W5 Group prioritizes ESG principles to build lasting value, understanding that sustainable practices benefit the environment, the community and the company´s long-term success.

ESG Approach

W5 Group’s ESG strategy is founded on the conviction that integrating ESG principles into our business and investment decisions can yield enduring value for our clients, partners and society.

While our main objective is fulfilling our fiduciary responsibility for sustainable, positive investment returns, real estate provides distinctive opportunities to align with environmental and social objectives. We collaborate with partners to evaluate and integrate relevant elements into our properties.

Best Buddies Living at W5’s Projects

Ralph Winter, a dedicated Best Buddies board member, has established a longstanding partnership with Best Buddies International. Through this collaboration, W5 Group has successfully introduced the Best Buddies Living program across its extensive portfolio.

This transformative initiative is specifically crafted to nurture an inclusive environment, fostering meaningful connections between individuals with and without Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD).

The goal is to empower all participants to become engaged, contributing citizens. The program centers around the promotion of independent living within a vibrant and supportive community, creating a space where individuals can not only learn but also grow and thrive.
