We take responsibility


Sustainable action is of central importance to us and is therefore an integral part of our corporate strategy. We consistently align our business activities with long-term value creation. The basis for this is a holistic sustainability strategy. After all, we want to take responsibility for the society in which we do business: For our employees, for the properties we develop and manage, for the cities in which we operate, and for the efficient and careful use of the resources we deploy.

Alexander Otto, CEO

"Achieving the EU's climate targets is an important goal for the entire real estate industry. It is our will to develop socially just solutions for this. We therefore follow a holistic sustainability strategy and have firmly anchored ESG criteria in our corporate culture."

The ECE sustainability strategy 

The Green Deal aims to make Europe the world's first climate-neutral continent by 2050. For us, one thing is clear: ESG (Environmental Social Governance) is a central component of our business activities. We have been pursuing a holistic sustainability strategy for years and have made ESG criteria a fixed anchor of our corporate culture. The focus is on six fields of action that cover the entire ECE Group: Energy, Resources, Sustainable Mobility, Wellbeing, Employees, and Sustainable Trends.

Commitments and awards

To demonstrate the quality of our buildings in terms of sustainability aspects, we rely on recognized green building certification systems and a voluntary commitment to sustainable corporate management. These include the seal of approval of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB), which is aimed at both new and existing buildings. In addition, we certify existing buildings and buildings in other European countries in accordance with the BREEAM and LEED certification standards. All these certifications are internationally established for evaluating sustainable construction and the optimization of existing properties and are a yardstick for our sustainable actions.
