Business Campus building in Belgrade, Serbia was awarded the strict LEED Platinum standard.

BIG also founded, in collaboration with Mega Or Holdings, a branch for investments in renewable energy. The companies combine their strengths in the field of yield-bearing real estate through massive investment in the renewable energy industry:

  • Expanding the production of electricity in the various shopping centers using green energy, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Investment in ground-breaking energy storage technologies.
  • Investment in renewable energy projects in the regions in which the Company operates.
  • Accessibility to significant financing resources at affordable costs.
