The construction of new buildings is done according to high sustainability standards and contractors are required whenever possible, to implement and use processes aimed at reducing CO2 emission and improving recycling. In renovations, we use local and/or certified materials. In general, water, energy and electric performance and savings (Minergie and Microgrid certifications) are taken into account.  E.g. one of our construction sites is a certified 2000 Watt area, an association which combines the national efficiency guidelines for energy with the Paris Climate Agreement 2015. An inter-generational mix with families and seniors is favored, facilitating social contacts, security and help.

09.3. Additional information. [Optional]

As this is the first reporting period for our company, we are still partly in the process of setting our targets and reflecting on how to monitor them. A lot of targets are in place but it stays difficult to concretely measure the progresses we make.

Generally, the housing standards in Switzerland where all of our assets are located are high. This allows us to have rather high goals when it comes to the development of environmentally saving measures in our Real Estate assets. Nevertheless, we constantly look to further improve our building standards.

All of our developments and major renovation already have a good ESG performance. In our development project, water and energy efficiency is always required. We also install solar panels for the production renewable energy. We use certified and sustainable construction materials like wood and paintings without solvent as much as possible. Our managers and contractors have been given the task to drive improvements in property sustainability performance and we ask them to comply with sustainable guidelines. As an asset management company, we have a fiduciary duty and are interested in an economic benefit. Many ESG issues have a positive impact on our investment performance: the selection of assets in proximity to urban centers and energy saving methods when constructing/renovating, greening roofs and parks etc. attract tenants and lower the risk of vacancy. Furthermore, we feel that the awareness for ESG is also rising on the investor site.

Next year, our organisation wants to coordinate with real estate managers for the publication of sustainability guidelines for tenants containing information on waste minimisation, energy and water efficiency. Furthermore, we plan to organize visits and events to raise our tenants awareness for waste separation and minimisation.

However, as the majority of our property types are residential  it is very difficult to ensure that the tenants understand the sustainability attributes of the buildings.
