WE ARE GREEN IN ESSENCE

Before inviting you to do business with the sun, the moon and the water, let us introduce ourselves: We are Contempo, the first company to design, build and manage real estate investment portfolios in Colombia, always respecting the environment in all processes.  Do you know why we do it in this way? Because this business model has allowed us to demonstrate that environmental sustainability and making efficient use of resources is great business.

 

When you hear about Contempo, you will hear about Contempo Green & Gold Business Economy.

 

And this is our goal: change the Green of responsible consumption of resources into the Gold of the verifiable economic saving and the generation of commercial value.

At Contempo we have demonstrated that the responsible consumption of natural resources generates verifiable economic savings for companies from the very first day. This is what we call business eco-nomy. All our projects are great business for the planet and for our customers. These are our numbers:

Energy Savings (24% - 50%)

Fewer CO emissions (33% - 39%)

Drinkable water savings (40%)

Less amount of solid waste (70%)

To believe in the sun, the rain and the water in order to generate wealth in companies is a reality in Colombia and the world. The efficient use of natural light, planning the management of rain water and the saving of drinkable water, among other variables that go from the management of wastes to the quality of interior environment, are conditions that today are demanded by the most important companies in the world given their commitment with the environment, the well-being and the productivity of their employees, as well as the savings in the payment of utilities in the long term.

We are founding members of the “Consejo Colombiano de la ConstrucciónSostenible” – “Colombian Council of Sustainable Construction - (www.cccs.org.co) through which we lead the development of sustainable practices in the national industry.

HISTORY

Our dream started in 1969, when well known architect Luis Eduardo Torres founded the company. Thanks to his knowledge and professional career with more than 60 designed and built projects, Torres developed an optimal strategy for the growth and stability of the company during the different economic cycles. In 2003 an important event takes place for our company. In this year, the second generation of the company takes over the control of the company and with this change come innovations that give a new scope to our company: An innovating managerial model based on values (Values- Based Management). At Contempo, our focus is the development of real estate office, hotel and commerce projects which are friendly with the environment in order to generate sustainability and profitability. With a new scheme of Corporate Governance and a family protocol, we have focused on implementing the best international practices. Besides this, we are the founding members of the “Consejo Colombiano de Construcción Sostenible”.
