Ziarul Financiar organized on May 8 a new edition of the ESG Summit event, a conference dedicated to understanding the phenomenon of sustainability.
Representatives of the business environment in our country discussed how the companies they work for adopted and integrated ESG tactics - environmental, social and governance - into their strategies. They represent the pillar on which sustainable development can be achieved.
Zuzanna Kurek, Investor Relations Manager and Member of the ESG Committee of One United Properties, was invited at the conference and pointed out that each development under the ONE brand brings innovation from a social and environmental point of view. Developments such as One Herăstrău Towers or One Herăstrău Park were built on the site of abandoned structures, thus revitalizing the entire area and bringing advantages to all the residents of the respective neighbourhoods. At the same time, large-scale developments such as One Cotroceni Park and the future One Cotroceni Towers rebuild abandoned industrial platforms and transform them into new communities, offering people quick access to various services, under the concept of the "15-minute city". Another example of involvement in sustainable urban development is One Floreasca City, which not only restored an area near the city centre that was forgotten, but also contributed to the modernization of the infrastructure in the area and the widening of the road, following an investment of 1 million of euros from the developer.
According to its ESG strategy, One United Properties will invest approximately 6 million euros for the construction of two schools near its developments in the Barbu Văcărescu area. Zuzanna Kurek also emphasized the importance of creating new landmarks on the city map, such as One Floreasca City, but also the regeneration and restoration of existing ones, which are part of the cultural heritage, such as One Athénée or One Gallery.
