Vision of responsible property management

Our vision includes a sustainable approach to the environment, as well as proper consideration of our social and economic responsibilities to the community. Optimising the sustainability potential in our property developments through responsible design initiatives along the entire life cycle, positions a property well to minimise its environmental impacts and provide long-term benefits for customers and the local community.

Our principles are:

  • Sustainability assessment of properties we buy, develop and operate
  • Extend durability and functionality of our properties
  • Minimise negative environmental impacts (CO2 emissions) and reduce the energy and water intensity
  • Engaging in an open and honest dialogue with our stakeholders
  • Our vision shall be in line with the Swiss energy strategy (Energiestrategie 2050)
