ESG strategy



When our children ask, we want to be able to explain to them, with a clear conscience, what it is we do at INBRIGHT. We take responsibility—for our company as well as for our properties.

Our collaboration with stakeholders is rooted in transparency, authenticity, and trust. We always act genuinely because we seek to embody these values in both our professional and private lives: sustainability, directness, and reliability.


In everything that we do, we search for the most effective way to contribute to a climate-friendly and liveable future. We plan our real estate projects in an adaptable and resource-efficient manner to accord them long-term sustainability and resilience.


We are straightforward and clearly communicate our goals and intentions to our clients and partners. This is a principle we stick to without compromise, as it forms the foundation for successful cooperation.


We want to earn the trust of our tenants, investors, and business partners. This is why we dedicate time to developing personal relationships.


Our ESG strategy is based on our fundamental values and was defined in the first half of 2022. It enables us to strategically steer towards responsible action  and  to live by our values every day. This is why we have translated our core values into three areas of action which are relevant to us:

Environmental Protection


Responsible Business

CO2 reduction

Resource-efficient construction

Energy efficiency

Environmental Protection

The central aim of our climate strategy is to create a stock of buildings that are resource-efficient, low-emission and at the same time innovative. In addition to energy-efficient technology, we primarily rely on especially flexible building structures that are relatively easy to modify and can adjust to both present and future climatic and user-specific conditions. This means we are acting climate-friendly. Where it is not economically feasible to aviod emissions, we set them off.

Tenant satisfaction

Attract, support and develop employees

Remuneration and participation

Corp. volunteering


INBRIGHT´s success is predominantly based on a committed team of staff who are enthusiastic and put their heart and soul into task. They are experts in their areas and assume responsibility. We do our utmost to be an attractive employer for them and to support them in the best possible way. Furthermore, we see ourselves as working in a team together with our customers and our neighbourhood, which is why tenants satisfaction is a top priority of our work and social commitment is on the agenda on a regular basis.

flexible, resilient buildings

esteeming stakeholder relationships

ESG-oriented company management

compliance & transparency

Responsible Business

We are convinced that economic success and company management geared to sustainability can go hand in hand. We wish to create something that lasts. Therefore, a long-lasting portfolio of flexible, resilient buildings is a central requirement for us to ensure sustainable economic activity. In a continuous dialogue with our stakeholders, we get feedback on and draw inspiration for our actions as entrepreneurs on a regular basis. 

INBRIGHT is climate neutral

We recorded our company´s 2020 greenhouse gas emissions and offset these through climate protection projects in Germany and Sierra Leone. The process provided us with valuable findings about how to continuously reduce our emissions in the future. We will continue to consistently offset unavoidable emissions.

With our ESG strategy, we wish to contribute to addressing the greatest global challenges. For a summary of our specific contributions see here.

How we derived our ESG strategy

The main topics were identified in a workshop lasting several days with an external ESG consultant and validated in accordance with a fixed assessment scheme. Learn more.

How we derived Our ESG strategy

In an initial workshop, we first developed core values for our company. The development of an ESG strategy for INBRIGHT is based on this: main topics were determined and validated based on a fixed evaluation scheme in a two-day workshop. On the one hand, the topics result from the requirements of national and international industry standards and frameworks, such as DGNB, LEED and GRESB, and, on the other hand, from general sustainability standards, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and the Sustainable Development Goals. The list of topics was ultimately supplemented by specific industry requirements from the Light Industrial area. The collection of topics was classified based on a fixed evaluation scheme in a materiality assessment using a two-dimensional matrix with the dimensions “Relevance to business” and “Effects on the government and society”. The topics with the highest values in both dimensions, and hence being above the materiality threshold, form the basis of our ESG strategy or our sustainability programme. The materiality assessment is revalidated annually with the participation of internal and external stakeholders and the assessment of the topics is adjusted accordingly. 

Our Contribution to the sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted in 2015 by the member states of the United Nations.
They set a road map for the sustainable social, economic and environmental transformation of our world by 2030.

The SDGs also offer us as a company a framework for contributing to a positive future for the world. Our ESG strategy is our contribution to tackling the greatest worldwide challenges, especially to achieving the following SDGs:

We respect diversity, a fair pay and participation structure and the indivdual promotion of out team members, thus contributing to equality of opportunity.

Economic success and a profitable investment strategy are for us the foundation for securing attractive jobs in the long term and contributing to healthy economic growth.

We promote a low-emission infrastructure by locating our properties close to existing residential areas, offering our tenants access to public transport. We modernise and reposition old industrial and commercial properties to make their use lower in emissions, cleaner and more flexible, thus making a noticeable contribution to sustainable industry.

When building and repairing our properties, we are careful to use innovative and engery-efficient systems so as to aviod unnecessary environmental pressures on the surrounding area. Wherever compatible with legislation and the comfort demands of our users, we reduce technical equipment to a minimum to promote the longevity of our properties.

We align both our company and our property projects to ESG criteria. This includes planning our properties in a way that is sparing of resources and ensures them a long useful life with maximum flexibility. We also maintain open interactions in the spirit of partnership with all those involved – from planners and building firms through to the eventual user.

Reducing emissions, especially CO2 emissions, has a high priority for us within our ESG strategy. We as a company aim to reduce and compensate for our CO2 footprint to make the most effective contribution we can to protecting the climate.
