Traditional Developers Shift Focus To Sustainability

NewsNov 9, 2021

Taurus Investment Holdings, a global developer for more than four decades, has shifted its strategy to focus on sustainability. It has also established multiple lines of business around those initiatives. Founded in Germany in 1976, the company cites its European roots as exerting a substantial influence on its sustainability focus.

Combining the strength of its in-house experts in multifamily, office, logistics, energy engineering and renewable energy, the company created targeted, scalable investment strategies on four continents for its partners. “There is a massive movement in the real estate industry toward being ‘green,’” Peter A. Merrigan, Taurus CEO and managing partner, says. “The reality is the majority are falling short of what needs to be done.

“Taurus and its subsidiaries are focused on using innovative energy efficient technologies to make the extensive infrastructure investments required to decarbonize residential and commercial buildings. We’re utilizing existing technologies such as geothermal heating and cooling, advanced air source heat pumps, solar photovoltaics and other sustainable technologies such as electric vehicle charging, which help transform new and existing real estate real estate assets.”
