Berlin, 30 January 2017 - TLG IMMOBILIEN AG has been restructuring its supply of electricity and gas since the start of 2017. The company plans to gradually replace all regional and administratively burdensome supply contracts with a general agreement with the public utility company MüllheimStaufen GmbH. These measures include the transitioning of its energy supply to electricity from renewable energy sources and carbon-neutral natural gas produced using environmentally-friendly production methods.
The new contract has a term of 5 years. The restructuring of the company's energy procurement will lower the average allocable energy costs for tenants across all properties and for the space used by TLG IMMOBILIEN AG itself by more than 20% in future. It will also reduce the volume of administrative work required to manage the company's contracts considerably.
The annual energy requirements of the properties of TLG IMMOBILIEN AG covered by this contract total approx. 13 GWh of electricity for general, vacant and administrative space and around 9.6 GWh of energy from gas. This is equivalent to the energy requirements of 5,580 three-person households and therefore a small town. By transitioning, TLG IMMOBILIEN AG will cut its CO2 emissions by around 9,500 tonnes per year.
This measure represents another step towards the sustainable company management described in detail in the first Sustainability Report published last year in November. The report is available to download here:
