  • Mandate involves four properties with combined floor area of around 25,000 sqm
  • First assets to be managed by HPM under the agreement include a centrally located mixed office/retail building in Hamburg and a property in Berlin

Hamburg, 1 July 2021 – HIH Property Management GmbH (HPM) has taken over the management of four office properties held in a fund portfolio managed by QUEST Funds. The mandate involves the property management of one asset each in Hamburg, Berlin, Munich and Frankfurt, the properties being held in an investment fund portfolio. The investment focus of QUEST Funds is on office real estate with value-added potential in central high-street locations with high footfall in major German cities.

The first property under HPM’s management on behalf of the new client since 1 June 2021 is a centrally located mixed office and retail building in Hamburg. In addition, HPM started managing a property in Berlin on 1 July 2021. Another office property of the same fund portfolio will be added before the end of 2021, this one located in Frankfurt, and a fourth office building in Munich in 2022 or later. The combined lettable area covers around 25,000 square metres.

HIH Property Management Introduces Central Waste Management to Optimise CO2 Footprint


HIH Property Management Introduces Central Waste Management to Optimise CO2 Footprint

  • HPM collaborates LINS Recycling GmbH & Co. KG
  • Waste management to be introduced for around 200 properties by the end of the year; additional properties under consideration

Hamburg, 15. June 2021 – HIH Property Management (HPM) collaborates with LINS Recycling GmbH & Co. KG, a consultancy firm specialised in waste disposal issues, to introduce a central waste management. In addition to power, heat and water consumption data, HPM will also collect waste data in future. Collecting and analysing the data will enable HPM to keep optimising the CO2 footprint of the properties in its care. For the time being, the new system will be introduced for around 200 properties owned by various clients.

“The relevant data for tracking waste volumes are rather difficult to collect because some waste fractions are identified neither on the invoices received from private disposal companies nor by municipal notifications of charges. Thanks to the collaboration with LINKS Recycling, we now have the possibility to aggregate data like, for example, the quantities of the various waste fractions and their recycling routes at the properties. This way, our property managers get an overview of all the waste data they need to optimise things in the medium term,” said Christian Kypke, Member of the Board of HPM.

“The central waste management will moreover be an integral component of our ESG consultancy. These roughly 200 assets are just a beginning. We are in talks with our clients to integrate additional assets and to thereby improve our carbon footprint,” elaborated André Vollbach, Managing Director of HPM.

LINKS Recycling acts as central contact, handles the coordination with the municipalities and the private waste disposal companies, optimises the waste management concept, and gathers the necessary data.

HIH Property Management Further Expands its ESG Unit


HIH Property Management Further Expands its ESG Unit

  • HPM hires young sustainability professionals as Business Development Managers Sustainability
  • HPM to upgrade 291 electricity meters at nearly 180 properties for smart metering in Q2 2021
  • New sustainability clause integrated in HPM employment contracts
  • HPM has been a member of the ICG Institute for Corporate Governance since 1 January 2021

Hamburg, 17. March 2021 – HIH Property Management GmbH (HPM) implemented its next ESG steps at the start of this year. On 1 February 2021, Felix Sasse (29) and Stefan Klingenberg (32) assumed their position as Business Development Manager Sustainability at HPM. Both sustainability managers have a “green” academic background, Felix Sasse having graduated with a B.Sc. in sustainability science and Stefan Klingenberg having taken out a B.Sc. in nature conservation and landscape planning.

The company’s new sustainability clause was already integrated in their employment contracts. On 1 January 2021, HPM started writing it into all employment contract of HPM’s new recruits and will have added it to all existing employment contracts by mid-year 2021. The purpose of the clause is to stipulate, in line with German labour law, that both employer and employee will structure the employment relationship according to sustainability criteria and will strive to conserve energy and other resources as much as possible. Employees moreover agree to implement the measures and recommendations of the company’s sustainability initiatives. By the end of February 2021, as many as 85 percent of the 240 employees of HPM had already added sustainability criteria to their employment relationships in writing.

Christian Kypke, member of the senior management and responsible for ESG, stated: “Our ambition is to become one of Germany’s most sustainable property managers. The only way to accomplish this is by bringing in the necessary know-how and adequate human resources. With this in mind, we are very glad that Felix Sasse and Stefan Klingenberg are reinforcing our ESG unit. One aspect of their work will be to push forward with our ongoing smart metering projects (electricity, gas, clean water and wastewater, district heating).”

Smart metering is a key component in the digitisation of the nationwide meter infrastructure. During the second quarter of 2021, HPM will be replacing 291 meters at nearly 180 properties with smart meters. These will be connected to an online platform so that meter readouts and consumption data can be digitally reported and automatically evaluated. In early March 2021, the contract to provide this service was awarded to a nationally operating service partner. It is one of the prerequisites for efficient and ESG-compliant reporting.

In keeping with its ESG mission, HPM became a member of the ICG Institute for Corporate Governance in the German Real Estate Industry on 1 January 2021. “We are looking forward to reviewing its guidance for value-based sustainable corporate governance,” said André Vollbach, Managing Director. ICG members are committed to the principles of fair and ethical business conduct, integrity, transparency, professionalism, control, accountability, and value-based, sustainable corporate governance.
