Biodiversity is crucial for the proper functioning of the planet, given its fundamental role in ecosystem balance and essential ecosystem services. At FibraShop, we are committed to protecting and preserving the ecosystems in which we operate. We are aware of our role in contributing to a more sustainable and environmentally respectful approach in the shopping mall real estate sector.
To understand the impact of our operations on biodiversity, we assess the distance of each property from Protected Natural Areas (ANP). These areas are managed by the National Commission of Protected Natural Areas (CONANP) and represent geographically protected spaces for conserving their ecosystem services and cultural values.
The following table displays the distance in kilometers of each property to these protected areas, along with their names and details of significance for the state. Currently, 46.49% (607,588 m2) of our total portfolio is located within or adjacent to protected areas.
