Corporate social responsibility is a prerequisite for achieving long-term profitability. Hufvudstaden strives to achieve sustainable development in the light of financial, environmental and social factors.
Sustainability at Hufvudstaden is based on our strategies and values. Our work involves assuming long-term responsibility with regard to financial development and environmental and social issues. This creates good conditions for achieving our sustainability objectives in areas such as choice of materials and measures that can be taken to reduce our energy use.
Together with the City of Stockholm and the City of Gothenburg, we work actively on issues related to urban development in our immediate environment. As we are one of the larger property owners, there is also the potential to influence the industry with regard to sustainability issues by being actively involved in different organizations and associations.
Hufvudstaden takes part in a number of sustainability surveys, including the Carbon Disclosure project (CDP) where again this year we have emerged as one of the foremost property companies in
the Nordic region.
Our environmental work has also been analyzed and approved for investment in the Swedbank Robur Sustainability Funds.
With effect from the Annual Report for 2011, we will present our work related to sustainability issues in accordance with GRI (Global Reporting Initiative). Hufvudstaden's Sustainability Report comprises Annual Report as well as the GRI Report and Index. We have chosen to report on core level and according to GRI G4.
