REINO – a pioneer in ESG-focused real estate asset management – has taken the next step to improve all its processes in the field of environmental, social and corporate responsibility.
The company has created the new position of Chief Impact Officer, supported by an ESG Committee with the participation of key managers in the Group.
REINO Partners, a leading company of listed REINO Capital (RNC) holding company, has focused on the implementation of sustainable measures in real estate management since it was founded over 10 years ago.
REINO is currently responsible for an asset portfolio of over EUR 600 million. Most of the properties are of the highest quality and stand out in many aspects of ESG. Kapelanka 42B office building in Krakow – in our portfolio since 2014 – boasts the LEED EBOM Platinum certificate with the highest score in Poland, while Malta House in Poznań – in the portfolio since 2015 – is the first and only office building in Poland with a double LEED Platinum certificate. It also received the “Building without barriers” certificate, the PLGBC Green Building Award 2019 and the title of Accessibility Leader 2020 from the Integration Foundation.
“When we established REINO Partners, the awareness of social and environmental responsibility in business was not as high as it is now. From the very beginning, our goal was to ensure that the assets we manage have the highest ESG standards. In a sense, we were pioneers of ESG on the Polish market,” says Dorota Latkowska-Diniejko, Chief Investment Officer at REINO Partners.
“Until now,” says Beata Binek, Chairwoman of the Supervisory Board of REINO Capital and former President of the Management Board of the Polish Institute of Directors Foundation, “I have been mainly devoted to raising awareness and educating the market in terms of social and environmental responsibility. Now I have the opportunity to put my knowledge to practical use in formulating ESG policies in the REINO Group. This is a very interesting challenge because we want to create standards that will be a model of quality for the entire market.”
The management board of a listed holding company actively applies the principles of Corporate Governance and Best Practices of WSE-listed companies and strives to fully integrate its efforts in all ESG spheres: environmental, social and corporate responsibility. To this end, the Group is conducting a large-scale project with consulting company Deloitte, combined with an internal review of structures, objectives and processes in the field of ESG. As a result, REINO Capital SA created a new position of Chief Impact Officer and the ESG Committee with the participation of key managers of the Group. The aim of the holding is to develop the highest standards that will more than meet the expectations of such demanding partners as Partners Group or Grosvenor.
