We take a strategic approach to sustainability management
More than ever before, there is pressure on companies to make a contribution to sustainable economic and social development. As an international property finance provider, Aareal Bank Group is playing its part in the transition to global, sustainable growth – by offering tailored financing structures and creating attractive investment opportunities, and by developing innovative payment/software solutions and digital services for the housing and property industries.
We keep sight of our stakeholder requirements and of the short- and long-term consequences of our actions when implementing our corporate goals. Bearing in mind the social, ecological and governance aspects of our business decisions allows us to add value sustainably – for all our stakeholders. »Trust ranks amongst the most important foundations of our business activities. To this end, we emphasise absolute integrity, respect the ten principles of the UN Global Compact, and ensure that our activities are highly transparent, both internally and externally. This way, we are – and will remain – reliable and predictable to our stakeholders. Therefore, we have been a signatory of the ten principles of the UN Global Compact since 2012 out of conviction.« Hermann J. Merkens, Chairman of the Management Board, Aareal Bank Group
