Green light for change. Panattoni’s activities in the field of corporate social responsibility cover many areas. The company is at the forefront of green changes in the industrial real estate sector. It was the first company in Poland to introduce the BREEAM environmental certification into its standard, first at Very Good and then Excellent level, which has already obtained more than 400,000 m² of space made available by the company. In Poland, the portfolio of Panattoni installations confirmed by green certificates amounts to more than 5 million m², and the plans include an additional 3.5 million m². It should be emphasized that the certification of installations goes hand in hand with the reduction of energy and water consumption in buildings, as well as with the improvement of the well-being of the people who work there. In addition, Panattoni is confidently moving towards zero emissions, including supplying a significant part of its portfolio with energy from renewable sources, or increasingly installing photovoltaic installations and heat pumps. The company also cares about the biodiversity of its investments and the well-being of those who work in the facilities, incl. by setting up green relaxation areas.
Balanced, varied. Creating a friendly environment for the employees of their investments goes hand in hand with multidisciplinary support from the Panattoni team, which in Poland alone employs almost 600 people. The company promotes equal opportunities, respects diversity and excludes discrimination based on age, disability or gender, as evidenced by the structures – half of the company’s management positions are held by women. Panattoni invests in the well-being and work-life balance of its team – each of the 11 offices in Poland has properly designed offices, webinars on maintaining work-life balance are organized and benefit platforms are provided. In addition, the company has a strong focus on development, including through departmental and individual training, or co-funding studies and courses, including language courses. The Panatattoans, on the other hand, are involved in supporting charities such as Unicef or the Instytut Curie.
The developer helps on several levels. From the start of the coronavirus pandemic, it supported doctors and provided medical structures with the necessary equipment. In the face of the ongoing war in the East, the company has made free industrial space available to Ukrainian companies, allowing the relocation of resources, and has joined the #Property4Ukraine campaign. In this context, representatives of the real estate sector have transformed office spaces into living spaces for refugees. The company is also a sponsor of two football academies – BVB them. Łukasz Piszczek and Widzew Łódź.
A natural part of Panattoni’s development is also the support of local communities. The promoter creates the necessary road infrastructure in the areas of his investments, builds sidewalks or erects bus stops. In addition, it has planted many plants in the cities where it operates. The company also responds to other urgent needs, for example by financing the renovation of hospital services and health centers (for example in Gdańsk), or by equipping the sensory integration office in one of the primary schools in Warcz.
