Sustainability report examined and approved by third party
Fabege commissioned Deloitte to audit the 2012 Sustainability Report and the auditors have found that the Report complies with Level C+ of the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) reporting requirements. Fabege conducts objective, systematic and preventive environmental work. A tangible example of the company’s sustainable efforts is the energy enhancement work implemented by the company, which combine positive environmental effects with cost savings for tenants and Fabege.
“I am proud of our contribution to a sustainable urban development. We have succeeded in reducing CO2emissions by 90 per cent in ten years, but we will not stop there – we will continue to work systematically on enhancing the energy efficiency of our properties,” says Christian Hermelin, CEO of Fabege.
During 2012, Fabege reduced its heating consumption by an additional 4 per cent and is now approximately 50 per cent below the average reported by the Swedish Energy Agency for the Stockholm County Council’s climate zone. This means that Fabege’s heating consumption already satisfies the energy-efficiency targets set by the EU for 2050. The favourable performance is partly due to intensive work on optimising operations and partly to investments in energy efficient technology.
Fabege is active in several networks where the common objective is to reduce the environmental and climate impact of properties and city districts. Examples of such cooperation include BELOK, Sweden Green Building Council and Klimatpakten.
