Both achievements demonstrate that Kungsleden’s sustainability work is yielding results and is aligned with the target of becoming climate positive in property management activities by 2025, and throughout the value chain by 2035.

“We are pleased that our goal-oriented and ambitious work with sustainability has yielded results, and we will be continuously making improvements to reach our ambitious targets. Transparency, clarity and high sustainability performance in our properties are key issues for us,” says Erik Florman, Head of Sustainability, Kungsleden.
