Slättö’s sustainable development strategy

Slättö has conducted an overall review of the business to identify key areas for our sustainability efforts. This materiality analysis included an evaluation of external factors, internal reviews of all business areas and dialogue with all our stakeholder groups.

Based on the materiality analysis and the prioritised sustainability issues, Slättö has defined three principal areas that form the basis of future-proofing our operations. Our agenda provides an integrated approach of the responsibilities we have and of our work going forward.

Environment and climate

Limiting global warming is a huge challenge for us all. Awareness of the climate issue and the desire to address it is constantly increasing – as is a sense of responsibility and understanding about it. The construction and property sector accounts for a substantial proportion of the world’s emissions, which means that Slättö in turn bears a considerable responsibility.

We want to contribute to urban development through the sustainable development of properties that meet the needs of today without jeopardizing future generations’ opportunities to meet theirs. Slättö will actively work with the transition to a sustainable future and strive to become a climate-neutral business. All investments are assessed on the basis of climate and environmental aspects to identify and promote materials, structures and installations with lower environmental impact.

Social responsibility

Our success is driven by our combined competence. We believe it is important that our workplace is characterised by an inclusive culture that encourages growth, and where differences are welcomed and promoted. We must never compromise on transparency or high standards in business ethics on which our business is based; and we should be proud of what we do. We are convinced that well-being and performance go hand-in-hand, which is why we want to support our employees’ private and occupational health with far-reaching wellness programmes, for example.


We collaborate with many different stakeholders, from daily contact with our tenants to contract suppliers and financiers. Our suppliers and partners play a key role in our sustainability efforts. Together, we create the necessary conditions for a sustainable value chain with a sense of responsibility that extends beyond our immediate business activities. We know that we have a fantastic opportunity to influence outcomes through close collaborations and by making clear requirements of those with whom we work.

Our agenda is linked to sub-areas with objectives to enable clear follow-up, implementation of improvements at early stages, and identification of opportunities and challenges. The objectives have been linked to several UN SDGs.

Slättö’s sustainability work is and will continue to be integrated into our daily activities in all our business areas. To ensure this, frameworks and guidelines are adopted and revised by the Company’s board annually. Our investments must be based on well-founded decisions by weighing sustainability criteria and significant sustainability risks in order to ensure long-term value growth.

We’re shaping the future

Slättö is participating in the transformation of Norrtälje Hamn from a former industrial area into a maritime meeting place with a sustainability focus. The Rödalen project, which is part of this development, was launched early in 2021. The project’s overall goal is to minimize environmental and climate impact in the construction phase as well as during the buildings’ entire life cycle.

In this project, environmental and climate impact have been considered in the selection of materials and construction methods. Our choices should promote long-termism, an increase in the use of local resources and enable closed-end cycles. The property is designed in accordance with Sweden Green Building Council’s Silver certification, which in addition to environmental requirements considers social aspects in the form of noise levels, indoor climate in the summer and winter months, and daylight. Renewable energy will be produced locally by installing solar cells on roofs. It will be possible to use energy generated here to charge electric vehicles or partially supply the property with electricity.

Tenants have the possibility of cultivation in both the yard and roof – food doesn’t get more organic or locally grown than this! Residents’ ability to make a positive contribution to sustainable transport with electric vehicle pools has also been considered. Timetables for public transport will be displayed in real time on digital screens to make the neighbourhood more sustainable for the long-term.

Homes being built in Norrtälje Hamn will result in the following:

  • Reduced climate impact through renewable materials and reduced transport compared to conventional construction methods.
  • Locally produced solar energy that supplies rechargeable vehicles with energy
  • Mobility solutions that enable sustainable transport for residents.
  • Cultivation opportunities for residents.
