Motivated by our environment
We believe in developing for the generations to come, something that makes us aware of the opportunities we have – and need to seize – to leave the world in a better condition than we found it. To seize these opportunities, we have developed our own unique approach to the sustainable development of future-proof distribution centres.
We always strive for an optimal result for our environment – landscape, flora & fauna and people – and to achieve the highest possible certifications, such as BREAAM and WELL, to minimise our CO2 emissions.
We are good for our planet. We reduce our ecological footprint by limiting the need for and use of energy, water and materials. We also encourage the reuse of building materials and stimulate the application of demountable construction techniques.
We are shifting our focus from immediate profit to total long-term value. We add value in three specific areas: user value, environmental value and future value.
Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's)
Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) consist of 17 goals to make the world a better place in 2030. The SDG’s intospace® contributes to are:
Affordable and clean energy
Intospace designs innovative energy solutions, including self-sufficient logistics, off-grid logistics warehouses. We also create energy-neutral and energy-positive logistics real estate (e.g. a total of 1 million m2 of solar panels).
Industry, innovation and infrastructure
Intospace wants to solve trapped urban traffic by designing and developing the next generation of last mile logistics. Intospace wants to address serious problems such as overloaded power grids by designing the energy systems of the future.
Sustainable cities and communities
Intospace develops buildings that add value to the environment and always aims for net-zero impact. We also want to create healthy and exciting workplaces that attract and retain the talent of the future.
We strive for a net-zero impact and limit material use, using recycled materials whenever possible.
Life on land
Intospace® takes a holistic approach to real estate development, enhancing biodiversity and ecosystems. We want to transform brownfield sites into green sites and create buildings that add environmental value (e.g., green roofs and parks).
Into: future-proof solutions
Our overall approach is built on seven pillars that collectively add value in line with our Human, Earth and Value sustainability drivers.
Each project is considered on its own and offers specific opportunities and possibilities when it comes to sustainability and circularity. For this reason, we investigate every area and opportunity to achieve the optimal solution for your project. This solution should be sustainable and circular where possible – carefully considered and future oriented. And while the goal is always to generate as much value as possible, we do this not just by focusing on our clients and their needs, but also by focusing on the entire environment around the project.
