ESG – 
the sign of the future

Sustainability is a primary concern for the ABG Real Estate Group. We consistently focus on the long-term utility of the building for both people and the ecosystem. All our decisions and business dealings are governed by ESG criteria.

ESG describes the three sustainability-related areas of corporate responsibility: environment, social and governance.

The ABG Real Estate Group sees it as its responsibility to create sustainable values for the future of all its buildings, and to achieve reliable economic growth in co-operation with capital providers and institutional investors.

This is of benefit to all participants in the long term: clients, investors, tenants, society and the environment.

We are happy to shoulder the responsibility we owe to society as project developer and investment and asset manager.

Our partnership with Arabesque, the leading company in the field of digitalisation and ESG-compliance, combines our collective expertise to drive the primary future topic of ESG in the construction and real estate sectors. Arabesque is one of the leading providers of ESG data in the financial services sector and helps to make the sustainability of companies transparent by the use of AI and big data.

ABG is a member of numerous initiatives such as ECORE, DGNB, the Bundesstiftung Baukultur and the Deutsches Institut für Stadtbaukunst, which work together to promote sustainability in the real estate industry. We are also committed to complying with the recognised sustainability standards of the UN PRI (Principles for Responsible Investment).
