Sustainability

As a family business, Certitudo Capital places great importance on sustainability. By acknowledging that we only have this earth ‘on loan’ from the generations after us, we strive to find a responsible balance between People, Planet and Profit in everything we do.

The increasing sustainability challenges our world is facing means that the property world, too, is going through a drastic transition. Certitudo Capital is no exception. We take our responsibility seriously in this transition, we develop and gather knowledge, and contribute to a better, cleaner and more sustainable world. This applies in our internal business operation, such as through minimising paper usage, installing LED lighting with sensors and driving electric company cars. And it also applies to our developments and projects. Matters concerning the financing, design, and material and installation choices are always approached from the ambitious viewpoint to implement the most sustainable solution.
