Sustainability ReportDIC Asset AG has been continuously reporting on its sustainability activities since 2009. Since March 2011 this has been done in the form of a stand-alone sustainability report, to give appropriate scope to the growing importance of sustainability within our company.

The report supplements our financial reporting by adding valuable extra information on our company and by enhancing the transparency.


With this sixth edition of our Sustainability Report, we continue our steady efforts to professionalise our reporting. Naturally, we apply the new GRI Standards framework of the Global Reporting Initiative.


The reporting criteria identified by the European Public Real Estate Association (EPRA) for sustainability reports were also taken into account.

Our sustainability strategy

As one of Germany's leading listed real estate companies, DIC Asset AG is committed to the three-pillar model of sustainable development: To ensure its long-term success, the company's senior management takes environmental and social aspects into account in addition to economic aspects.


Our sustainability strategy focuses on identifying, monitoring and possibly mitigating the adverse consequences of our business activities under any of these three aspects. The active communication with our tenants, business partners, employees, investors and occupiers plays a key role in this context. For it is the cultivation of lasting stakeholder relationships, characterised by integrity and reciprocity, that enables us to define our priorities when seeking the most effective ways to handle new challenges and opportunities.


In our corporate decisions and processes, we take environmental and social requirements into account and, wherever possible, forego the opportunities for short-term gains in favour of the continuous optimisation of our business practices.
