Quadoro Continues to Focus on Climate Strategy

In April 2021, negotiators from the EU member states and the European Parliament finally agreed on stricter climate targets for 2030. By 2030, greenhouse gases in the European Union are to be reduced by at least 55% below 1990 levels. For the real estate sector this means that new builds must be as energy efficient as possible, existing buildings optimised for energy efficiency and energy increasingly sourced from renewables.

Quadoro is an Alternative Investment Fund Manager for sustainable investments and actively promotes these EU climate targets: CO2 emissions from fund properties are consistently being reduced. A range of measures are in place to reduce energy consumption whilst increasing the share of renewable energy.

With the open-ended special AIFs Quadoro Sustainable Real Estate Europe (QSREE) and Quadoro Social Infrastructure (QSI) as well as the mutual fund Quadoro Sustainable Real Estate Europe Private (Sustainable Europe), Quadoro offers investment opportunities for private as well as professional and semi-professional investors. The sustainability strategy of all these funds includes climate protection, economic and ecological sustainability as well as ethical aspects and social sustainability.

Key indicators for the energy efficiency of the fund properties are energy consumption and direct and indirect CO2 emissions. Quadoro funds also invest in properties in need of optimisation. In such cases having a clearly defined refurbishment strategy in place is a prerequisite.

Sustainable Real Estate AG, Switzerland, is the sustainability advisor for all Quadoro funds.

Michael Denk, Managing Director of Quadoro Investment GmbH, on the climate strategy: "The sustainability of our products was already a central component of our investment strategy long before any legal mandate. We are already ideally positioned for the EU regulations due to effect in 2022."

The Quadoro open-ended funds meet all transparency requirements for an Article 8 financial product according to the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and take into account the criteria for sustainable financial products within the context of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II).
