We are aware of our responsibilities as Germany’s market leader for sustainable investments. As well as the comprehensive integration of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) aspects into our investment process, we want to play a role in making our future sustainable by steadily stepping up our engagement activities and collaborative work.
Real estate accounts for 40 per cent of the total annual demand for energy and commodities. At the same time, the world population is growing and urbanisation is intensifying. Investment in innovative technologies will play a crucial part in overcoming these challenges as the fate of a climate-neutral future will be decided primarily in our cities.
Manufacturing processes will change radically over the next 20 years as a result of automation and digitalisation. This will give rise to entirely new areas of business and innovations for a more sustainable future.
Technological innovation, the growing interconnectedness of different areas of life and greater efforts to protect our climate will change the structure of our transport system and business fields in the industry.
Modern technologies such as smart grids and smart meters can harmonise energy supply and energy demand in an efficient and intelligent manner. This will help to conserve resources.
We firmly believe that the shift towards greater sustainability presents concrete investment opportunities. Our sustainability experts discuss the opportunities of change: Smart City, Smart Energy, Smart Mobility and Smart Factory.

In addition, we are promoting the transformation towards a more sustainable economy through our engagement activities, our membership in organisations and our participation in initiatives.
