With regard to each of these pillars, Fashion Arena Prague Outlet undertakes a large number of projects that monitor, for example, the use of rainwater from the retention reservoir or the installation of photovoltaics for partial self-sufficiency in electricity coverage. The outlet centre receives clean “green electricity” from Norwegian wind power plants and then charges electric vehicles from a new “Hypercharger” charging station in its parking lot.
In addition to larger projects, the outlet centre also monitors smaller ones, including its employees’ approach to ecology. These include, for example, replacing all cleaning products with environmentally friendly ones or building compost for restaurant waste. Among others is the installation of a bug house created by children from the children’s home Klokánek in Prague’s district of Štěrboholy, where Fashion Arena is located. The outlet centre has been supporting Klokánek for a long time, also, for example, collecting used clothes for children living there. On various occasions and sales events, the passage also offers a food truck with food and drink from Gule sheltered workshop.
Projects lined up for the near future include, for example, elimination of single-use plastics by the end of this June, or the support of the International Recycling Day, which is marked on 18 March. As part of this, AVE company will place their waste truck in the Fashion Arena and set up a stand to sort waste and run workshop activities for children. Another similar event is World Forestry Day, celebrated on 21 March. The outlet centre will commemorate it already on 19 March by planting field groves in the Prague Slivenec district as their team building activity. In the near future, the area behind the Fashion Arena building should become home to bee colonies, as part of the upcoming planting of a new meadow with willows and fruit trees.
