To have a positive impact on society and the environment
We are part of a family enterprise that cares deeply about the people and communities it serves. For this reason, at Redevco, we strive to have a lasting positive impact on society and the environment. It’s in our way of doing things.
The built environment is responsible for more than 30% of global energy consumption. This includes real estate in urban areas, in which Redevco operates. We have a responsibility to find solutions and reduce carbon emissions and believe that we can make a significant impact by improving the environmental performance of our assets under management.
We have committed to making our entire portfolio Net Zero Carbon by 2040, which we call ‘Mission 2040’. Our Mission aligns with the World Green Building Council’s definition of Net Zero Carbon (NZC), which states that buildings should be highly energy efficient and fully powered from on-site and/or off-site renewable energy sources.
Whilst the footprint of our assets under management has a significantly larger impact on the environment, we also consider the footprint of our own internal operations. These CO2 emissions come primarily from the energy use of our offices, air travel and emissions from company cars. If we want to inspire our client investors and our tenants to join the movement so we can limit our emissions together, we need to lead by example in our own operations and show that every bit counts.
Investing responsibly and wanting to contribute to create a sustainable world is a crucial part of our business. Redevco wants to lead by example and show our industry what it means to act responsibly. That is why we created a dedicated sustainability platform where we discuss and track our progress, share information and knowledge and highlight our partnerships as this is a journey we are undertaking together.
