Sustainability in three letters — ESG
Environment (E): Responsible interaction with the environment has been an integral part of S IMMO's operations and strategy for many years. Our declared goal is to design our properties in a resource-efficient, low-emission and user-friendly way.
Social (S): We are not just an employer but our properties also fulfil people's basic need for space to live and work. S IMMO thus plays an important role in society.
Governance (G): As a listed company, S IMMO serves shareholders’ interests at all times. Managing capital with integrity and a focus on sustainability is a key part of the company’s self-image.

S IMMO uses memberships and partnerships in order to meet its social responsibility in the area of sustainability within its industry and the economy as a whole. It actively supports sustainable development and the transfer of knowledge and is a member of the Austrian Business Council for Sustainable Development (respACT), the European Public Real Estate Association (EPRA) and the Austrian Sustainable Building Council (ÖGNI).
As a real estate company, one of the biggest sources of leverage S IMMO has when it comes to making a material contribution to a sustainable economy and society is to ensure that the construction, operation and modernisation of its properties are as resource-efficient, low in emissions and user-friendly as possible. To this end, S IMMO plans its own development projects according to the green building standards of BREEAM, WELL and LEED and evaluates property acquisitions based on existing certifications or future certifiability. S IMMO has ESG ratings from ISS, MSCI and Sustainalytics
