What does your company do and what value do you create today?
Estateguru is a leading European real estate financing and investment platform focused on short-term commercial loans secured by real estate. We bring the opportunity to invest in real estate to all people. We want strong entrepreneurs not to be left without the necessary financing and to get quick and flexible access to capital to implement their plans. Therefore, Estateguru’s mission is to provide entrepreneurs with flexible and quick capital and to contribute to the investor’s financial freedom and performance goals.
What motivated you to join GreenDice?
We want to give something back, we want to leave the world in better conditions than we found it. Through such projects, we want to draw attention to activities that help save the environment and build a better future.
Have you implemented green and circular economy principles in the company and how?
We believe that by promoting responsible and sustainable business practices in our investment strategies and the companies we invest in, we can both improve our business results and contribute to a more stable and sustainable society and a more inclusive global economy. Environmental factors such as energy efficiency, water consumption and waste generation have a major impact on a property’s sustainability profile and performance, thereby helping to combat climate change.
Our core processes are 90% digitized. We are trying to achieve Green Office certification in our head office by minimizing our footprint by recycling, waste management and, for example, installing bird boxes in Estonian forests.
Why is it important for you to contribute primarily to the development of Estonia and other societies?
Estateguru specializes in real estate secured loans, making us real estate experts. Since buildings account for about a third of the final energy consumption and half of the world’s electricity consumption, we consider it very important and relevant to take a stand and contribute to making the world a better place to live. We also consider it our responsibility to reduce and mitigate environmental, social and governance risks in our business operations.
