“Macerich is a proven industry leader in sustainability, not only when it comes to new buildings, but also in terms of how we update, modernize and operate our well-placed established retail properties in top markets. Measuring existing projects against strong environmental standards, such as BREEAM, confirms our integrated sustainability efforts are delivering results at the highest levels.”
Jeff Bedell, VP, Sustainability, Macerich
“In partnership with Macerich, RealFoundations completed an evaluation of BREEAM USA assessment methodology as the framework for Macerich to achieve sustainable performance through operational efficiency across their portfolio. BREEAM is the clear market leader with its dynamic real time scoring platform, continuous tracking of improved performance at the asset level and across the portfolio. BREEAM In-Use methodology proved without a doubt the right tool for Macerich to embed as they expand their corporate program.”
John Seaton, Director, RealFoundations
“We at Healthy Buildings are delighted to support Macerich and BREEAM USA as they pioneer a practical and cost-effective sustainability program in the USA. It is often said that the leaders have to be first or best, or both. Between BREEAM and Macerich we have a powerful combination of experience and innovation. Our team looks forward to working with both organizations in the months and years to come.”
Simon Turner, CEO, Healthy Buildings
The BRE USA team did a fantastic job at thoroughly prepping and explaining all the ins and outs of the program and organizational structure. The team is well organized and dynamic, which made for a very productive two-day session. I would certainly recommend the training program for anyone who is thinking about or seeking to become an Assessor for themselves and their organization.

We are particularly proud of obtaining this level of certification and thereby becoming the first shopping centre in the world to be certified Outstanding for both parts. It recognizes a systematic involvement and awareness of the team on environmental issues from the design stage to the day-to-day property management.

Washington Plaza has proved to be a good compromise between accessibility, particularly for the majority of our employees who are based in western Paris, a prestigious address that we share with some of our clients, organizational efficiency, and the potential to absorb future growth. Now that we have been here for several months, I consider that it is a real success. We felt that SFL was seeking to move upmarket and add value to its portfolio. I would not have signed for nine years if I hadn’t been convinced by this strategy of investing in quality. There is enormous value in having everyone in the same space; I only have good things to say about the relocation. Although I cannot quantify it, there is no doubt that both productivity and employee well-being have increased. Feedback from our clients is also very positive and contributes to our excellent brand image. I can safely say that this has been a successful choice and that the return on investment is already tangible.
