Sustainability at the heart of real estate

Clemens Brenninkmeijer, Head of Sustainability at Redevco and Nele Schelfhout, Head of Project Management at Redevco Belgium have been interviewed by Media Planet Belgium for the special: Real Estate & Innovation.

“We ensure that each time we acquire, optimise or develop a building, we seize opportunities for proactive asset management. We do this taking into account the potential impact of reducing energy consumption and the corresponding CO2 emissions,” explains Clemens Brenninkmeijer. Nele Schelfhout describes why the Waterloo RICH’L redevelopment project in Belgium integrates these various sustainability measures. The buildings on the long established retail complex, feature good, hermetic insulation and a green roof that makes cooling spaces easier, as well as solar panels that supply tenants with green electricity. Nele adds: “When it comes to sustainability, there must not be any limits: we need to leave the beaten track, experiment and learn lessons.”.
