Kick off meeting in Krakow

DSCN4108The kick off meeting of the GreenStore V4 project  in Krakow took place 05-06.02.2015 at the headquarters of the Polish partner, FPDS.

The aim of the just started GreenStore V4 project is to promote sustainable lifestyles and further the competitiveness of the Visegrad countries by integrating sustainability into retail and hospitality practices with eco-standards. Green-store standard is available for stores, cafés, hotels and means commitment to the continuous improvement of environmental performance. Green-stores reduce energy-(heating, cooling, lighting) and water use, implement green procurement, sell green (ecolabelled) products, have selective waste collecting methods.

At the kick-off meeting the project partners introduced their organization and expert fields to each other, and planned the activities of the following months of the project.

The sustainability manager of IKEA Poland held a webinar from Warsaw in which she introduced the polish green store standard and their sustainability activities.
