Vesta is committed to reducing the environmental impact in our developments and operations, for the benefit of our tenants, the real estate industry, and the communities where we operate.
Vesta understands that, considering the characteristics of our core business, our stakeholder participation is key to achieving the sustainable development goals established by our environmental strategy.
Our developments are built by contractors based on the specifications of the Vesta Sustainable Construction Manual, which was drafted in 2012 in collaboration with a strategic partner and in accordance to international sustainable construction standards. The Manual describes strategies to be used in designing industrial parks aimed at reducing environmental impacts during construction, once the buildings are in use, and during their future demolition. These actions include:
Our Sustainable Construction Manual includes a number of strategies that are used during the design of our industrial buildings, thus reducing environmental impact during construction, usage, and eventual demolition of our buildings.
At Vesta we promote the use of eco-efficient technologies that have the lowest water and energy impacts, by implementing LEED Certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). This international standard enabled us to reduce energy and water consumption and foster these sustainable practices with our main stakeholders.
In addition, all of our new inventory buildings were built in accordance with our internal “eco-efficient” guidelines, with which we underline our commitment to preserving the environment.
