Toison d’Or

Retail centre in a large city area


Toison d’Or is a shopping mall located in Dijon, France and owned by Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield. This commercial property company seized an important opportunity when time came to refurbish the site. They did not only choose for a bigger surface and a new interior design, but above all they opted for a sustainable approach.

In 2008, Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield established a global sustainability policy. Different targets were set out and Bopro was appointed. We assessed the building in order to obtain a BREEAM In-Use certificate and our advice helped to improve the performance of standing assets on a daily basis.

Improvements were made through operational efficiency. The shopping experience is enhanced with digitally optimized lightning. Toison d’or reduces her carbon footprint with simple tricks: intelligent thermic installations, efficient management of heating and cooling. Watersaving and other energy-efficient appliances avoid a waste of resources and provide the best experience any time of the year.

Sustainability is part of the culture and management of Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield. The aim was to improve the performance of standing assets on a daily basis, and this goal was achieved. This centre obtained a BREEAM In-Use certificate “Excellent”, which is more than an administrative constraint. It’s a promise to our planet and to future generations. It’s a promise and it results in the fact that since 2006, Toison d’Or cumulated energy savings equivalent to the yearly consumption of 350 households. Inspiring, isn’t it?
