Challenges in Residential Construction – ESG and EU Taxonomy

The main goal set in the context of the EU Taxonomy (2020/852) is to make all building stock in Germany largely climate-neutral by 2050. It is an ambitious goal, but one that is essential for climate protection.

It requires direct action on the part of all involved – after all, the real estate industry is responsible for around one third of Germany’s greenhouse gas emissions and thus has a huge social responsibility. Sustainable construction and management are therefore urgently required in the real estate and housing sectors – and this results in catalogs of measures and sustainability certifications for new and established buildings.

Projects in residential construction - living space that pays off


The acute need for new, affordable housing poses great challenges for the construction industry. Experienced project managers are in demand who can advise on sustainable development concepts at an early stage. Here, Drees & Sommer experts address the individual needs of the client and ask, for example, about flat sizes and efficient floor plans. The film shows this using the example of Berlin's Möckernkiez.


Housing projects - challenges for property developers


A property development project is never an off-the-peg construction project, but always a complex undertaking - not least because, in addition to the construction itself, it is usually a buyer's project with many clients who all have their own ideas. Drees & Sommer acts as a reliable interface for clients, from optimization of floor plans during planning to review of contracts before sales start. Always with the purchaser in focus.


We are actively involved in these associations and our innovative strength contributes to the development of a sustainable and cost-efficient housing industry.
