On September 28, 2021, CA Immo announced that it had harvested approximately 55 kilograms of honey from the urban apiary located on the Saski Crescent office building’s rooftop in Warsaw.
According to the company, Saski Crescent offers more than 15,000 square meters of office space, and its rooftop hosts four beehives and approximately 320,000 bees. The apiary just closed its second year of operation and is one of CA Immo’s projects aimed at protecting the environment.
“It was obvious to us that we should not close the urban apiary on the rooftop of Saski Crescent,” said CA Immo Poland Asset Manager Kamila Piekarska. “Some bees are endangered species, and they still have a key impact on our environment and biodiversity. So we seek possibilities to adopt new beehives at our developments. At the same time, we are rolling out additional environmental, social, and corporate governance activities involving responsible investing and managing environmental issues. By using electricity and gas from green sources only at all our projects across Europe, as of 2023, we plan to reduce carbon emissions by about 60,400 tonnes per year. We already use green energy in all our office buildings in Poland.”
