The biggest challenge mankind faces in the modern world are all sustainability issues. WLP prides itself in exercising its responsibilities concerning social stewardship and environmental impact by operating in the most sustainable ways possible today
In an effort to reduce its carbon footprint, Weerts Logistics Parks pledged to undertake BREEAM certification for all future developments starting as from 1st of January 2021 targeting a “Very Good” or higher rating. Additionally, all recently delivered developments underwent a BREEAM In-Use assessment.
From 2020 onwards, Weerts Logistics Parks committed to equip its state-of-the-art buildings with solar panels to enable tenants to self-source green energy. The current total power generation capacity installed on the building roofs is approximately 12 MWp, with an annual production of over 11,000 MWh. That is the equivalent of the annual energy consumption of 3,700 households and an emissions reduction of approx. 5,000,000 kilograms of CO2.
By 2024-2025, Weerts Logistics Parks will operate 60 MWp producing 50,000 MWh annually.
Intelligent Buildings and Systems
Weerts Logistics Parks’ buildings are consistently furnished with building materials and fittings that significantly improve energy efficiency and performance (such as insulation and LED lighting). Furthermore, all premises have motion detectors so as to reduce our tenants’ energy consumption.
Weerts Logistics Parks seeks sustainable added value in its partnerships. Ethias has found a partner in Weerts Group who is also on the same page when it comes to sustainable social development. Both partners not only display a strong social connection at the local level, but also strive to achieve the objectives of the European Green Deal.
