Sustainability Report 2022

The construction and real estate industry is facing major challenges. The real estate sector is responsible for approx. 30 percent of CO2 emissions in Germany. It is crucial to reduce this number significantly, and the Gröner Group is committed to take on this task. We are rethinking our approach, driving the necessary ecological transformation, and advocating for a new kind of building and urban development. We take responsibility for our employees and we are committed to a sustainable society for generations to come.

In 2022, we published our first sustainability report, which outlines how we are implementing our sustainability strategy, addressing future challenges, and driving initiatives for the future.

We are taking responsibility by building sustainably

“The Real estate industry is facing major challenges. Ecological change, shortage of skilled workers, inflation and rising rates of interests require smart economic and technological solutions. With ecobuilding, we have the answer for a sustainable future.”

– Christoph Gröner, CEO of Gröner Group AG

“Our approach is unique in the market. With ecobuilding, we focus on various effective measures in planning, construction, and managing to achieve maximum sustainablility for our urban developments. Our goal is the reduction of carbon emissions by up to 100 percent.”

– Ronald Pofalla, COO of Gröner Group AG

Our Understanding of Sustainability: Ecological. Economic. Digital.

If you want to invent something new, you have to imagine things that do not yet exist. The Gröner Group is driving profound transformation in the construction and real estate industry through innovative thinking and courageous actions. Sustainability is at the core of our foundation because a better future can only be built upon it. To change the world, we create alternatives instead of restrictions.

Our core business is ecologically and socially oriented. We stand for vibrant living spaces in urban developments that are implemented in an environmentally friendly manner and operated in a climate-friendly way. We harness the full power of digitalisation and find answers to social transformation. Fairness, openness and diversity are the main pillars of our corporate culture. Additionally, we strongly advocate for equal opportunities for children and youths in Germany. 

We work responsibly and act with a focus on the future. By doing so, we secure our long-term success and become an important pillar of support for society.
