Home.Earth is a real estate company committed to improving the social and environmental footprint of the built environment. Across how we design, build and operate our buildings, we work systematically with developing properties that are more people and planet positive. Here’s how we make a difference. Environmental sustainability: We strive to minimize the carbon footprint of our developments and to build within the planetary boundaries, while also adding biodiversity to all sites. Inclusivity: We design our buildings for community and a sense of belonging, and strive to establish a new relationship between our customers and ourselves as a landlord based on trust and respect. Affordability: We remove or minimize deposits and pre-paid rent, aim to have no evictions, and work on introducing a model where part of our value-creation can be shared with our residents. Finally, we take a long-term perspective in everything we do, and the company is structured to ensure that we are always guided by our purpose.
