Making impact measurable

Impact must be measurable, we believe. Therefore, for all our projects, we map our 3E impact and turn it into concrete results for our portfolio. We do this together with our partners specialized in the emotional (Springco), ecological (Metabolic) & economic (Alba Concepts & Envalue) domain. We translate this 3E impact into both impact on the SDG (United Nations Sustainable Development Goals) and ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) criteria. We then include this in our annual reports. Curious about how much impact we make?


The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are 17 goals to make the world a better place by 2030. In 2015, all 193 member countries of the United Nations (UN) adopted these goals. For each domain, the goals we include are displayed. ESG stands for Environment, Social and Governance. These are the three main criteria for measuring sustainability and form the basis of sustainable and responsible investing. European guidelines for this are set out in the SFDR (Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation) & CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive). These are established by the European Commission in the ESRS (European Sustainability Reporting Standards) as standards for sustainability reporting.

Biodiversity and ecosystems


Resource use and circular economy

40% CO2 reductioncompared to traditional and even 59%CO2 reductionin future redevelopment. Our material-related emissions are significantly lower.

31% reduction relative to MPG limits. Our buildings score well below the statutory Environmental Performance Building limits.

40% lower energy consumption compared to the market average. By reducing energy demand and clean generation, our starting point is energy label A++++.

BENG new construction requirements as a minimum. Even though our buildings are mostly redevelopments, they more than meet BENG new construction requirements.

70% lower water consumption than the market average. Water-saving toilets and showers significantly reduce consumption.

Apply other gray water system and other rainwater storage for rooftop garden watering as optimizations for next projects.

5,200m2 of ecological green space added. For this purpose, local plants have been added to, on and in our buildings, including for green roof terraces.

Collaboration with an urban ecologist can further encourage biodiversity as optimization for subsequent projects.

Economic impact

Due to their dynamic nature, RE:BORN buildings have a lower vacancy risk and a wider market. Moreover, their transformation costs are much lower. These advantages lead to better rent and value development compared to traditional buildings. In doing so, we make economic impact.

General Requirements


General Disclosures

70% construction cost savings over new construction. By retaining the support structure in our redevelopments, we save significantly on construction costs.

2% lower investment cost compared to traditional. Save big by reusing structure and light, invest more in skin, services and space plan for future flexibility.

40% lower energy costs compared to traditional. Our buildings have high savings due to good facade and a sustainable installation concept with PVT panels.

Equal maintenance costs vs. traditional. Our buildings have slightly more maintenance due to decentralized systems, but less maintenance in terms of materialization.

0% additional investment when converting from hotel or shortstay to residential. Our buildings can even accommodate this seasonally.

61% lower transformation costs compared to traditional in future redevelopment to healthcare and office, among other uses. Our structure (supporting structure) and skin (facade) are prepared for this.

>30% higher market value over traditional based on RISC. Because of their legal and technical flexibility and sustainability, our projects have a higher market value.

PILOT for innovations in the valuation world. Our buildings are being used as a pilot for appraisers in relation to valuing future value.
