As a leading construction and real estate services company, we are helping shape our industry’s approach to sustainability. We are well aware of the great impact the industry has on the environment, society and the economy, which is why sustainability is one of our five Corporate Values.
We have set ourselves ambitious sustainability goals for 2025 and are constantly striving to achieve them. We show our customers the benefits of sustainable construction and are able to implement more and more projects in line with sustainability standards. At Group level, we are targeting net zero by 2050. To help us achieve this goal, we are working on an advanced decarbonisation strategy for our development portfolio – at the overall portfolio and individual property level. We train our employees on sustainability topics through the Sustainability Academy, which was launched in 2022. And in the effort to establish a sustainable supply chain, we continuously refine the standards we require of our business partners.
Our efforts are paying off: In the ESG ratings provided by Sustainalytics and MSCI, we are listed as an industry leader, while EcoVadis raised us to Gold status in 2022.
We have a social responsibility to contribute to real change – which we have to do anyway if we want to remain a viable business. Thanks to the experts we have in the company, we are at the forefront of shaping our industry in a sustainable way.
I feel very motivated to continue on this path alongside the Implenia team, our customers and investors.
