We are committed to the Paris Climate Agreement and our objectives, to be achieved by 2030, are carbon neutrality in our own operations and emission reductions of over 30% in construction, using 2019 as the baseline.
We promote the achievement of the objectives at Helsingin Waltari as follows:
Among other things, carbon footprint calculations are used in residential construction for choosing materials that place less burden on the environment.
Kitchens, bathrooms and toilets are equipped with water-saving water fixtures such as taps.
Waste sorting system at home
Kitchens are equipped with a waste sorting system to help with recycling.
Recycling at a housing company
The process of sorting waste for recycling is tidy and efficient thanks to modern recycling points in housing companies.
Electric car charging points
Some of the parking spaces in a new residential building include the option to install a charging point for an electric car, which makes the installation of the charging device possible as needed.
Apartment-specific monitoring of consumption in YIT’s own service channel (YIT Plus) helps in water-saving.
Monitoring of technical building systems
YIT’s Valvomo-service (Control room) takes care of, for example, the energy-efficient use of ventilation and heating.
