At PATRIZIA, we recognize that responsible sustainable practices and investments go hand in hand. With the vast and complex global challenges that we face in terms of ESG, our commitment to corporate responsibility is at the forefront of our actions. To ensure we meet this responsibility to the best of our ability, we have set ourselves ambitious long-term sustainability goals, which are as follows:
Sustainability is about taking actions
that create positive impact both
today and in the future. Real assets
play a pivotal role in society. Across
residential, commercial, logistics,
and infrastructure they serve basic
human needs such as housing,
workspaces, healthcare, energy,
connectivity, and transportation.
The impact we have as the real
assets industry – both on the natural
environment and the people that live
within it – cannot be downplayed or
¹ As defined in the PATRIZIA Impact Investing policy, which broadly aligns to Article 9 of the EU Sustainable Finance
Disclosure Regulation (2019/2088) and equivalents in other jurisdictions.
² Includes operational emissions and embodied carbon for new developments and major refurbishments,
excluding the ‘sunk’ embodied carbon of the standing portfolio. Further details of the commitment, including a
granular breakdown of the scope of the target, can be found in the PATRIZIA Net Zero Carbon Strategy paper.
Achieve net zero carbon ²
across our corporate
operations and real asset
portfolio by 2040 or earlier,

execute as fast as external and
our stakeholder requirements

Net Zero Carbon
While the transition to a low carbon
economy will undoubtedly present
challenges, we believe that a
proactive approach will help to
protect and enhance long-term
investment value. Climate change
poses significant risk, but also
creates new opportunities for value
creation and differentiation.
PATRIZIA has defined a company-
wide net zero carbon strategy that
sets out steps for how we will
identify and manage the transition to
a low carbon economy, both for our
corporate operations and Assets
¹ Arising from scope 1, 2 and 3 energy consumption.
² Subject to periodic review in line with best practice science-based target setting methodologies.
³ With the aim of increasing tenant data coverage.
⁴ Prioritising the use of supplies that demonstrate additionality in growing overall capacity for renewables.
⁵ Where regional energy supply markets allow.
⁶ Applicable to all assets but flexible in level of detail, depending on scope of landlord control and materiality of transition risk.
⁷ Where lease arrangements and phased maintenance and replacement programmes allow.
⁸ Where PATRIZIA has full authority over the development process.
⁹ Where PATRIZIA has full authority over the development process.

Mid-Term Decarbonisation Targets
As part of this strategy, we have set ourselves the following mid-term targets:
Strategic Goal & Timeframe
Energy and Carbon
Develop a decarbonisation plan that applies the energy hierarchy, including
feasibility studies for onsite renewable energy, for all assets under
management⁶ by 2025.
Remove fossil fuel heat sources across all Assets under Management, where
practically feasible⁷ by 2030.
Ensure that by 2030, all new developments⁸ are net zero carbon.
Achieve net zero carbon status for the group’s own operations by 2030.
Reduce energy intensity by 30% and carbon intensity ¹ ² by 50% by 2030
across our Assets under Management, from an industry-wide baseline of
Procure electricity from renewable sources⁴ for all landlord-controlled
supplies by 2025⁵, while encouraging occupiers to adopt renewable energy.
Achieve 100% coverage of landlord procured energy data and establish an
effective tenant engagement strategy³ by 2025.

We are excited to share with you the steps and strategies we intend to take to reduce our carbon footprint and create a more sustainable future.
In our Sustainability Strategy video, we explore the significance of creating positive impact for both present and future generations. As a real assets industry, we understand the crucial role we play in providing basic human needs such as housing, workspaces, healthcare, energy, connectivity, and transportation across residential, commercial, logistics, and infrastructure sectors. However, we are also aware of the impact we have on the natural environment and the communities that depend on it. Thus, we are committed to achieving net zero carbon status across our corporate operations and real asset portfolio by 2040 or sooner.
Our Decarbonisation and Net Zero Carbon Strategy aims to reduce carbon emissions across our operations and value chain while creating a positive impact on the environment and communities we serve. To achieve our goals, we're implementing sustainable practices such as using energy-efficient buildings, renewable energy sources, and circular economy principles. These actions will not only help us reduce our carbon footprint but also contribute to a more sustainable future for all. Join us on this journey.
