Developing living space

All-round commitment to a growing city

GESOBAU AGSustainability report and brochure (online and print)

Berlin’s state-owned housing company provides homes for 100,000 people. GESOBAU does a lot to ensure that its tenants are satisfied. That’s why it has put half a billion euros into modernisation over the last few years.


Housing is currently one of the most sensitive issues in the German capital. This can be seen in the intense debates on the rent cap and considerations around the expropriation of real estate companies. The six state-owned housing companies – including GESOBAU – are called on again and again to help find a solution to the housing shortage.


With the promise of “Developing living space – for our tenants, for Berlin” as its guiding theme, the company provides a broad insight into its activities and progress in its sustainability report. A variety of examples help to illustrate this.
