The Mall Fund, managed by Capital & Regional and Aviva Investors has continued to make progress with its programme to make its centres greener.

Recent figures show that over the past decade the Mall 's shopping centres have saved over 14,000 tonnes of CO2 and 38,000,000 kw of gas and electricity, equalling a saving of £2,650,000 in energy.

This comes on the back of The Mall Fund being named as the top performing private property fund for the whole of Europe the recent Environmental Performance report by Maastricht University. And last February with The Mall became the first shopping centre fund to be awarded the Carbon Trust Standard in recognition of its reduced carbon footprint and genuine commitment to make further reductions.

Ken Ford, executive director of Capital & Regional, said: “Over the last 10 years C&R has invested in and managed 25 shopping centres, and from day one we’ve always viewed it as good business to operate in a way that minimises the negative environmental impacts associated with large shopping centres.”
