A new Green Star in the GRESB ranking
Making an impressive debut in the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB), Cegereal has been ranked in the survey’s highest category, achieving a Green Star status. The company has thus been recognized for its responsible management and sustainable development in the global real estate sector.
GRESB is an international organization dedicated to assessing the sustainability performances of real estate portfolios around the world and benchmarking listed and non-listed companies according to corporate social responsibility (CSR) criteria.
In 2014, its report looked at 637 companies and real estate funds, covering 56,000 buildings with a total value of €1,500 billion.
Cegereal’s ranking reflects the extent to which its management team is committed to leading all of its activities in a responsible and sustainable manner.
Cegereal is currently in the final stages of its Go Green project to become a fully ”green” property company.
• Europlaza (52,000 sq.m.) and Arcs de Seine (45,000 sq.m.) are the third and fourth buildings in France to be certified compliant with both HQE Exploitation and BREEAM In-Use International Very Good standards. The certification process for the Rives de Bercy building is nearing completion.
• Cegereal wants to become the first French property company to have all the assets in its portfolio certified to environmental standards by the end of 2014.

Cegereal is pursuing its goal of offering its shareholders and users – both tenants and visitors – a portfolio of modern property assets that meet the most exacting environmental standards. The imminent completion of the Go Green project strengthens our desire to further our initiatives in the area of sustainable development.”
