9. Innovation and infrastructure
As a major property owner in Europe, Cofinimmo endeavours to be a visionary and to stimulate the debate on future real estate needs. It does its utmost to integrate major societal trends into its strategy to avoid the accelerated obsolescence of buildings and to preserve economic sustainability. Innovative solutions are therefore a must to create new growth opportunities and ensure the sustainability of the current portfolio.
11. Sustainable cities and communities
For a building to be attractive, it must be accessible. However, increasing vehicle traffic is making city travel more difficult and it creates discomfort for residents through increased air pollution and noise. This is why many European countries have implemented a Low Emission Zone (LEZ) in major cities over the past few years.
13. Climate action
In Europe, the real estate sector is responsible for 40 % of CO2 emissions. In view of this fact, Cofinimmo wishes to limit the emissions resulting from the operation of the buildings in its portfolio. As such, their energy performance must be optimal.
