Garanti Bank finances the First Green Home Certificated residential project of Bucharest


Garanti Bank actively supports projects that endorse Romanian entrepreneurship, sustainable development and respect for the environment, as well as other initiatives that have a positive impact on the community. As a proof for this commitment, Garanti Bank prolongs the company's partnership with One United Properties, a leading real estate developer in Bucharest.

Garanti Bank started its collaboration with the real estate company in 2009, contributing to their promise of accelerating the adoption of building practices that result in energy-efficient, healthier and environmentally sustainable buildings. Since the begining of this partnership, Garanti Bank granted One United Properties loans in total amount of more than 30 million Euro, the financing being used for developing premium sustainable residential compounds.

"We are delighted to be part of initiatives that bring a better tomorrow. Moreover, we believe in longtime partnerships, this being the case of our relation with One United Properties. They were just in the early stages of this business when we started our collaboration. Now, they are one of the key players in the high-end residential market. We have trusted the sustainability of their projects. More than figures and return of investments, in our case this is a strong relationship built during years. Trust is something that it is proven over time and that we invest in all of our relationships with our customers, as part of our promise to them", stated Bilge Demirer, Commercial & SME Banking Director, Garanti Bank.

One Herastrau Park is the first residential complex in Bucharest with "Green Homes" certification, Excellence level, from Romania Green Building Council.

Earlier this year, Garanti Bank has become a member of the Romanian Green Building Council (RoGBC), confirming the financial institution's commitment to support sustainability in the construction and real estate industry in Romania.
