Utility costs do consume a large percentage of a shopping centres cost of operations and overheads. When managed correctly, these costs can be reduced by up to 30%. Farnek’s award-winning environmental mall benchmarking study, endorsed by The Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, was revealed earlier this year. The study provides a benchmark for malls to monitor their energy performance, water use and waste generation.
Farnek and the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy are launching phase two of the study at this year’s RECON MENA 2018 encouraging all malls to participate. One of the study’s major advocates and participants, the Dubai Mall, will join the discussion to highlight how the study has helped it reduce consumption, have a positive effect on the environment and save on costs. The discussion will provide mall owners and operators with more visibility surrounding their industry’s energy performance, water use and waste generation.
