Focus on sustainability and climate considerations
We have a strong focus on sustainability and climate considerations in our property investments, and the climate goal of the Paris Agreement is integrated in our investment process. We are working systematically on compiling consumption and energy data from our Danish property portfolio with a view to reducing our carbon footprint. We also strive to build and renovate in accordance with sustainable and environmentally-friendly standards – among other things, we screen all new constructions to make sure that they qualify for a sustainability certification (DGNB certification). As a member of the Green Building Council Denmark, we share our experience in measuring and reducing our carbon footprint for the benefit of a wider community.
