We Live and Breathe Diversity!
Personal and Cultural Diversity
There is huge potential in diversity. Because bringing personal know-how, diversified skills, and different best practices together will create new solution approaches.
We attach great importance to the diversity of our teams, and promote it on all levels.

Taking New Approaches
ESG-Linked Promissory Note
With the issuance of an ESG-linked promissory note, we are once again engaging in a pioneering effort within our industry.
By linking the interest rates to reliably measurable sustainability metrics , we define concrete guidelines for our investment and refurbishment activities. Our objective is to raise our green building ratio in our own portfolio (Commercial Portfolio) to at least 20% by the end of 2023.
Clearing this mark will bring down the interest rate for subsequent interest rate periods by 5 basis points.
A positive contribution to climate change mitigation will simultaneously lower our finance expense – clearly a win-win arrangement.
