Sustainable action is of central importance to us and is therefore an integral part of our corporate strategy. Our commitment is to designing sustainable real estate that is a valuable investment over its life cycle. To this end, we have set ourselves high ethical, social, environmental and corporate goals and are a certified member of the ICG as well as a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) promoted by the United Nations.
In our investment decisions, we pay particular attention to the energy efficiency of the properties and their socially responsible urban development: It is an integral part of our acquisition process to check whether development projects qualify for certification. In addition, the energy consumption of the properties is recorded and validated as part of the operational process, and measures to increase energy efficiency are identified.
We also attach importance to the use of renewable and durable (construction) materials in development projects wherever possible.
