Corio wins two sustainability awards

Corio received the award for most sustainable listed real estate fund in the Netherlands on 28 November 2012 from VDBO. The award is a recognition of Corio's sustainability performance in the VBDO/GRESB sustainable real estate benchmark 2012. In addition, Corio also received the Green Brick Award (Groene Baksteen) on 18 September 2012 at the Jones Lang Lasalle congress, which was granted for outstanding sustainability performance. Gerard Groener, CEO: "In today's rapidly changing world, maintaining sustainable economic results cannot be seen separately from showing consistent performance in social and environmental matters. We do not operate in isolation. Our business needs to reinvent itself, to innovate, in order to stay relevant socially and economically. The business case for our CSR approach is clear and persuasive. It helps us to connect with consumers and to understand and respond to their demands. This gives us the possibility to sustain high occupancy levels and increase footfall. A robust approach towards environmental footprint reduction makes our operations more cost effective, prepares us for future legislative challenges and paves the way to innovative approaches in terms of sustainable design and new collaborative models."
