Buildings represent a large fraction of global carbon emissions and energy consumption. In addition, shopping centres affect local communities in several ways. By integrating sustainability measures into our daily operations, we aim to do more than expected to achieve sustainable development. We have long promoted sustainable solutions through integrated energy planning. We have brought together the architects, building designers, and technology specialists to retrofit the existing buildings.
