BUILDING FUTURE CITIES
Building future cities doesn’t always mean more buildings. On the contrary, space is often limited. Therefore, it’s mainly about managing existing assets more efficiently and effectively. Addressing the embodied carbon in building materials and present in the building process is vital. After all, this amounts to 11% of global emissions.*
Future cities are also not just about having the latest technology and digital know-how. It’s about reducing carbon emissions, helping create safe and social places to get together and live prosperous, happy lives. It’s about making cities more resilient to future environmental, social and technological changes. This is more than just improving the communities that live or work in one of our assets. Rather it’s about supporting and sustaining the wider community for the long term.
That's why we are providing the capital to develop sustainable urban ecosystems to unlock the associated financial and social benefits. Investing in future cities is a smart decision driven by our environmental, social and governance values and goals that underpin what we do and why we do it. We’re reimagining and repurposing Brussels’ landmark office building, The Louise, to meet the needs of a post-pandemic workforce.
We’re stripping down the facade and technical installations but maintaining the superstructure and concrete slab – saving around 8,500 tons of embodied carbon. This reduces the carbon footprint by 50%, compared to an average office build of the same size. We’re also recycling all materials where possible, saving a further 1,500 tons of carbon emissions. The project will also create 1,500 square metres of new green space. Smart systems will run all of The Louise’s mechanical, electrical, plumbing and security functions. This will reduce energy consumption to 90 kilowatts (kW) per square metre, compared to 200 kW per square meter.
FUELLING FUTURE CITY OUTCOME
We’re totally invested in driving future cities forward. We have invaluable on the ground investment expertise and highly valued innovation partnerships.

Sustainability is at the heart of every future city. Continuous growth but always keeping an eye of energy-efficiency and low greenhouse gas emissions is the future proof design that benefits tenants, our clients and us.
All our investment practice aligns directly with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We’ve also devised on our own PATRIZIA Sustainability Strategy which will actively help to protect the environment.
