Goodman is committed to creating sustainable developments which balance environmental impacts with social and economic benefits.
The performance of all new Goodman UK buildings substantially exceeds building regulation requirements, not only delivering an environmental benefit but also delivering substantial energy cost savings over the life of the building.
In order to benchmark the environmental performance of our buildings, we assess all new UK buildings against the BRE Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM). All new buildings will achieve a BREEAM rating of “Very Good” as a minimum.
We implement the requirements of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive and assess the operational energy performance of all new buildings. All new Goodman buildings achieve a minimum rating of “B”.
One of our sustainability successes include our development at Three Valleys Water, Hatfield. During the development process the careful consideration of the environmental performance of the 86,500 sq ft building has resulted in the award of a BREEAM rating of “Very Good”.
In becoming a member of the UK Green Building Council Goodman is committed to supporting the council in its mission “to dramatically improve the sustainability of the built environment by radically transforming the way it is planned, maintained and operated.”
