O1 Standard observes environmental standards in the operation and management of its office real estate in order to keep environmental impact as low as possible. The building management systems used by the Company reduce the consumption of natural resources and minimize carbon footprint. Environmentally responsible practices are applied, including separate waste collection and recycling.
O1 Standard carries out certification of buildings to the internationally recognized environmental performance standard, BREEAM. As well as evaluating the quality of building management systems, BREEAM standards also take account of work by the owner and management company to create a comfortable and productive environment for tenants, as well as the impact, which buildings have on local communities.
Management of office centres to high environmental standards ensures the best-possible working conditions for the staff of tenant companies. Aspects, to which O1 Standard pays careful attention, include air quality, temperature, and acoustic and visual comfort. All buildings managed by O1 Standard incorporate recreation areas and (where possible) landscaped outdoor spaces.
