REWE Green Building – the Future Concept (a new generation of carbon neutral sustainable green supermarkets)

4 Green Architecture Ltd. has designed the new generation of carbon neutral green building supermarkets.

An initiative of 4 Green Architecture Ltd.

Overview of the project

The project consists in the design and realisation of the new generation of carbon neutral green building supermarkets. This is now a roll-out and scalable investor model for carbon neutral sustainable green building supermarkets with energy efficiency and renewables, circular economy, cost effectiveness and CSR. This new generation of green supermarkets is even built with wood – saving 435 tons of CO2 due to the choise of wood from sustainable forestry and wood based building materials.
