PUBLICA’s real estate portfolio is made up of high-quality, recently built properties (three-quarters were constructed after 2000). As part of institutionalised risk management, ecological considerations are factored into both strategic and operational decision-making in every phase of the properties’ life cycle. Where economically viable and technically feasible, for example, measures are taken to reduce CO2 emissions by using energy-efficient heating systems, insulating the building shell or installing alternative energy supply systems. Other aspects, such as power-efficient lighting systems, the use of native flora and raising tenants’ awareness of resource conservation, are also taken into account.
