Highly professional, transparent and values-based corporate management/supervision is becoming increasingly important. This also applies particularly to the German real estate industry, which – also due to the impact made by the ICG – has recently grown in reputation, but still faces immense challenges for the future.


The objective of the ICG is to improve the competitiveness of the German real estate industry by means of greater transparency, professionalism and integrity. In this context, the Institute has developed a values code, guidelines, and a set of rules for the implementation and maintenance of better corporate management and supervision.
