The real estate sector alone is responsible for more than a third of CO2 emissions and 50 percent of resource consumption. We have a social responsibility to provide affordable housing, livable cities, and functional infrastructure. We drive sustainability, along with digital transformation to enable important innovations. In addition to climate protection, we have increased our involvement in social projects. Our long-term goal is to be a beneficial company, which means in addition to its success as a business, also benefits the environment and society.
