Sustainability

Securing future viability is a top priority for the Civitas Property Group.

Corporate responsibility – our company activities are centred around sustainability, which is the fundamental principle ensuring our economic success.

Economic sustainability – sustainability is at the forefront of our thinking throughout the entire lifecycle of a property including planning, construction, operation and use. Our objective is to create attractive living space for our tenants, in order to improve the quality of life and satisfaction of our occupiers. For us, this means the responsible use of existing resources to ensure sustainable value creation and the simultaneous optimisation of rental income.

Ecological sustainability – as a residential property portfolio owner, we understand that sustainable conduct is a principal requirement of our daily operations, in particular as it affects the environment. Our projects reflect our considerate treatment of the environment and we attempt to optimise our buildings over the long-term from an ecological standpoint in order to make a positive contribution to both the environment and society. We are convinced that the responsible and sustainable treatment of resources will contribute to our company’s economic success.

Social sustainability – our respectful, equitable and value-based company structure makes it possible for us to consider the individual requirements of our team members, which in turn promotes their motivation, productivity and enthusiasm and improves the satisfaction of business partners, thus distinguishing us from our competitors.
