Torre Diagonal Mar property, located at Josep Pla 2 street in Barcelona and owned by Union Investment Real Estate GmbH has managed to improve its qualification obtained in the "BREEAM In Use" certification, which endorses the most sustainable and environmentally friendly buildings. the most important recognition for an office building for environmental and sustainability reasons. 

Specifically, the unbeatable building managed by Cushman & Wakefield has obtained a rating of "Very good" for the building (from the "Good" above) and "Excellent" in management (from the "Very Good" above), improving to both cases the level of certification obtained 3 years ago.

This upgrading is the result of investment in solar thermal capture systems, monitoring and intelligent management and improvements in the efficiency of facilities such as lighting, air conditioning, irrigation systems and water consumption. These reforms carried out in the building have resulted in savings of more than 28% in energy consumption of the building, as well as better management of resources and facilities.

Diagonal Mar Tower thus enters the select and small group of buildings that have BREEAM In Use rating "Very Good" for the building and "Excellent" in management, among which are Sant Cugat Nord, Illacuna or Torre Titan.

The building marketed by Cushman & Wakefield also has the "LEED EBOM" rating since the end of 2016, and was once the first in Spain to have both environmental certifications aimed at evaluating the operation of buildings (BREEAM in USO and LEED EBOM). Torre Diagonal Mar has 22,000 m2 spread over 14 floors.
