Deutsche Wohnen AG Presents First Sustainability Report

Berlin/Munich, 9 October, 2013 Deutsche Wohnen presented its first
sustainability report today as part of the 16th international real estate
trade fair EXPO REAL. The report conforms to the international standards of
the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the industry-specific
requirements of the European Public Real Estate Association (EPRA). It
achieved application level B+ and was officially verified by the GRI. In
publishing this report, Deutsche Wohnen is primarily addressing interested
financial market experts and political experts, and is providing
comprehensive information about its sustainability strategy as well as
central economic, ecological and social key figures.

More Than Just Growth, the title of the sustainability report, represents
the commitment of Deutsche Wohnen to generating sustainable growth,
remaining successful in the long term, and continuing to be an attractive
employer. 'Housing provision and demographic change are key challenges that
the Deutsche Wohnen Group is facing. We believe that responsible company
management should avoid risks and make the most of opportunities,' explains
Michael Zahn, Chief Executive Officer at Deutsche Wohnen AG. The
sustainability program, presented publicly for the first time, is set to be
developed in the coming years.

To ensure that the sustainability strategy and the corresponding reporting
process can be established on a solid foundation, Deutsche Wohnen asked its
main stakeholders for their opinions on the company. For this purpose,
interviews were held with investors, tenants, political representatives,
journalists and business partners, and an online questionnaire was carried
out with around 550 stakeholders taking part.

A comprehensive online document is available on the website
www.deutsche-wohnen.com/html/en/press-releases.php in addition to the
printed publication. The sustainability report was compiled in
collaboration with the German agencies akzente (Munich) and HGB (Hamburg).
