The topic of "sustainable renovation" is to be firmly anchored in UBS's advisory processes. Not just when taking out a mortgage, but with a view to the entire client relationship. "In NORM, we have found an innovative partner that can suggest specific and sensible packages of measures for energy-efficient refurbishment to our clients - and do so purely digitally. This allows our advisors to focus on showing clients the specific impact of a sustainable renovation on the value of their home and supporting them with financing," says Alfred Ledermann, Co-Head Client Needs at UBS Switzerland AG.

NORM was founded with the vision of decarbonizing the building stock. "Our strategy is based on working with partners who share our vision and have an extensive real estate portfolio. This allows us to reach a large number of property owners and achieve maximum impact," explains Gian Reto à Porta, CEO of NORM. The partnership with UBS is an important milestone on the way to achieving this vision.

NORM's digital solution is characterized by its simplicity and accessibility. NORM's energy experts analyze each property individually and put together a tailored package of renovation measures, including cost estimates and available subsidies. In this way, property owners are supported in preparing their building for a sustainable future and reducing CO₂ emissions in a targeted manner.

UBS clients can find out more about the new offer and how they can benefit from this partnership on this UBS website.
