Investment Case

Sustainability

In the European real-estate market green building and environmental certifications have become mainstream in the last decade and can have a significant effect on asset values. Building level environmental certifications are also a powerful tool for environmental risk mitigation and management.

Research shows that green building and environmental certifications have a positive effect on tenant wellbeing – an integral part of our client offering and key tenant satisfaction. Improved tenant satisfaction and wellbeing are correlated with tenant retention and building occupancy rates.

At Technopolis, we use proven international frameworks and standards as a basis of our sustainability disclosures and efforts. For example, we use third party verified environmental certifications (LEED, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) in our construction projects and existing buildings.

We aim to focus our sustainability efforts on the items that are most relevant to us, via our Strategic Sustainability Approach. The focus areas – Shared Workspace, Sustainable Efficiency, and Skills and Integrity – all include a set of targets and actions designed to guide the work.
