Social responsibility drives our work

All aspects of our business and decision-making are based on social responsibility. We bear our responsibility for sustainable development by taking into account economic, social as well as environmental considerations, not forgetting the cultural value of buildings.

The vision of corporate social responsibility

We are a pioneer of corporate social responsibility in our industry, and we always keep the government’s best interest in mind when we create work environments for our customers. Our business is energy and material efficient and commercially accountable.

Responsibility and environmental work at Senate Properties is based on our certified ISO 14001 environmental management system, which has been extended to also cover economic and social responsibility aspects.

Focus areas of responsibility

Senate Properties’ focus areas of responsibility take widely into account the aspects of environmental, social and economic responsibility. The real estate and construction sectors particularly highlight environmental aspects, the most important of which are emissions reduction and improved energy efficiency.
