Susanne joined CTP following the termination of her active partner role at PwC Germany where she served as Head of Real Estate. With 30 years of experience in strategic and operational consulting in financial services, real estate services, funds and companies, Susanne knows that the future of the industry will not happen without sustainability. Due to her professional background and leadership in innovation Susanne was appointed as the chair of the board of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Germany, where she drives several working groups on the implementation of the EU Green Deal. Susanne’s high professional rankings paired with her future leaning environmental concerns have placed her on several real estate advisory positions.

We prioritise effective corporate governance practices and work consistently to build a transparent work environment at all levels of our organisation. The tone for this is set at the top. Our one-tier board, comprised of Executive and Non-Executive Directors, oversees the company’s operations, ensures compliance, and upholds the interests of our stakeholders. The Non-Executive Directors supervise the performance of duties of the Executive Directors and the general affairs and business of CTP, help develop proposals on strategy and supervise implementation of the strategy. We adhere diligently to applicable laws and regulations and have established Board-level committees that ensure responsible, fair and transparent decision-making in the Audit, Nomination and Remuneration, Sustainability Committees and in the Board. Our Board of Directors is committed to creating long-term value while considering the impact of our actions throughout the value chain.

Our flat management structure enables quick decision-making, fostering a dynamic and responsive work environment. We actively manage risks and ensure compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and industry standards. Our commitment to integrity is reflected in our comprehensive policies, such as our Code of Conduct, Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy, and Insider Trading Policy. These policies outline our expectations for ethical behaviour and guide our interactions with employees, stakeholders, and business partners.

Inclusion & Equal Opportunities
CTP values diversity, equity, and inclusion as integral components of our organizational culture. We prioritize talent, experience, and attitude in our recruitment process, fostering a diverse and motivated workforce.

We value open communication and provide multiple channels for employees to raise concerns or grievances. Our anonymous intranet grievance channel, accessible via email or phone, allows employees to report any issues they may encounter.
We also have a whistleblower policy in place, encouraging employees to first approach their managers but providing an alternative channel if necessary. This channel ensures anonymity and protects whistleblowers. We take all concerns seriously and investigate them promptly, reinforcing our commitment to maintaining a safe and ethical work environment where individuals feel comfortable speaking up.
We understand the significance of the EU Taxonomy in promoting sustainability in the economy. That’s why we are transparent about our eligibility and alignment with the Taxonomy’s requirements. Through an analysis in 2022, we have determined the eligibility of our core business operations, ensuring they align with the Taxonomy’s guidelines. We have adapted our policies and processes to meet the minimum social safeguard requirements and ensure alignment across various criteria. As we continue to develop our properties, we are committed to meeting the technical screening criteria and further increasing our alignment with the EU Taxonomy.
