An integral part of our corporate culture
The topic of "sustainability" concerns companies all over the world. It has long since become one of the most important factors in the real estate market: Sustainable investments have become an integral part of the industry.
At Catella Real Estate AG, sustainability has been an integral part of the corporate culture from the very beginning. Since the launch of the first sustainable fund "SSP - Sarasin Sustainable Properties" by Catella in 2011 in cooperation with Bank J. Safra Sarasin AG, sustainable property management has been an integral part of our investment philosophy. Another sustainability fund was launched the following year in the form of the "CMS - Catella Multitenant Stiftungsfonds".
A staff position for sustainability, which was set up in 2015, ensures the continuous expansion of expertise in this area both within and outside the company. In this context, Catella Real Estate AG developed its own sustainability monitoring system, which has been successfully applied to selected real estate funds since 2017 - for the first time with the launch of the open-ended public real estate AIF "KCD-Catella Nachhaltigkeit Immobilien Deutschland". This sustainability monitor (see below) can also be fully implemented for individual mandates.
Scope Award Sustainability 2020
Catella Real Estate AG has received the renowned Scope Award 2020 in the category Sustainability together with the Swiss bank J. Safra Sarasin Ltd. This means that the companies beat out renowned competitors. Catella's sustainability concept, which has been continuously developed since its foundation, and the close cooperation with J. Safra Sarasin Ltd. in the field of sustainable real estate since 2011 have now been honoured with the award.
German Sustainability Code "DNK" (Deutscher Nachhaltigkeits Kodex)
Catella Real Estate AG has issued its first declaration of compliance with the German Sustainability Code (DNK) for the 2018 reporting year, with the aim of increasing transparency towards our stakeholders and establishing regular sustainability reporting at company level.
