“The building sector is responsible for around 39 percent of CO2 emissions worldwide. Reason enough to develop smart, effective and efficient solutions for climate-friendly value creation in the short term and use them in the long term.”

Sven Grönwoldt
Team Leader Sustainability & ESG Consulting, JLL

“Immobilien, vor allem im Bestand, spielen bei der Erreichung der internationalen Klimaschutzziele eine Schlüsselrolle. Zukunftsgerichtetes Handeln braucht Ideenreichtum, Inspiration und die Kooperation zwischen PropTechs und Corporates – nur dann kann die Transformation gemeinsam gelingen.”

Julia Taeschner
Group Sustainability Officer, Director Investor Relations, Aareal Bank AG

“Die Umweltwirkungen von Immobilien zu minimieren ist eine der zentralen Herausforderungen unserer Zeit. In Feldern wie der Effizienzsteigerung, der Nutzung erneuerbarer Energien und der Kreislaufwirtschaft schlummern noch erhebliche Potentiale und Synergien, die unter anderem durch Digitalisierung weiter ausgeschöpft und erschlossen werden können. Außerdem braucht es dafür eines: neue Innovationen!”

Dr. Jörg Schlenger
Manager, Energy & Sustainability, Drees & Sommer
