DIC Asset sets itself a clear target – 40% carbon reduction by 2030
Frankfurt am Main, 18 May 2022. DIC Asset AG (“DIC”), ISIN: DE000A1X3XX4, one of Germany’s leading listed property companies, published its Sustainability Report for 2021 today. In its report, the company defines the clear objective of cutting the carbon emissions of its existing portfolio properties (Commercial Portfolio) by 40% until 2030.
“We will prosper as a company if we create values for all of our stakeholder, and this means beyond our reliably and decidedly successful financials. It includes our responsibility towards the society and the world we live in. We have set out a clear goal, and we will let ourselves be judged by it: We intend to cut the carbon emissions of our existing property portfolio by 40%. We have the strength and the know-how to take the lead within our industry in this context. Our business is to create living and working environments for people – and we will conduct this business with an unprecedented sense of responsibility,” commented Sonja Wärntges, CEO of DIC.
The sustainability and alignment of its corporate conduct with the ESG criteria has been part of DIC’s clear mission statement that has guided company decisions and actions for more than ten years now. This latest Sustainability Report outlines the milestones in the implementation of the sustainability strategy achieved so far, documents the company’s successful sustainability ratings, and provides an outlook on additional objectives that DIC will achieve over and above the reduction of carbon emissions in the areas of environment (E), social (S) and governance (G).
The report was prepared in accordance with the standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI standards), and is available at www.dic-asset.de/en/sustainability for downloading. A separate report in accordance with the ESG requirements of the European Public Real Estate Association (EPRA sBPR) is also available there as download.
