Sustainability Meets Profitability – La French Tech Bucharest. “Gone are the days when business only meant profit. We must be careful with resources, stop wasting them. It is mandatory to change the way we do business”

The tensions put sustainability at the very center of the discussions, because then we see how important is the presence of natural resources, energy resources. When there are problems with sustainability, there are also problems with the surrounding world. Bucharest needs to significantly increase its quality of life. There is also a need for expansion to the areas around the city. The premise must be, however, not to destroy agricultural land for real estate purposes.

Alex Skouras, managing partner at Alesonor Real Estate Development: We don’t really have apartments with 5% VAT. At the same time, we sell 95% directly to families and we see a different way of approaching the project, the type of questions and how they come to the decision to buy

”I think that both parties, the builder and the developer, must feel that they are treated fairly. If there is an imbalance on one side it will automatically be reflected in the construction, in the project, at the time of the project and thus you can have builders who cannot deliver what you contracted to deliver.”

Alex Skouras, Founder & Managing Partner at Alesonor: “The introduction of a 5% taxation for the difference between the sale price and the value of 600,000 lei will lead to double taxation and will have an inflationary effect

„The measure on the reduction of tax facilities in construction will affect construction companies and thus, an entire workforce working in this sector. We will once again face a shortage of labor, who will probably prefer to leave and work outside the country," he declares. Among the negative long-term effects caused by price increases, Skouras lists the delay of execution times or the price increase for the end customer.

They were not just waking up in the morning going to the office and then coming back late at night and sleeping and the next day the same thing, but they started living in their house. They’re living in their home 24/7 for weeks and months, and they started realizing the quality of life that they are having, as business people, as husbands, wives, parents. And what we have seen coming pre-COVID, and after, when clearly the acceleration has been huge, was the importance of community which a real estate developer is able to create, first by designing it and then by building it.
