The earth’s resources are only available to humankind to a limited extent, yet they are being consumed at a faster rate than at any other time in our history. Sustainability has a bearing on all areas of life and is frequently associated with the environmental aspect of the term. This aspect is especially relevant to Volkswagen Immobilien because the building sector is responsible for around 40% of energy consumption and roughly 30% of national carbon dioxide emissions. Equally indispensable to us, however, are social and governance aspects, not least because they play a role in shaping our corporate culture and strategy and help to determine our day-to-day business activities.
At Volkswagen Immobilien, we are convinced that sustainable activities covering all three aspects of sustainability are essential to the future viability of our company, but also to our coming generations.
