More than 13,000 Metric Tons of CO2 Saved in 2016

103-2, 103-3, 302-5

In 2016, we continued to systematically pursue our goal of continuously improving the quality of our housing stocks and residential neighborhoods. As part of our “energy-efficient building upgrade” program, we replaced the insulation for a living area of more than 1,357,000 m2 (2015: 357,550 m2) in almost 400 projects or about 22,550 units (2015: 300 projects or about 7,000 units). In 2016, the catalog of energy-efficient improvements also once again included the optimization and renewal of heating systems. Around 10,000 apartments benefited from this last year (2015: 7,000).

The measures that were carried out in 2016 resulted in savings of more than 42,000 MWh (2015: 26,000 MWh) of final energy demand for our building stock. In 2016, CO2 emissions were reduced by more than 13,000 metric tons (2015: 10,000 metric tons). This corresponds to energy savings for the buildings refurbished in 2016 of 47.5%, or a 48% reduction in CO2 emissions (2015: 43% and 47%). 103-3, 302-4, 305-5

Based on the energy certificates of 316 commercial properties and 50,056 residential properties, the average energy intensity of our buildings amounts to 413.53 kWh/m2 for commercial properties and 165.13 kWh/m2 for residential properties. 302-3, CRE1
