Sustainability

Sustainability

In the international GRESB survey, our company was chosen as the most sustainable real estate company in Europe in our peer group and a Sector Leader in sustainable development.

For us, being a forerunner also means sustainability. We want to move the entire industry forward by creating new practices and encouraging our stakeholders to implement sustainable ways of working.

However, our most important job is to create additional value for our customers through sustainability – and we can also help your company convert office spaces from an expense to a competitive advantage.

Why do our actions matter?

How will our sustainability benefit you?

Sustainability is co-operation – objectives are only reached by setting common goals and working towards them.

01

Smaller carbon footprint

Selecting energy-efficient properties and the ecological use of office space are among the most significant ways in which a company can affect the size of its carbon footprint and contribute to mitigating climate change.

02

Significant cost savings

Our energy efficiency schemes help you optimise the energy consumption of your premises and maximise the savings you make. Our new office spaces always have at least 20% better energy efficiency than is required in building regulations.

03

Sustainable brand value

Our environmental partnership programmes help you implement sustainable values in your corporate culture. You premises will provide you with sustainability data that you can use to communicate your environmental actions to your stakeholders.

04

Ecological transport

Travelling to our properties located in traffic hubs and close to extensive services is easy and ecological. Our coworking spaces help optimise the travel of your stakeholders and remote workers, too.

05

Health and wellbeing

Sustainably designed and ergonomic office spaces promote the wellbeing of your personnel and customers. Smart property automation guarantees optimal working conditions every hour of the day and every day of the year.

06

Solutions for the future

You can utilise the latest IoT technology in our property development and renovation projects. All of our property development projects with parking facilities come with the option of recharging stations for electric cars and renewable energy solutions.
