Our vision of sustainable real Estate
For almost 30 years, Liebrecht & wooD Group has been developing real estate projects that are well-designed in terms of both their function and their impact on the urban environment.
We approach each project with careful consideration and aim to contribute to sustainable cities by developing resilient buildings and places for the future that align with the concept of a polycentric city. We give former industrial sites back to the city and local communities, and we develop new buildings while always considering their environmental performance and the well-being of all who use them. We prioritize the use of renewable energy in the development and operation of our real estate.
We design human-centered places that meet diverse needs, ensuring that our standards result in friendly, aesthetic, and inclusive environments.
It is our pleasure to invite you to explore Liebrecht & wooD Group's approach to ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance). We have carefully selected our material aspects and strategic focus through ongoing dialogue with our stakeholders. This document provides a precise outline of our corporate policy and goals, which are implemented in our daily business activities. It establishes the company's commitments and the supporting governance structure aimed at improving our environmental and social impacts. Our stakeholders can rest assured that each of our projects undergoes thorough consideration, assessment, and management in terms of their environmental and community impact. We prioritize maximum transparency and reliability throughout this process.
Materiality Assessment Process
To start the process of structured ESG translation into our business model, in November 2022 with help of an ESG & Sustainability Strategy Consultancy, we have conducted a formal materiality assessment process to understand what are the key material topics for us to focus on.
The process included identifying, understanding and prioritizing ESG material issues by understanding interest and focus of our key stakeholders, sectoral issues and trends, laws and regulations, societal challenges and our key competencies to create a positive impact. Our Materiality Assessment Process followed the GRI methodology.
Key Material ESG Topics
The key material topics for our business have been identified by stakeholders from outside and within our company including the following groups: L&W’s Board, ESG Leadership Team, wider Employees group, ESG experts at Financing Institutions and Tenant companies. The assessment has focused on the severity and potential for improvement of the selected ESG impact areas. The selected ESG most material topics are not ranked as they are all important and can contribute to improvements.
