By issuing our first Green Pfandbrief, we are taking an important step towards achieving the Paris climate targets. We will establish sustainable funding as an integral part of our business model, to be able to continuously support these targets.
Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time. Accounting for around 40 per cent of Germany´s greenhouse gas emissions, the real estate sector plays an important role in achieving the Paris climate targets. As a leading real estate bank, and a major issuer of Pfandbriefe in Germany, we are taking responsibility for contributing to the transition towards a sustainable real estate industry. An investment in our Green Pfandbriefe offers the opprtunity to participate in this change.
