The sustainability strategy of ECE

One of our key tasks in the coming decade will be to take account of future climate policy requirements and thus promote the preservation of real estate values. The sustainability strategy with its fields of action and targets is our basis for this. For us, the focus is on a long-term orientation and the assumption of lasting responsibility. After all, ECE is active as a project developer, but also as a landlord and manager of the real estate locations. In addition to political regulations and investor requirements, we also take into account the expectations of other stakeholders such as tenants, visitors, and our employees. Because the well-being of our employees is also a central component of our actions in order to ensure a healthy and equal climate in our company.

"Sustainability and ESG are essential topics for our further actions. Central building blocks here are our sustainability strategy, clear internal structures and technical expertise, which we are constantly developing to create the next big step toward a CO2-neutral future."

Our fields of action

We have identified relevant company-specific sustainability drivers. In consultation with our stakeholders, six strategic fields of action have emerged for which we have defined targets in the three core areas of "Marketplaces," "Work & Live," and "ECE / Employees" which we review on an ongoing basis and report on transparently.

Innovative projects at the Hamburg ECE Campus

We have set ourselves clear targets for our Hamburg headquarters: By 2030, we want to save 40% of CO2 emissions compared to the base year 2019, increase energy efficiency, and increase the share of renewable energy. We have already done a lot to achieve this: energy-saving buttons at every workplace, the use of motion sensors and LED lighting technology in all corridors, and the introduction of Meteoviva, a sensor-controlled heating system based on weather data. Our suppliers are also to meet revised environmental and social standards in the future.

Anti NOX-Fassade

As market leader for customized real estate concepts and pioneer in sustainable solutions in the development sector, we are testing the world's first nitrogen oxide-binding textile façade on an office building at our ECE campus in Poppenbüttel. Such textile facades can also be easily installed and replaced at a later date on buildings of all types of use.
