Green buildings

Gaining certification for a large number of our fund properties is an important part of our commitment to sustainability.

This focus on sustainability in the building sector is based on a comprehensive approach to the property life cycle using environmentally friendly technologies while ensuring profitability at all times. In this context, property sustainability certificates allow compliance with sustainability criteria to be measured and compared in accordance with nationally established and internationally recognised certification systems. These systems include the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM), Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) and the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB).
