Hines has been recognized with four first place awards at the 2021 Global PERE Awards: ESG Firm of the Year: Global; Firm of the Year: Germany; Firm of the Year: France, and Firm of the Year: Southern Europe.
This major milestone recognized the area of ESG, which Hines believes supports innovation and benefits people and the planet.
"We could not have earned these awards without the hard work our teams do every day to strengthen Hines' global presence. We look forward to the growth and success 2022 will bring as we work to continue to strengthen leadership and position within ESG and our investment, development and management platforms."
Established a new ESG team including a Global Head of ESG, VP-Carbon Strategy, VP-Global ESG and an ESG Senior Leadership Council.
Partnered with structural and civil engineering firm Magnusson Klemencic Associates to develop an embodied carbon reduction guide for new developments. See how Hines is taking leadership on carbon reduction with our Embodied Carbon Reduction Roadmap.

We closed on €2.3bn of new transactions including the off-market acquisition of MediaWorks Munich, which will be one of Hines Germany’s largest urban office developments with total project costs of more than €1bn. Thirty-six apartments for disabled and socially disadvantaged tenants and amenity spaces such as a music room including a grand piano, fitness room, kindergarten, barbecue station and the full digitalisation including an app and digital metering have been included at Südkreuz.
