Sustainability at Implenia reflected in new ESG ratings

AAA in MSCI ESG ratings confirms Implenia’s position as industry leader on environmental, social and governance matters | Real Estate Products wins Circular Globe Label

Glattpark (Opfikon), 20 December 2022 – MSCI ESG Research has once again awarded Implenia its AAA ESG Rating. This confirms Implenia’s position as industry leader in the field of environment, social and governance matters. In 2021, Implenia became the first company in the MSCI Construction & Engineering Index to receive the highest possible rating. MSCI ESG Research provides in-depth research, assessment and analysis relating to the ESG-related activities of thousands of companies around the world.

“Winning MSCI’s AAA rating for ESG again is further vindication of all our different sustainability efforts,” says André Wyss, CEO. “As a leading construction and real estate services company, our goal is to help shape our industry’s approach to sustainability. With our twelve ambitious sustainability targets for 2025, we have set our own clear guidelines for implementation.”

As well as this award for the Group as a whole, the Real Estate Products business unit has received the Circular Globe label – a first for the real estate sector. The development of standardised real estate products based on circular economy principals was given the “Advanced” label by rating agency SQS. This is a significant improvement for the new business unit compared with last year’s pilot assessment. The label is valid until 2025 and covers the entire range of Real Estate Products services.
