Our Sustainability Efforts
Sustainability is at the core of everything we do. We operate in an industry that has a considerable impact on the environment. Real estate accounts for about 40% of Sweden’s total energy consumption and the construction sector accounts for about 30% of all generated waste. We, along with our industry, have a great responsibility. In all our sustainability efforts, we are guided by the 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations.
Our Sustainability Goals
With humans at the center, our overall objective is to lead our industry towards a sustainable society. We will give back more than we take. By 2023, the energy consumption in our properties will on average be no more than 100 kWh/square meter. We will certify 100% of our properties and become completely climate neutral by 2030.
Since 2011, Areim has been certified according to Svensk Miljöbas. The company has also been a member of Swedish Green Building Council (“SGBC”) since 2010. Our aim is to always develop and improve our properties in order to meet the standards for environmental certifications as specified by for example LEED and Green Building.
