Urban sprawl contributes to environmental and social degradation and correlates with increased energy use, pollution, traffic congestion and a decline in community distinctiveness and cohesiveness. This phenomenon also leads to the destruction of wildlife habitat and the fragmentation of remaining natural areas.
By regenerating derelict industrial land into vibrant and attractive neighborhoods, Ginkgo aims to address the long-term environmental, economic and social challenges generated by urban sprawl, while delivering the quantity and quality of homes and offices needed in some of the most dynamic European regions.
Sustainable urban regeneration
Ginkgoʼs investment philosophy is to “sustainably rebuild the city on the city”. This approach has shaped our investment strategy which involves the acquisition of a portfolio of well-located, environmentally-impaired sites, the remediation of the land using innovative and environmentally respectful remediation techniques and the redevelopment of the sites in accordance with the urban planning strategy of the local authority, in order to create sustainable mixed-used neighbourhoods.
