BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology) certification is a method for assessing and rating the environmental sustainability of buildings. This environmental assessment of buildings focuses on various areas such as energy, water, materials, management, health and welfare, pollution, waste, transportation, and ecosystems.
BREEAM Certifications with Helexia
Although it is not a mandatory certification, Leroy Merlin decided to implement it, with Helexia's help, within its sustainability policies and currently 9 stores are doing this certification: Leiria, Albufeira, Aveiro, Funchal, Loulé, Alta de Lisboa, Setúbal, Sintra and Matosinhos.
The motivations for carrying out a BREEAM certification are to provide these stores with environmental conditions in line with the best sustainability practices at various levels.
