In 2019, we committed to halve the material emissions of our residential buildings by 2030, and we aim to heat YIT Homes carbon neutrally.
This is how we aim to achieve these objectives in Porvoon Charlotta:
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
In a pipeline-based collection system the waste is inserted into the pipe through a hatch located on the external wall of the residential building. The waste travels straight through the pipe to a recycling location, which makes the use of garbage trucks redundant.
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.
