As well as delivering strong returns, it is important to us
that our investments are sustainable and ethical
Our business is built on the principles of integrity, accountability, consistency and transparency.
We are a signatory to the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Investment and evaluate all of our projects against these standards.
Each one of our investments is evaluated against a range of criteria, including the use of sustainable materials in construction, management of energy consumption, services and waste, and minimising environmental impact. Only investment opportunities that meet a minimum score are put forward for consideration.
Creating zero-energy buildings
In Switzerland, Avelios partner FREO is collaborating with architects Baumschlager Eberle to create buildings designed to regulate internal temperatures of between 22◦C and 26◦C without the need for heating, ventilation or cooling. The 2226 concept minimises use of technology, taking instead a design-led approach to sustainability. The development of the first building to use this concept is already underway in Switzerland and further similar projects are planned.
