La Quinta joins once more the 'Earth Hour' initiative, within our commitment to climate change, turning off the lights of all our workplaces for an hour from 20.30 to 21.30 on Saturday 27 March.
We are aware of the importance of caring for and protecting the environment, and energy saving is a vital aspect. We have been working along this line within our corporate responsibility strategy
We have an office with high levels of thermal insulation, divided into different departments that are managed in a sectorized manner by very efficient last generation heat pumps, allowing greater savings and lower energy consumption. Also, from the very beginning, all the lighting elements have LED devices.
In order to strengthen our sustainable mobility strategy, we have a fleet of 100% electric vehicles (Peugeot Partner, Nissan LEAF, motorbike Italia 2000) and plug-in hybrid vehicles (BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLC 350e) which allow us to substantially reduce our carbon footprint in our work displacements.
BREEAM® Sustainability Certification
For our next real estate development "Real de La Quinta", we have proceeded to gain the sustainability certification BREEAM, being the first infrastructure planning project certified with the Bream seal in Spain. The rating for this assessment has been VERY GOOD.
Breeam certification helps to improve the level of building sustainability in Spain by promoting the best practices and technologies available on the market.
BREEAM® (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology) is the world's most technically advanced and world-leading building sustainability assessment and certification method with +20 years on the market and +541,000 certified buildings in 77 countries since its inception in 1990.
