Challenges, Opportunities and Risks

According to the Energy Services Act (EDL-G), which implements EU energy-efficiency guidelines, Vonovia is obligated to conduct an energy audit every four years. The next audit cycle is due in 2019. Our greatest challenge in this regard is creating an overview of all of the independent work locations and their actual use, along with preparing basic data on consumption as a foundation. The integration of other companies, such as BUWOG, Victoria Park and conwert, and organizational changes, such as the establishment of the residential environment organization and expansion of the technical service, mean that the data needs to be collected and evaluated anew.

The new construction of our headquarters in Bochum provides us with an opportunity to improve our resource consumption and emissions. As the owner of the new property we are in a much better position to manage resource efficiency in and around the building.
