Accelerate materiality impact

Sustainable business has always been part of our DNA. Our track record in recent years is the clearest evidence of our commitment to sustainable value growth rather than short-term profit. We took essential steps to converte the Montea DNA into a clear vision and sustainability strategy for the medium (2030) and long (2050) term.

New developments

  • 2022: 25% less CO2 emissions (embodied carbon) compared to 2021
  • 2030: 55% less CO2-emissions (embodied carbon) compared to 2021
  • 2050: all new construction projects are CO2 net zero.

Montea invests in strategic locations that permit multifunctional and multimodal solutions

  • Intermodal network expansion: investing in locations with good connections to road, rail, waterways and/or airports.
  • Multifunctional: create buildings that are suitable for multiple uses/types of users and thus have a longer life cycle.
  • Maximum use of space: Montea wants to ensure that the limited space available is always used optimally. That is why Montea tries to focus on brownfield and greyfield redevelopment projects, as well as infill development projects.

Montea designs versatile warehouses that are long-term investments

  • Longevity: build robust warehouses with materials that last and with a design that allows different use by different customers.
  • Encourage reuse of materials
