Portfolio-wide sustainability needs urgent action: Sunrock

European property owners have adopted ambitious ESG targets but ambition is not the problem, execution is, Sunrock Germany Managing Director Hugo Willink told Real Asset Insight during the recent EXPO Real property show.

“I see a lot of movement throughout Europe. The partners that Sunrock works with throughout Europe have a very ambitious ESG Target whether it’s for 2025 for 2030.”

“It is our task to get investors, developers and solar developers at Sunroc in line to work towards those sustainability goals,” he said adding that the challenge is Europe-wide, not specific to particular countries.

“If we can work together to get the timeline from planning to real execution then we will get to those targets. 2030 seems quite a long time away but to make your entire portfolio sustainable takes years and years and that requires execution now and not tomorrow.”
