We continuously work to reduce our CO2 emissions and our energy consumption. Over time we have clearly reduced these emissions even as our operations have expanded, thanks to continuous energy efficiency enhancements and purchases of renewable energy.
When you sign a lease with Wihlborgs, you can be confident that we run ur business in a austainable way and with a long-term perspective and Green leases are our standard.
Our environmental initiatives are governed by our environmental policy and our environmental and climate goals, but also by our responsibilities linked to the UN SDGs and participation in external initiatives such as Fossil-free Sweden, LFM30 – the local roadmap for a climate neutral construction sector in Malmö by 2030, and several others. We also set requirements for our suppliers in terms of environmental impact.
The greatest environmental challenge we face is how we contribute to reducing the climate impact of our operations.
Target 2022: Our CO2 emissions in scopes 1–2 (direct emissions from own operations and indirect emissions from purchased energy) shall fall below 1.5 kg CO2 equivalents per square metre by the end of 2022. We have also established a long term target for our total CO2 emissions that has been approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi).
Wihlborgs is continually focused on reducing its environmental impact and developing properties with a strong environmental performance and a positive work environment. Environmental certification is one way to measure these efforts.
Target 2022: 80 percent of the floor space of Wihlborgs’ office buildings in Sweden shall be environmentally certified by the end of 2022. The long-term target is for 100 percent of our properties within the Group to be environmentally certified.
