Sustainability is an integral part of NSI’s long term value creation strategy. Our business model is geared towards decarbonising our portfolio by reducing energy usage, owning and developing flexible and adaptive buildings, and creating inspiring, flexible working environments articulated around the health and wellbeing of our occupants.
We recognise that our industry significantly contributes to the global carbon footprint, and we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment. By making our spaces more efficient, developing in a sustainable way, and always looking for new and better ways of doing things we deliver on our ESG targets while offering the very best experiences for our customers.
Our ambition level
Our ESG strategy is built around three focus areas addressing the most relevant environmental and social trends to create value for our stakeholders: Future-proof buildings, Energy & Carbon and Social Engagement. Improving our ESG performance has been an integral part of our long-term value creation strategy.

Our culture is based on the principles of mutual respect and non-discrimination irrespective of nationality, age, disability, gender, religion or sexual orientation.
