The EPRA (European Public Real Estate Association), the association of listed real estate companies, presents this sustainability award with the aim of encouraging companies in the real estate sector to be more transparent and open in their sustainability reporting. This year's evaluation process included reports from 152 EPRA members. With the publication of its first report, our company was able to directly reach the "Gold" category and was also awarded the "most improved" award.
By receiving the gold award, VIB immediately fulfils the highest transparency requirements of EPRA with regard to ecological and social aspects as well as core elements of good corporate governance. The EPRA sustainability award is a further component of VIB's sustainability strategy, which the Group has consistently pursued for years.
"The topic of sustainability plays a central role in public perception and it is now impossible to imagine companies without it. We want to move into the future together with our stakeholders on this important topic, thus our shareholders, financing and business partners and our tenants. In addition to the award for our sustainability reporting, this year our company has also received the "EPRA BPR Gold Award" for the third year in succession for the exemplary transparency of our financial reporting," comments Holger Pilgenröther, CFO of VIB Vermögen AG.
