Good governance, compliance, and risk management are an integral part of a transparent and sustainable approach, as well as being the foundation of good business ethics. Our Code of Conduct governs the group policy framework and defines our responsibilities and how we work.
We follow several international declarations, conventions, standards, and guidelines. These include the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Fundamental Conventions of the International Labor Organization (ILO), the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and the UN Global Compact. Additionally, we are signatories of the UN Principles on Responsible Investments (UNPRI).
Most importantly, we continue to build our group and the products we offer based on environmental, social and governance aspects and thus grow and integrate sustainability into our business offering and processes. Our goals are:
Ensure the integration of ESG perspectives in property management, conversion and transactions
Counteract corruption and protect customer privacy
Ensure a sustainable supply chain
