Taking responsibility


Environmental | Social | Governance
The JAAS Group does not see successful entrepreneurship and social responsibility as a contradiction. Rather, it sees the great opportunities that arise from the synergy of both aspects. Alignment along the three corporate responsibility areas of environmental, social and governance (ESG) already determines how successfully a company can position itself in the market. JAAS does justice to this fact and brings a profitable market performance in line with a sustainable corporate orientation, social action maxims and responsible management in accordance with the principles of good corporate governance. 

Marc Albeck of JAAS: "We make our contribution to developing the real estate industry into a driving force for liveable neighbourhoods, sustainable construction and fair economic action."

The following concrete approaches are part of the JAAS Group's self-image and corporate mission statement:



  • Use of sustainable and ecological building materials: energy and CO₂ balances in the manufacturing process

  • Integration of green areas such as green roofs
