ING Real Estate Finance (REF) finances more than 17 million square metres of real estate in the Netherlands. They provide tailor-made financing and offer insight into local, regional and national market in the Netherlands. In addition, as market leader in the Netherlands, REF promotes measures to increase the sustainability of real estate.
REF helps its customers become more sustainable in many ways; one of the tools it offers is the energy monitoring of the Energy Robot. This tool is available to all REF customers free of charge. The ING Energy Robot identifies, estimates and reports energy saving options in buildings. This can reduce energy waste in buildings by 10-15%, which achieves 20-30% of the targets for Paris Proof.
“The real climate and financial impacts are measured not only with energy labels but also in combination with actual consumption. By offering our customers the ING Sustainable app, which they can use to simulate sustainability measures, along with the ING Energy Robot, both absolutely free of charge, we give owners and users a complete picture of the sustainability level of the property, so both can enjoy the benefits of increasing sustainability.”– Hein Wegdam, Director Sustainable Real Estate Products
This solution delivers maximum return and optimal sustainability for all ING REF customers. Every year, these customers save €30 million in energy costs and 92,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions. And all that without any additional investment in the system.
