Our sustainability strategy

Our goal is to transform your real estate into assets that are designed to be sustainable in every way.

We are one of the first real estate service providers that has included ESG (Environment – Social – Governance) criteria in our entire portfolio. Since 2012, we have held the GRESB classification (Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark) and can fully implement a GRESB review process for client portfolios. 

In this respect, particularly in property management, we are required to act as data collectors and data processors. ESG aspects need to be systematically integrated into the organisational and operational structure. At the same time, we aligned our software systems with the systematic storage of sustainability data at an early stage.

But we do not only pay attention to sustainability in the real estate portfolios entrusted to us. We assume holistic responsibility for our environment and the well-being of future generations.

IIn times when land is becoming increasingly scarce in Germany, the redevelopment and revitalisation of brownfield sites have the highest sustainability value. In this respect, we have joined the German Brownfield Association in order to remove contaminated sites and effectively protect green spaces from new sealing.

We have been implementing various aspects in our everyday office life, which are regularly evaluated and optimised by a team of several employees. These include, among others:

  • Offer of job leasing bikes
  • LED lighting in all our offices
  • Organic and fair trade food
  • Exchange platform for employees
  • Consistent waste separation
  • Use of more environmentally friendly detergents
  • Valon Health Benefit System for employess an their families with over 300 health offers


We are aware of our social responsibility as a company (Corporate Social Responsibility). Every year we organise a Valon CSR Day, where our employees volunteer for a social project. Regional projects and institutions are supported, such as the painting campaign at Mädchenhaus Soest or the company charity run at Lake Möhne.
