HAMBORNER REIT AG publishes first sustainability report

- 2013 sustainability report provides information on economic, ecological and social key      performance indicators

- Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) confirms compliance with GRI criteria

- Sustainability report to appear regularly and report on progress

Duisburg, 2 October 2013 - HAMBORNER REIT AG has published its first sustainability report. In addition to information on the corporate strategy, the report also describes the status of implementation of targets relating to economic, ecological and social aspects of sustainability. In accordance with the standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the report focuses on economic performance indicators, consumption analyses for heating energy, electricity and water, and social key performance indicators such as details of the age structure and length of employment.

'Measuring and comparing performance indicators for sustainability is a top priority at HAMBORNER for effective management. We therefore focus on selected key performance indicators that allow us to measure our attainment of sustainability goals now and in the future,' emphasises Dr Rüdiger Mrotzek, member of the Managing Board of HAMBORNER REIT AG.
In implementing its sustainable business management, HAMBORNER is guided by the principles and guidelines of the German Property Federation (ZIA). 'For many investors, sustainability is a key issue when making investment decisions,' Mrotzek continues.

'To enable us to tackle the challenges of sustainable business management successfully in the future as well, we also pay close attention to all sustainability aspects that define the properties as we expand our portfolio. For instance, in our report we look at very recent examples of HAMBORNER's sustainable outlook such as the 'NuOffice' in Munich and the 'EUREF Campus 12-13' in Berlin,' adds Hans Richard Schmitz, member of the Managing Board of HAMBORNER REIT AG.

For listed companies in particular, maximum transparency is crucial in order to operate successfully on the market. 'We therefore consider it particularly important to convey our understanding of the interconnectedness of the economic, ecological and social dimensions of sustainable corporate governance to our stakeholders. This is because sustainability is more than just a synonym for environmentally friendly measures. The responsible handling of the interests of all stakeholders - shareholders, backers, tenants and employees - is a crucial factor for us,' sums up Schmitz.

The company plans to update the sustainability report and report on the further implementation of the sustainability strategy in the future, too. The 2013 sustainability report is available at https://www.hamborner.de/Nachhaltigkeit.250.0.html?&L=1 .
