Green Pfandbrief

Just like traditional Mortgage Pfandbriefe, Berlin Hyp’s Green Pfandbriefe are used to finance or refinance mortgage backed real estate loans. Properties used for a Green Pfandbrief have been awarded an appropriate energy performance certificate or a green building certificate from internationally recognized certification bodies. In addition, they have to meet certain sustainability standards that have been set in cooperation with the sustainability rating agency oekom research AG. Green Pfandbriefe are issued under Berlin Hyp’s Green Bond Programme. According to oekom’s second party opinion dated 22 August 2016, they are characterized by their good sustainability quality. It is ensured that the amount that corresponds with the issue proceeds from Green Pfandbriefe is invested in sustainable projects.
