Slättö's sustainability report
Sustainability trends will reshape the future of the real estate industry. These trends create new risks and opportunities. The ability to anticipate and lead these changes while generating returns will be critical to Slättö's continued success as an investor and fund manager. In our latest sustainability report, you can read about our commitments and actions.
Buildings currently have a large carbon footprint, accounting for 37% of global energy-related carbon emissions. The industry must rapidly reduce its footprint to adapt and meet countries' net-zero targets. Saving energy and switching to renewable sources in buildings has been highly debated and in the future will all become clearer, driven by regulation, the geopolitical context and energy prices.
Regarding the social aspect, needs of housing in fast-growing urban areas will continue to grow, and the new housing must be affordable and contribute to social equality and integration.
In terms of governance by authorities, the demand for transparency and accountability is increasing. The EU's new legislation on sustainable finance aims to make it easier for investors to compare and reward fund managers who are leaders in sustainability.
Slättö will invest with these trends in mind as we scan for new investment opportunities and manage our portfolio. Our corporate culture - based on the values of Commitment, Entrepreneurship, Responsibility and Transparency - guides us as we test new innovations and dare to change the way we do business.
Slättö has committed to new sustainability goals for us as a fund manager and our portfolio. We now focus on improving the energy performance of older buildings and invest in the construction of new properties with environmental certification and EU green taxonomy criteria in mind. We have also made progress in measuring our carbon emissions throughout the value chain and are working with community organisations to contribute to safe, secure and fair housing.
