70 percent of global CO2 emissions and 80 percent of energy demand are generated in urban areas. And the real estate industry plays a significant role in this development. As a real estate developer and investor, we want to make an active contribution on the way to a sustainable, resource-conserving and livable environment.
The engineering firms we commission provide valuable and innovative input, which we jointly implement in our planning and construction phases.
For us, the focus of sustainable real estate management is also on social and demand-oriented housing. Thus, in our investments and developments, we pay attention to flexible and low-barrier building structures and a balanced housing mix in an environment characterized by diverse uses. The provision of affordable housing and social tenant management are just as much a part of social housing provision as housing solutions for single-person households, families, older people or people with special needs. In Hamburg, we have also been helping to provide housing for refugees from all over the world in our new construction projects for years.
Living and working together with the associated services, and the provision of everyday necessities in our residential quarters, creates short distances and CO2 savings.
