The housing association STADT UND LAND manages around 40,000 of its own properties and 6,500 on behalf of third parties. Alongside these properties, the association also manages courtyards, playgrounds, gardens and other green spaces, making STADT UND LAND one of the six largest housing associations in Berlin.
STADT UND LAND's properties are found in the five Berlin boroughs Neukölln, Tempelhof-Schöneberg, Steglitz-Zehlendorf, Marzahn-Hellersdorf and Treptow-Köpenick. It also has properties in Neuenhagen and Fredersdorf in the Federal State of Brandenburg.
As a public holding company, STADT UND LAND makes a substantial contribution to the development of residential areas and their social stability. This is accompanied by a commitment to carry out local community work to promote quality housing and good relationships in the neighbourhood.
In 1998, STADT UND LAND started to use an active environmental management system, which was later certified in 2005 as complying with the EU standard EMAS. Following the further development of the system, in 2008 the company was certified as complying with ISO 14001. Since June 2011, the environmental management system has been certified as an integrated management system exclusively based on ISO 14001.
The housing company aims to carry out active environmental management, for example through improving household sorting of materials for recycling. Since 2009 STADT UND LAND has been running one of two pilot schemes to introduce an Orange Box for small electrical appliances, wood, toys, metals, plastics and old textiles on behalf of the Berliner Stadtreinigungsbetriebe. STADT UND LAND was the first company to receive a "CO2 and Recycling Passport" for improved waste sorting in the Rollberg estate in Neukölln.
STADT UND LAND is a member of the BBU and contributes to meeting the objectives in the Climate Protection Agreement signed with the Berlin Senate.
