Sustainability has been at the centre of Areim’s heart since day one and we are committed to being a sustainability leader within our industry. We want to build a stronger, more adaptable, and sustainable society which at the same time creates greater value for our investors and other important stakeholders.
Furthermore, the real estate sector has strong impact on what the cities of the future will look like and what social issues will be of importance to its population. 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. We also align our business with UN Global Compacts Ten Principles on Human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.

Our sustainability goals
Our ambition is to be a sustainability leader within our industry. We believe in a future with a circular mind-set where the new is built with the old and where health and good social relationships are essential to building diverse and thriving communities. We want to revive local neighbourhoods through turning brown properties into green and create smart and inclusive spaces where people matter, share and care.
We focus on the three aspects of sustainability – environment, social and governance. To us this means turning brown into green, that we care for people, and we want to deliver sustainable results.
We turn brown into green defines our environmental impact, objectives, and commitments with focus on climate impact and circularity as well as smarter properties and communities. We are committed to being an organisation with net zero emissions by 2030 and we are taking the necessary steps to reach this goal. We also strive to develop environmentally smart properties, trying to reduce their climate impact as much as possible through a “reduce and reuse” approach as well as making environmentally sensible material choices.
We care for people is our commitment to looking after and caring for our stakeholders as well as creating value for them. We are committed to our colleagues, tenants, suppliers, investors, and other stakeholders ensuring long-term social benefits that go beyond just our properties.

How we do it
In addition, we typically increase the building density in the built environment. This means not only a reduced environmental footprint per capita, higher efficiency and lower costs for everything from fire-fighting services, to energy and water consumption but also a more living, dynamic and safer environment.
Our target is to having 100 per cent of our investments green building certified by time of divestment. It is always our aim to develop and improve our properties to meet the standards for well-known environmental certifications as specified by for example LEED, BREEAM and Nordic Swan Ecolabel (Svanen)
We acknowledge the importance of memberships in industry associations, national and international organizations, and bodies. Areim is a member of Sweden Green Building Council, The Stockholm Climate Pact and Green Building Council Finland as well as a signatory to UN Global Compact and UN PRI.
