As one of the largest real estate companies in Europe, SIGNA Real Estate carries great social responsibility. We aim to create sustainable buildings, and thus places to live, work, and experience that provide answers to sustainability issues. Our business is built on the principles of creating lasting value and preserving extraordinary buildings for the long term. Environmental, social, and societal factors play as important a role as economic considerations in our business decisions and processes.


SIGNA has been incorporating sustainability issues into its business model for many years now. As the owner and developer of buildings that define cityscapes, we are part of society. We are well aware of the obligation this entails. Four strategic action areas summarizing the material topics for SIGNA have been defined on the basis of detailed analyses.



Information on SIGNA’s sustainability activities can be found in the reports of SIGNA Prime Selection AG and SIGNA Development Selection AG.

Carbon footprint

The comprehensive presentation of emissions forms the basis for a long-term decarbonization strategy. Last year, the focus was on preparing the first corporate carbon footprint (CCF) for SIGNA Prime and SIGNA Development based on the 2021 fiscal year. A CCF provides information on the total greenhouse gas emissions, expressed as CO2 equivalents, for which a company is responsible across its value chain.

The following documents include information on the sound scientific methodology based on recognized standards that was used to calculate our corporate carbon footprint.
