In the Consulting/Services segment, Aareal Bank Group offers clients – particularly from the housing industry and the commercial property sector – services and products for managing residential property portfolios and processing payment flows.
It is particularly important to Aareal Bank Group to make a contribution to sustainable economic and social development above and beyond its actual business activities. After this, four strategic directions for the scope of sustainability management and sustainability reporting were developed on the basis of the stakeholder expectations:
- To document and increase the sustainability of the core business
- To continue pursuing our systematic, Group-wide approach to sustainability
- To identify and expand Aareal Bank Group’s contribution to added value
- To increase transparency regarding the contributions made to sustainability
