Sustainability & ESG
Sustainable Performance of Real Estate Portfolios
ESG requirements, EU-taxonomy, decarbonization and supply uncertainty: the call for a sustainable real estate portfolio challenges real estate management. We help you identify opportunities and challenges, and design and implement strategy to create a sustainable real estate portfolio that supports your long-term success and meets regional ESG requirements.
Transformation pressure in Real Estate Management is on the rise
Rapid changes in socio-economic, legal, and financial frameworks are challenging organizations to adapt. In response, society, politics, individuals, and institutions are increasingly demanding comprehensive management practices that address environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) concerns.
The market is heavily impacted by issues such as climate change, energy policy, and extreme weather conditions. To stay competitive, companies and their portfolios must demonstrate resilience by implementing sustainable solutions.
As real estate experts, we closely observe these changes in the market and society, understand the growing pressure on real estate to become more sustainable, and are well-versed in the increasing regulatory requirements.
Experience and knowledge form the basis for our consulting services.
„Incorporating sustainability into business strategy is non-negotiable in today’s world. Understanding that asset performance and actions along the entire value chain are linked to the goals of environmental, social and corporate sustainability is crucial for the successful implementation of ESG in its entirety.“
Sustainability is becoming a key success factor in entrepreneurial activities
Sustainability has become an increasingly pressing issue, as the current geopolitical situation highlights the ongoing importance of sustainability in the future. The real estate industry has yet to take a leading role in developing and implementing sustainable solutions, but it has the potential to make a significant impact towards achieving the goals set in the Paris Agreement on climate change.
Current Trends to Catch Up With:
Emphasizing Renewable Energies and Energy Independence
Investing in renewable energy sources and energy independence can lead to cost savings and reduced carbon emissions, while also promoting market and supplier autonomy.
Adopting a Circular Economy and Life Cycle Thinking
Instead of resource-intensive construction, the real estate industry should focus on repurposing and recycling existing materials and structures, and considering the entire life cycle of a building.
Prioritizing Biodiversity and Water Conservation
Ensuring the preservation of natural resources and biodiversity is an essential aspect of ecological sustainability strategies in real estate management.
Incorporating Climate Risk Management
Changes in weather patterns, impending rental bans or redevelopment constraints present financial risks that must be identified, assessed and effectively managed.
Focusing on the Needs of People
Real estate management must adapt to the changing needs of its users, including hybrid working, enhanced space quality, multifunctional areas, and user-oriented amenities.
Investing in Impact
Growing demand for sustainable and socially responsible products calls for new business models that prioritize the creation of positive social and environmental impact.
Enhancing Transparency through Digitalization
New reporting requirements and the need to disclose ESG-relevant key figures require accurate management and transparency of ESG data through the use of digital tools and platforms.
Keeping up with Compliance and Regulation
Increasing requirements from EU regulations, compliance, governance, and customer expectations are changing the scope of management tasks and require organizations to stay up-to-date with the latest regulations and compliance standards.
