We work methodically to develop and improve our operations from an environmental and sustainability point of view.
Hufvudstaden's biggest source of environmental impact is energy use for operating the properties. Consequently, long-term work is taking place on the operational level to reduce energy use and in doing so reduce carbon emissions.
"When you have been operating since 1915, it is natural to think a few generations ahead."
Construction and renovation are also prioritized areas. Hufvudstaden therefore makes a whole series of environmental demands regarding the construction products that are used. In addition, we attempt to create solutions that are sustainable in the long term and which are flexible and easy to adapt to the varying requirements of the tenants.
In 2012, Hufvudstaden took part in the Carbon Disclosure Project, a worldwide survey of the largest listed companies with a focus on climate work and climate impact.
Hufvudstaden received the highest score of all property companies and came first among all the companies included in the survey in Sweden. This is an indication that our environmental programme is being pursued in the right direction.
In everything we do, both large and small, we attempt constantly to make better environmental choices. As far as possible, we use ecolabelled products and we share our knowledge with our tenants. This could involve recycling at source and energy-smart lighting. We lay down concrete environmental objectives each year.
