Corporate Social Responsibility

Life is what we make it

Sustainability has become one of the biggest topics in our industry - if not the biggest and, above all, the most decisive. Because real estate can make a particularly huge contribution here if it is built with appropriate materials, managed with smart-innovative technology and used efficiently. But our responsibility does not stop outside a building’s walls. Especially as part of an industry that uses, develops and changes space, it is incumbent on us to preserve our environment, its diversity and resources, and to take responsibility for our society. Because all of this is the basis for the well-being of future generations.

Global corporate social responsibility

Only those who define clear goals can also achieve anything. We are guided by the Paris Climate Agreement and are part of the Science Based Target Initiative. By 2025, we want to have reduced the CO2 emissions of our offices by 50% and also jointly define targets for the properties of our largest clients. By 2050, we want to have achieved net zero emissions.
