GTC pays particular attention to the development of sustainable and futureproof buildings in Poland. This approach goes hand-in-hand with business development, as both tenants and investors are looking forward to pursuing environmentally responsible properties. Care for the tenant’s well-being and adjusting to the highest ESG standards is manifested at all stages of property development – from choosing a location for new investment, through design and construction, to the asset management and creating service offers of a completed building. The company has gained its reputation in Poland for high-quality buildings by maintaining premium quality of tenant offer, capitalizing on timeless architecture and improving the offices with modern sustainable solutions, constantly revitalizing work and outdoor premises with elements that increase tenants’ wellbeing. With new directors on board, GTC hopes to continue with ESG-driven strategy while bringing its business development to the next level of efficiency.
Since 2021 all GTC’s Polish offices are powered by green energy and have environmental certificates, proving their ecological excellence.
