Carbon footprint
2016 . Sonae Sierra
Challenge
Reduce our carbon footprint.
Action
Sonae Sierra has calculated its carbon footprint since 2004, which allows us to identify the most significant environmental impacts and to carefully plan our actions in the short, medium and long-term. Over the last few years, Sonae Sierra has been generating value in the shopping centre development and management industry, through its transparency and voluntary adherence to carbon emission benchmarks. By adopting measures to reduce carbon emissions, Sonae Sierra also achieved a reduction in its operational costs, while placing itself on a different level, in terms of the sector’s carbon footprint management practices.
Impact
  • With regard to electricity, Sonae Sierra has achieved a reduction of 72%, approximately 46,000 tCO2e, from 2012 to 2015. The avoided emissions have a potential value of 644,000€, in the current carbon markets. 
  • In 2016, 29 out of 45 owned centres used "green” electricity, generated entirely from renewable energy sources.
