Making ESG and real estate work together for a better future - why we invested in Predium
ESG and sustainable investing are at the top of the agenda in the financial industry. The impact on real estate owners is significant and multi-faceted, ranging from tax and regulatory issues, to operational decisions and strategic planning. Up until a few years ago, many dimensions of ESG remained undefined, and there was a lack of concrete policies and guidelines. But Covid-19 has accelerated the development of new rules and regulations that are now coming into force across Germany and the rest of Europe.
In this context, Predium has built a software platform for real estate owners to help them collect data, analyze their ESG performance, and — most importantly — plan, implement and track actions that can make their buildings more sustainable and increase profitability along the way. Predium empowers real estate owners and managers to make data-driven investment decisions to effectively reduce their environmental footprint and meet regulatory requirements without sacrificing their bottom line, a critical need that has gone unmet until now.
