We are the leading real estate company in Switzerland and create sustainable living spaces that offer added value for our customers and for society as a whole. We focus on first-class properties, sites, real estate projects, products and services combined with an active management approach. We manage real estate assets with a total value of around CHF 21 billion, giving us a crucial size advantage when it comes to setting standards for innovation, sustainability and profitability. As such, we are the partner of choice for various stakeholder groups. Our strategy is based on two strong pillars: the Real Estate sector through which Swiss Prime Site holds and develops properties directly, and the Real Estate Asset Management sector through which we actively invest additional assets in real estate in our capacity as an asset manager.
Sustainability has been part of our business and value creation model and an integral component of our strategy for some time. It enables us to increase Swiss Prime Site’s resilience, and we are convinced that we are creating long-term added value for our stakeholders and for society as a whole. A detailed materiality analysis, reviewed on an ongoing basis, forms the basis and focus of our commitment in this area. We plan, implement and measure the impact of the key topics for us and our environment along the six fields of action derived from the analysis. To put it in a global context, we establish the connection to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We have developed a detailed CO2 reduction pathway based on the Swiss government’s Energy Strategy 2050 and the international climate goals. Our primary objective is make the operational management of our property portfolio free of emissions by 2040. Sustainability is likewise of great importance in our corporate financing. Currently, around half of our external financing is linked to measurable sustainability goals.
