Environmental example 3, description

          ASR Dutch Mobility Office Fund: objective: Invest in mobility hubs and encourage use of public transport
Given the Fund’s focus on mobility hubs, it is clear that users of its office buildings already have an incentive to
travel to work by public transport. By offering a wide network of office locations close to mobility hubs, the Fund
is contributing to more environmentally friendly forms of commuting. The Fund recognises that tenants located
at mobility hubs also benefit from easy access to several modes of transportation. For this reason, the Fund is
investing in sustainable mobility, such as car and (electric) bike-sharing initiatives at acquisitions projects.
