The objective of this guide is to reduce the impacts of retail buildings on the environment and at the same time enhance business for developers, investors and retailers. It draws on the scientific expertise that supports BREEAM. Implementation of the guide will demonstrate users’ commitment to maintaining the quality of the environment and enhance the appeal of retail outlets to the shopping public. The guide will: increase understanding of owners, developers, designers and users, of impacts of buildings on the environment; set standards which exceed those required to meet regulations and legislation; encourage best practice in designing, fitting-out, operating and maintaining buildings; provide a route to market recognition for buildings where the environmental impacts have been reduced or minimised. 92 pages.
