Sustainable Cities and Communities
reflects the core of real asset
We invest in cities and developments to
create inclusive, safe, resilient, and
sustainable communities. Having started
off with ground-up development and
management of residential real estate,
we’ve focused on healthy communities
since the very beginning.
When we invest or develop, we aim to
fulfil this human need for community and
maintain it for the long-term.
Affordable and Clean Energy
are fundamental to create sustainable
cities and communities.
Reducing dependence of fossil fuels is a
vitalfor the environment as it is for society.
As such, SDG 7 Renewable Energy is
pivotal to our purpose of Building
Communities & Sustainable Futures.
In alignment with the sub-targets of SDG
7, we aim to increase the percentage of
renewable energy used in our portfolio
(target 7.2 Increase Global Percentage of
Renewable Energy), by both purchasing
green energy and by generating
renewable energy on-site.
PATRIZIA commits to actively contribute
to the overall goal of the UN Sustainability
Development Goals (SDGs) to create a better
future for all. The SDGs are a universal
set of goals, targets and indicators for global
development that are very important
guidelines for the PATRIZIA Sustainability
Strategy and the Group’s understanding
what responsible practices are.
While supporting the SDGs in their entirety,
PATRIZIA has identified the following SDGs as
primarily relevant and closest to the Group’s
values and will proceed to include these in
corporate and fund specific sustainability
strategies. In addition, specific funds target
additional SDGs in their sustainability
