ADA MALL, GOLD LEED certification shows exemplary leadership in sustainable building practices.
LEED certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement and leadership and is the acronym that stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and is the Green Building Rating System developed by the U.S. Green Building Council.
We believe green buildings are the foundation of something bigger: helping people, and the communities and cities they reside in—safely, healthily and sustainably thrive. The heart of GTC’s green building community’s efforts for a long time go well beyond construction and efficiency, and the materials that make up our buildings. We always dig deeper and focus on what matters most within those buildings: human beings.
ADA MALL, Belgrade shopping mall is delighted to obtain GOLD LEED ratings which recognize GTC’s strong business profile and provides the Group with more flexibility to underline it’s foothold in the CEE Real Estate market.

Therefore, one of GTC’s strategic goals is to constantly strive to increase the level of business sustainability and at the same time reduce the Group’s impact on the environment. Green initiative means questions about the quality and ecology, which must be asked prior to the investment.

Improved health and productivity benefits are playing a larger role than ever before in driving companies to invest in green building.

GTC’s recent EUR 500 mln green bond issue, was three-times over-subscribed. GTC has stated that the issue forms part of a change in approach from structured to unstructured Eurobond financing.
’’ Having a portfolio with 84 pct of the buildings holding green certificates at ‘Very Good’ or ‘Excellent’ levels, it was natural for us to issue green bonds. Green bonds are a promise that the money investors put in will be dedicated to environmentally responsible projects, which is why there has been such a high level of interest. The issue received a strong reception from the broad European fixed-income investor universe and was several times oversubscribed with a peak order book over EUR 1.4bn.’’ said Jovav Carmi, GTC S.A. president.
