CSR - ASR Dutch Core Residential Fund

undefinedThe primary aim of the ASR Dutch Core Residential Fund’s CSR policy is sound asset management. To this end, the fund aims to facilitate the interests of tenants and investors as best as possible by creating homes that have long-term value from both a financial and a social perspective. To tenants, the attraction of sustainable homes are the lower energy costs and a healthy indoor climate. To investors, sustainable homes are attractive thanks to the creation of value in the longer term and hence a risk reduction. Sustainability properties ensure continuity and stability. And, last but not least, sustainable homes place less of a burden on the environment.

Our CSR policy is based on four key pillars, the four Ps: Property, People, Partners and Planet. This means that, in our efforts to achieve a sustainable property portfolio, we seek to build long-term relationships with sustainable partners. We are also looking to make an active contribution ourselves to society and the environment. For details on how we go about doing this, please refer to the CSR policy ASR DCRF 2020 - 2022Each P has a strategic objective. The CSR annual report describes the results of the strategic objectives.
