By-lined article: ESG for office real estate - Why new construction is not the solution
In the current October issue of FondsNews, Peter Finkbeiner explains that innovative new building concepts or costly refurbishments are not always the best solution for reducing the CO2 consumption of buildings. A comparatively more cost-efficient and immediate effect can be achieved, for example, by converting heating systems to renewable energy sources and/or using green electricity from one's own PV roof system. Instead of investing a lot of money in costly refurbishment measures and new building developments in the future, it is therefore advisable to focus on measures in existing buildings that immediately and directly reduce energy consumption and consequently CO2.
