    Mexican Real Estate Companies Striving for Environmental Efficiency and Sustainability

    The Mexican Association of Real Estate Fibers (AMEFIBRA) announced that its associated companies had a total Gross Leasable Area (GLA) of 6,154,791 million square meters (m2) certified by the end of 2022. These properties, owned by Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), have obtained some form of environmental efficiency or sustainability certification.

    As the demand for environmentally friendly and sustainable buildings increases, these certifications play a crucial role in validating the efforts made by these companies. They not only generate confidence among stakeholders but also highlight the actions taken to improve efficiency in the Mexican real estate sector.

    AMEFIBRA further revealed that these Fibras, as the associated companies are referred to, are aiming to increase their significant figure in 2024. This demonstrates their commitment to further enhancing their environmental practices and sustainability efforts.

    One notable mention is Fibra Uno, which has been recognized by Sustainalytics as one of the top 6 companies with Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) practices in Latin America. Furthermore, Fibra Uno has once again been included in the Mexican Stock Exchange’s Total ESG S&P sustainability index. These accolades acknowledge the company’s dedication to incorporating sustainable practices in its operations.

    In terms of water management, 84.2% of Fibra Uno’s commercial properties operate a water treatment plant. This highlights the company’s commitment to minimizing its environmental impact and promoting responsible water usage within its properties.

    These achievements by Mexican real estate companies reflect the growing emphasis on sustainability and environmental responsibility within the industry. By obtaining certifications and implementing sustainable practices, these companies are leading the way towards a greener and more efficient real estate sector in Mexico.
