The Mall of Cyprus recently launched BETTER TOGETHER, a set of initiatives focusing on ESG causes and experiences, taking a step closer to a brighter future for all. The program kicked-off with the GREENER TOGETHER event, an exciting experience where innovators, pioneers and industry leaders got together to share the latest insights and products on sustainability and circular economy with the visitors of Mall of Cyprus.
In addition, embracing the ESG initiatives of BETTER TOGETHER, at the Mall of Cyprus we’re making a commitment for a greener future, by implementing a series of important upgrades in our facilities, concerning energy sources and consumption, as well as waste management:
We are happy to confirm that the Mall of Cyprus is about to run on cleaner energy thanks to an installation of a 677 kW PV system that is already up and running while another installation of an additional PV System 350 kW is on the way as well.
Efficient use of energy was always a priority for us at the Mall of Cyprus, thus over the past 3 years, several energy-saving measures have been put into action, such as the installation of a high-efficiency Central Cooling equipment (chillers) and a state-of-the-art BMS (Building Management System) that offers extensive energy monitoring and regulating capabilities. Furthermore, we’re examining the available options for moving away from traditional fossil fuel equipment and utilising alternative and higher efficiency equipment for the heating of the building.
Moving towards a zero-waste future, we’re also tackling extensive waste. We established a system were the organic waste produced within the restaurants of the Emporium Park, instead of being disposed in waste management plants, will be separated at source and transported to a private Organic Waste Recycling and Management Unit, catalytically contributing to the protection of the environment and fuelling the production of green electricity.
With every little step we took, we reduced our carbon footprint and energy consumption of the building by approximately 45%, while upgrading our Energy Rating to level B. However we won’t stop here. Through our forthcoming initiatives within the BETTER TOGETHER framework, we’re not only making Mall of Cyprus a greener place, but a brand with a straightforward sense of social responsibility.
