Sustainability

Hines is a global leader in sustainable development. The firm partners with multiple specialized institutions to continually implement best practices and cutting-edge technologies and develop environment- and user-friendly buildings, minimazing negative impacts on environment during the design, development and operation stages.

Hines has extensive experience in LEED®, ENERGY STAR®, BREEAM, Haute Qualité Environnementale and DGNB building certification systems. It is the first firm in Poland to launch an investment fund with the goal of improving the environmental performance of buildings – Hines Poland Sustainability Income Fund. Implementing environment-friendly practices in all stages of an investment project translates into significant savings in the day-to-day operation of the building and increases the lifespan of individual systems used by tenants, thus decreasing the costs of repairs over the years.

„Although Hines is a global company, we understand that real estate is a local enterprise. The division into operational regions helps us learn more about the specific climate, culture and economy of each of the 111 cities worldwide where we have our offices. We believe that through improving the standards of green building, revitalizing the urban fabric with new developments, promoting regional movement, enriching public spaces and transport links around our buildings, as well as through working together with local authorities in the area of urban sustainability, we can have a positive impact on issues that go beyond our buildings.”
