Bond With Nature
The lighting at The Yard is impressive in both ways; how it looks, and how it works. The Mall is fully lit by energy-efficient LED lights that have a comparably extended life span, emit the undermost level of heat, and eye-friendly. One other eco-friendly material that is featured widely at The Yard is the durable and weight-bearing Egyptian granite. The proper usage of eco-friendly materials side by side with natural elements like greens and aquatic features blended The Yard with its surroundings in one beautiful natural tableau.
Tenants at The Yard are encouraged and rewarded to domesticate a list of practices focused on boosting the in-venue environmental experience. Retail stores are induced to use recyclable bags and packaging, while restaurants and cafes are motivated to put down single-use tools like drinking straws.

Smoking with all its forms is totally forbidden, cafes and restaurants are not allowed to serve Shisha, another practice that copes with the spread of respiratory diseases in the last decade surged upon the emerge of the coronavirus pandemic.
