Environment Decisions taken in the real estate sector always have long-term effects. Environmental criteria therefore play a special role in the real estate portfolio and in real estate development.
The following table provides an overview of the indicators collated:

Mobimo aims to realise projects that keep the negative impact on the environment to a minimum. For example, Mobimo takes into account the consumption of materials, water and energy, minimises greenhouse gas emissions and waste, and attaches importance to conserving local biodiversity. At the same time, it seeks to give cus tomers the maximum benefit (e.g. good location, good indoor climate) and offer them attractive living (e.g. designing the sur roundings to incorporate biodiversity). Mobimo complies with en vironmental regulations as a matter of course. The company works with selected and experienced partners to promote the training and expertise of its staff. As the highest bodies, the Real Estate Com mittee and Executive Board verify the achievement of targets. Sustainability strategy 2022

Portfolio energy consumption and emissions (GRI Management Approach) Significance of topic
Around 42% of energy consumption and 35% of emissions in Swit zerland are caused by buildings. Improving energy efficiency, re ducing polluting emissions and using renewable energies are the most effective measures in the long term and thus the most impor tant objectives of Mobimo’s real estate strategy. Measures, approach, responsibilities
Since 2011, Mobimo has collated data on the energy consumption and CO2 emissions of all investment properties and published the results annually in the Sustainability Report. The published energy consumption and emissions data is audited annually for the GRI re port, GRESB and CDP by an independent third party (limited assur ance). New construction projects and the existing real estate port folio are continuously examined and evaluated in accordance with the sustainability criteria. An important measure for evaluating the portfolio is the certification of newly created real estate (Minergie, DGNB, etc.) and compliance with the Minergie or other sustainabil ity standard (with or without certification). Mobimo makes investments in central locations that are easily ac cessible with public transport. The first, important measure is to check the quality of land (contamination, next to delicate or sensitive ground),
