Water consumption is mainly destined for sanitary supply, food court sector in shopping centers, cleaning of facilities and irrigation.
Sanitary facilities generally have Pressmatic or similar command systems that allow water savings of around 20% compared to past technologies.
In those cases where it is possible for the facilities, rainwater recovery is carried out for other uses, mainly irrigation..
EFFICIENT USE OF ENERGY
Actions are carried out continuously to minimize consumption, which includes:
- improvements in air conditioning technologies,
- maintenance of facilities and constant monitoring,
- migration to led lighting,
- awareness campaigns on the care of the resource to own personnel, tenants and customers.
- Part of our actions is to promote waste REDUCTION, and we are also pioneers in the management of RECYCLING.
- Currently all IRSA CP facilities have terminals with separation baskets for waste, segregating them in recyclable (dry) and non-recyclable (wet).
- In four of our shopping malls, Alto Palermo, Arcos District, Alcorta shopping and Alto Rosario, we implement the separation of organic waste generated in the gastronomic stores.
- We have bottle racks and "tapitódromos" to recover these materials.
- We promote the initiative in the reduction and recycling of single-use plastics, adhering to the straws campaign.
- We have a training program in waste management for our own, outsourced and tenant personnel.
- We reuse printer tonner cartridges, avoiding disposal after a single use.
- We recycle the scrap of electrical and electronic equipment when its useful life ends.
- We promote the transformation into biodiesel of vegetable oil used by the gastronomic tenants of our shopping malls.
- We have Green Points so that the community can approach to leave their recyclables.
CORPORATE CULTURAL CHANGE
We are part of a process of cultural change, which we share and extend to the people with whom we interact.
As part of environmental communication and promotion, campaigns and actions for the care of resources are carried out internally, under the motto “Doing it is easy”. The main axes are the care of water, energy, minimization and separation of waste.
Likewise, promotional campaigns are carried out, especially on the occasion of Environment Day, as well as other works to get closer to nearby communities through environmental actions.
Through competitions and training to our own staff, we raise awareness in environmental matters.
