With the aim of increasing the sustainability and energy efficiency of the Centre, 2,645 photovoltaic panels were installed in the car park between the Shopping Center and the Retail Park, occupying a surface area of approximately 5,500 m2 and generating clean energy of 1,356.12 Mwh per year with a maximum power of 1,084.45 kWp.
An investment that not only reduces carbon emissions, but also demonstrates I Gigli’s commitment to providing a better environment for the community and future generations.
Waste reduction - CIBO2
In I Gigli no food is wasted! The Shopping Centre, in collaboration with Food Bank, tackles food waste with a programme to recover surplus food from bars, restaurants and the hypermarket. A virtuous circle through which food is immediately redistributed to partner facilities providing food to the least fortunate while ensuring high standards of hygiene and safety.

Each bin is equipped with sensors that help you separate waste efficiently and responsibly.
