New consulting service re:fit in response to EU Taxonomy Directive


With a renovation rate of around 1% in Austria and Germany, the potential is enormous.


Vienna (10.07.2023), the real estate developer and operator Value One responds to the challenges surrounding the EU Taxonomy Directive with its new consulting service re:fit and creates a lever against soil sealing. With re:fit, Value One makes real estate climate fit and ensures that properties are EU taxonomy compliant. Through comprehensive consulting and professional implementation, Value One makes both existing properties and real estate portfolios fit for a sustainable future.

The Lever Existing Buildings EU-Taxonomy Compliant and Climate-Fit
The treatment of existing buildings is an important part of the fight against climate change. Re:fit not only helps new buildings to be green, but also supports existing buildings to make the transition from grey to green. Investment in sustainability as value preservation.
Andreas Köttl, CEO of Value One, says: 'We make real estate EU taxonomy-ready and climate fit. Our clients are real estate entrepreneurs, property owners and funds. They have understood that investing in sustainability avoids stranded assets and remains competitive and maintains value. With re:fit, we not only save costs in the long run, but also create a climate-fit property that protects the environment.'"

1% renovation rate: 99% potential
"A renovation rate of currently just over 1% in Austria and Germany shows the enormous potential we have here. In projects like Viertel Zwei, we have already proven that we can refurbish existing properties and make them EU taxonomy-compliant and climate-friendly. We are now looking forward to passing on this comprehensive knowledge to our clients and helping them to make their properties more energy-efficient and environmentally sensitive," Andreas Köttl continues. From energy monitoring and retrofits to green building certifications, sustainability initiatives and concrete implementation, the Re:fit experts have the necessary expertise and experience to ensure that every property realises its highest potential. The new advisory service is already in demand from clients such as Signa and Catella and is already being implemented in projects in Austria and Germany.
