The real estate industry contributes significantly to the climate, as it is responsible for around one third of CO² emissions. The commercial real estate sector in Germany, in which CCI is increasingly active, is of particular importance here. Although this represents only 10% of the current building inventory, it accounts for about half of the emissions. With this in mind, CCI sees the obligation to take measures in its everyday business to promote climate protection and thus ensure an environmentally sustainable future. CCI endeavours to act in an environmentally conscious and resource-saving manner, both in its original field of business, the granting of mezzanine loans for real estate project developments within Germany, and at the corporate level. The aim is to make its own contribution to climate protection, in particular to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the generation of energy savings.
In their daily work, all employees* are regularly encouraged to conserve resources, especially energy and water. In addition to the responsible use of heating and cooling equipment in the offices, the behaviour with regard to the production of packaging waste and active waste separation as well as the consumption of resources and thus the CO² footprint must be questioned and adjusted. Avoiding unnecessary business travel is also one of the measures to actively contribute to climate protection. Furthermore, CCI supports the use of local public transport by providing employees with the Bahncard 25 as well as tickets for local public transport at their place of work. The provision of company vehicles is also regularly reviewed in this context, particularly with regard to the CO² emissions of the vehicles, and adjusted if necessary.
