Non-financial Reports

Separate Combined Non-financial Report 2023

The 2023 Non-financial Report describes Aareal Bank Group's goals and policies for the five matters required by law (environmental matters, employee-related matters, social matters, respect for human rights and anti-corruption and bribery matters). The Non-financial Report was prepared on the basis of the requirements of the HGB. In addition, our description of the management approaches and the implementation of the materiality analysis is based on the Global Reporting Initiative Standards ("GRI-referenced") and also takes into account the principles set out in the UN Global Compact. The content and structure of the chapters are based on the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD); in addition, we report selected key figures on operational resource efficiency. In the non-financial report 2023, the disclosure requirements according to the Taxonomy Regulation were integrated. The report has been subjected to a limited assurance review.

Environmental performance indicators

Avoiding environmental impacts and making sparing use of resources are guiding principles at Aareal Bank Group. With our active environmental management system, we aim to meet the requirements of environmentally responsible banking and to minimise the negative impacts of our business activities.

Making sparing use of resources in the Bank’s internal operations is the top priority. This depends crucially on employee awareness of this issue. Other basic measures for reducing environmental impacts include cutting energy consumption, reducing CO2 emissions, improving energy efficiency and increasing the percentage of renewable energy in the supply mix. Our policy since 2014 of sourcing green energy to supply our main sites in Wiesbaden and Mainz, as well as other locations in Germany, is central here.
