“ ESG DOES NOT MEAN A COMPROMISE ON RETURNS, IT IS RATHER A TOOL THAT PROTECTS RETURNS, AND ADDS ANOTHER DIMENSION TO RISK ASSESSMENT”
INCORPORATION OF THE LATEST ENERGY-SAVING STANDARDS
In the area of land development, the planning concepts for new buildings aim to incorporate the latest energy-saving standards and are based, among other things, on KFW 55. The goal of being at least 10% below the current energy standard requirements (GEG) is achieved by optimizing the technical building equipment and the selection of heating systems. Depending on local conditions, geothermal energy, district heating or photovoltaics are planned into the energy supply. Where already relevant in early planning, planning focuses on environmentally friendly and recycled building materials. The aim is to achieve material savings of 10% through optimized load-bearing structures and the composition of ceilings and walls, taking into account social aspects such as sound insulation. Furthermore, no halogenated organic compounds, e.g. in floor coatings or harmful coolants, are used in the planning. In addition, concept planning is aimed at avoiding unnecessary soil sealing and creating green spaces, including on roofs.
