Environmentally conscious

SHIFT is naturally respectful of the environment

The SHIFT project adheres completely to Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield’s CSR* strategy commitment to sustainable development.

Thanks to its innovative vision, SHIFT realizes an architectural and ecological transition between yesterday’s and tomorrow’s workplace that aims for the double certification of BREEAM “Excellent” and HQE “Exceptional”.

Committed to renewable energy, SHIFT has chosen a geothermal solution to reduce its energy consumption.

Convinced that the workspace can increase employee awareness of the ecological stakes of tomorrow, Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield has made SHIFT a laboratory in which to experiment with the practices of tomorrow, such as urban farming.
