Sustainable business premises

Properties' lifecycle influences sustainability

Sustainability targets affect also company's business premises. The sustainability of business premises is a value choice alongside the company’s other sustainability choices.

What does sustainable property development that takes ESG values into account and is future-proof mean?

The responsibility and sustainability of property development and business premises construction can be considered from many different points of view. The ESG breakdown provides an excellent framework for such considerations that clarifies and facilitates the addressing of different themes.

Environment – criteria for environmental responsibility

The renewable natural resources produced by the Earth over a year are currently already used up nearly halfway through the year. In order to preserve the preconditions for a good life for future generations, it is important that we all take steps to reduce consumption and update our actions to comply with the principles of sustainable development. As a property developer and builder, we have a great responsibility to use materials with the smallest possible carbon footprint, and at the same time increase the sorting rate of our construction site waste in a determined way.

Social – criteria for social responsibility

We are aware of our own responsibility in developing our society and building a better living environment. Our task is to identify the effects of global megatrends on the property market and provide our customers with future-proof and responsible solutions for business premises that increase the well-being of personnel.

Governance – criteria for governance responsibility

Responsible construction also includes employment and building contracts to ensure that we do not use illegal labour or trample on employment contracts on our construction sites. We undertake to comply with the principles of good corporate governance and YIT Code of Conduct.
