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 Tampereen Kesätuuli as follows:
Among other things, carbon footprint calculations are used in residential construction for choosing materials that place less burden on the environment.
Renewable electricity at a construction site
Wind-generated electricity is the only source of energy used at construction sites.
Recycling at a construction site
At least 75% of the construction waste at a construction site is being sorted for recycling.
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 waste 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, in the future, will lead to the removal of garbage trucks out of service.
Unmatched in being the number one choice amongst zero-emission heating systems, geothermal heat makes the heating of apartments and domestic water possible.
Electric car charging points
All 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.
