Sustainability and forward thinking are in our DNA

Responsible asset management is a top priority at a.s.r. real estate. We believe that we can only guarantee long-term returns if properties are sustainably attractive to users and society. Our focus is therefore on sustainable value development of real estate and agricultural land. This is how we contribute to a viable society – for now and for future generations. To achieve this aim, we focus on four pillars:

Planet: committed to making a positive impact on the climate and society

We want to make a positive impact on nature, society and the climate. We do this by reducing carbon emissions, accelerating the energy transition, reducing waste and water consumption, and developing 'Paris-proof' and climate-adaptive portfolios.

Property: sustainable real estate portfolios

Healthy, viable environments require sustainable real estate. That is why we enhance the level of sustainability in existing real estate to the greatest possible extent, and we set high quality standards for new construction. Sustainability is also reflected in the agricultural land and country estates that we manage where we practice sustainable soil and forest management.

Partners: building long-term relationships with sustainable partners

Corporate social responsibility is not something we do alone. We build long-term relationships with sustainable partners, lessees and leaseholders. This enables us to optimise the quality of use and the sustainability of our real estate and agricultural land. We also aim for satisfied lessees and leaseholders.

People: satisfied employees

We believe it is important to be an attractive employer. We prioritise the well-being of our employees and encourage them to reach their full potential. In addition, we ensure that everyone at a.s.r. real estate is fully committed and aware of their particular role in achieving our CSR objectives.
