The Talanx Group has set itself the goal of achieving net zero emissions from operations by 2030. One of the ways in which this can be done is using “greener” buildings.
Climate and environmental protection in the enterprise is one of the main ways in which Talanx aims to reduce emissions, along with investments and underwriting. The Talanx Group has set itself the goal of achieving net zero emissions from operations by 2030. One of the ways in which this can be done is through “greener” buildings. As a result, whenever Talanx needs new office buildings to accommodate its growth or because it has optimised its operating structures, it looks for more sustainable buildings or has new ones built and certified to the latest sustainable construction standards.
For example, in 2021 HDI Mexico moved into a new, EDGE-certified building. The move will save roughly 117 metric tons of CO2 per annum. Now the WARTA team has taken new offices in one of Poland’s tallest buildings – which has also been certified under the BREEAM sustainability standard for environmental and social aspects. And the HDI team in Italy has brought its staff together at a new location that has been awarded a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building certification.
Additional relocations are already being planned prospectively for the coming reporting period: In 2022, HDI France will move into the first building to be constructed in accordance with the HQE®, the French green building approach, that is also BREEAM-certified.
