Environmental Protection in the Portfolio

Challenges, Opportunities and Risks

Vonovia has thus far not dealt with the challenges, opportunities and risks of environmental protection in the portfolio in a systematic manner. This requires more comprehensive evaluations in order to derive more concise conclusions for the portfolio.

The development of standardized residential environment modules (such as playgrounds and refuse collection points), however, serves to boost efficiency and generate additional cost advantages. In addition to the higher quality of the services provided, cost savings can also be achieved in this area by bundling and standardizing procurement processes (consumer materials, playgrounds, etc.). Residential environment measures contribute to positive neighborhood development. Increased visual appeal and moves to rid neighborhoods of areas that feel unsafe help to boost customer satisfaction.
