Our climate goals

until 2030

By 2030, we aim to halve our project-related climate emissions compared to 2021. This includes all emissions resulting from the construction and operation of our real estate projects.

until 2050

Our goal: achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2045

Sustainability at Bauwens

The future will be decided in the cities. We are aware of the great responsibility we bear.

As a construction and real estate company, we do understand that our economic activities can and should make an active contribution to a future worth living - for current and future generations.

Our philosophy of "Creating Excellence" should be understood holistically. This means that, in addition to economic factors, we also include ecological and social aspects in our considerations.

With the continuous development of our sustainability management, we would like to anchor this claim in all life cycle phases of our projects as well as in the company. Our goal is to translate this entrepreneurial attitude into knowledge as well as focused actions.

Our sustainability ambitions

We can achieve our goals with an effective combination of sufficiency, efficiency and consistency strategies in the context of construction and operation.

To give an example: In building operationthe aim is to reduce energy demand by implementing high energy standards, tosupport the remaining demand by using effective technology and to generate the necessary electricity and heat energy regeneratively, for example by using photovoltaics and heat pumps.

However, it is not just a matter of operating real estate in a way that conserves resources.

That is why we take a holistic view of our real estate projects, taking a critical look at the resource consumption resulting from the construction of our buildings and its associated emissions, the so-called "grey energy".

Sustainable projects

The future of sustainable living

By consciously reducing building mass, implementing slim constructions and using climate-positive materials such as wood, we want to achieve our ambitious climate and resource targets as quickly as possible. A life cycle assessment based on BIM data will support us in this endeavor.

A transparent energy monitoring provides more transparency for our customers. In addition, multimodal mobility concepts are intended to pave the way to an easier and more sustainable way of life.

Every real estate project at Bauwens is individual. In order to effectively implement our vision of ecologically, economically and socially sustainable projects, we work with interdisciplinary teams on the combination of effective sustainability measures in pilot projects at a very early stage of development and planning.

With the pilot projects, we want to take concrete responsibility for meeting the increased sustainability requirements of the market. Our future projects aim to meet the dynamics of the EU Green Deal, EU taxonomy and disclosure regulations, as well as to fulfil the increased ESG requirements of the financial market.

100% green electricity

Bauwens takes responsibility

In order to reduce our CO2e emissions at the corporate level as well, the office locations of the Bauwens Group are supplied with electricity from 100% German hydropower. This saves us 321,300.0 kg of CO2 per year.
