Socially sustainable investments

Investments

Why there is a win-win for many

Creating value with values and strengthening social infrastructure.

The letters ESG often appear in connection with socially sustainable investments. But what does ESG actually mean? The acronym stands for Environment, Social and Governance — that is, environmental, social and sustainable corporate governance. ESG is considered the standard for sustainable investment and therefore also for our investment funds. As a real estate investment company, we at Primonial REIM focus on the S, the social, on social commitment. Because our long-term goal is to improve the quality of social interaction.

​​​​​​​Nowadays, sustainability is omnipresent. Whether it is in the media, at work, at home and among friends - more and more people are actively incorporating the topic into their way of life. They strive to perform actions that protect ecosystems and living beings from harm and thus hand the world worth living in over to future generations.

Socially important, ecologically optimized and intergenerationally justifiable projects are the key to a responsible financial landscape.

Their foundation is long-term, sensible investments in well thought-out real estate properties.
"We make a substantive contribution to the sustainable conversion of Real Estate Investments."
Juergen Fenk, Chief Executive Officer, Primonial REIM

​​​​​​​Its main focus is to  renew playgrounds in socially disadvantaged cities and their suburbs, by securing and providing them with sustainable equipment for children.
