Green buildings - certification strategy for our existing buildings

Certifications according to recognised standards demonstrate the quality of our properties under transparent sustainability criteria.

We have been pursuing a certification strategy for our existing buildings since 2010. Certifications allow us to continuously identify optimisation potential in and on our properties and to systematically incorporate this into our action planning. The results are impressive: Today we have one of the highest certification rates (in relation to market value) in the market. However, instead of resting on our laurels, we remain committed to pursuing our certification strategy.
