Key topics and objectives

Stakeholder dialogue

As a service company, a focus on markets and clients is essential for us. That’s why we regularly hold regular conversations at management level with authorities and customers, for instance, engage in industry bodies, conduct customer satisfaction surveys and hold a dialogue with investors and financial analysts.

At the end of 2023 we launched a multi-level, systematic stakeholder dialogue to review the key sustainability topics. This was initially internal, then external, and included tenant representatives, suppliers and representatives from academia, civil society and the financial services industry. The aim was to become more familiar with stakeholders’ challengers, needs and expectations as regards the key sustainability topics and pick up suggestions on how to develop and improve sustainability engagement at Allreal. A widely circulated written survey on the material topics was carried out at the same time.

Taking account of the suggestions from the internal and external dialogue and the written survey, Allreal drew up the following materiality matrix:

Based on this matrix, we defined the following key topics:

Goals and goal achievement

The Allreal sustainability strategy we issued in 2021 and reviewed in 2023 had 12 thematic focuses in the three dimensions of environmental, social and governance. It sets clear performance metrics with a time horizon of three years in each case and a CO2 reduction path out to 2050.

CO2 reduction path

A focus in the Environment section is achieving carbon-neutrality by 2050. An important intermediate goal is to reduce the share of fossil fuels by 50% by 2030 (from 64% in 2021 to 32%).

Our contribution to sustainable development goals

In 2015 the member states of the United Nations approved the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. At the heart of this agenda are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These are to be achieved globally and by all UN members by 2030. Allreal contributes to achieving several of these goals by its business activities and sustainability strategy.

The guiding principle for Allreal is derived from the business model: “Sustainable Cities and Communities”.
