We strongly believe we must take responsibility for the environmental, social and governance matters we influence. Therefore in 2021 we implemented an ESG policy that is an integral part of our business strategy and sets the framework and goals for our investment decisions and operations. It allows us to comprehensively assess our influence on the environment and manage the impact we have on the planet and people.

  • Challenges of the modern world such as: global warming, environmental pollution, water shortages, biodiversity decline, waste management, civilisation diseases and health crises, inequality and many others
  • Expectations of our stakeholders, who demand responsibility and transparency from their business partners
  • Requirements of the sustainable financing market


through transparency

Interactions with various stakeholders require us to establish transparent rules for managing business relationships.

Therefore we transparently communicate matters important to us to build trust in relationship with our stakeholders.


Good corporate governance incorporating non-financial aspects into business strategy and decision-making is an essential part of our ESG approach.

We are developing forward thinking and resilient organisation to create value in sustainable manner.

for everyone

Offices and shopping centres managed by us are open and accessible to everyone. Inclusion through access to EPP spaces allows all our visitors, tenants and communities to interact socially. At the same time, we focus on creating a working environment where everyone is treated equally, personal development is supported, and employees are encouraged to express their opinions.

We promote an attitude of inclusiveness to create a space accessible to people with diverse needs where everyone can feel comfortable.


Dynamic climate change and a growing number of initiatives and regulations to limit it, are driving companies to pay attention to the impact they have on the environment. At the same time, customers, tenants and business partners expect buildings to be even more eco-friendly. There is also growing interest in investing in real estate that do not pollute the environment.

Being aware of the real estate sector’s impact on the environment and climate, we have set ourselves tangible decarbonisation targets and actions that bring us closer to achieving climate neutrality. However, to ensure that the steps we have defined are ambitious and achievable, we have joined the SBTi initiative and submitted our greenhouse gas emission targets to external verification – more information here.

We are also committed to enhancing biodiversity around the properties we manage – more information here.
