Everything we do affects us and our Planet. That's why, at Echo Investment Group, we're making changes so that we can live and work even better.

We co-create sustainable cities and spaces. We strive to ensure that our projects are built in areas that are already urbanised, with adequate infrastructure and urban comfort. We care that each project improves local biodiversity.
We have begun the process of reducing CO2 emissions in our offices and in projects we develop, with the aim of being carbon neutral in operation by 2030. We have been promoting renewable energy, using it both for our own needs and in buildings used by others.
We are supported in achieving our goals by a step-by-step roadmap leading the Group towards decarbonisation, zero-carbon buildings, further increasing the role of greenery in our projects and supporting sound urban development.
