Slättö’s sustainability report
Sustainability trends will reshape the future of the real estate industry. These trends create entirely new risks and opportunities. The ability to anticipate and lead these changes while generating returns will be crucial to Slättö’s continued success as an investor and fund manager. In our latest sustainability report we share our commitments and actions.
Today, buildings have a big carbon footprint, accounting for 37% of global energy-related CO2 emissions. The industry needs to reduce its footprint fast to align to countries’ net zero goals. Saving energy and switching to renewable sources in buildings have been much talked about. In the future, the business case will be increasingly clear, pushed by regulation, the geopolitical context and energy prices.
On social aspects, housing needs in fast-growing urban areas will continue to rise, and the new housing stock must be affordable and contribute to social equity and integration.
As to governance, demands for transparency and accountability are on the rise. The EU’s new sustainable finance legislation will make it easier for investors to compare and reward asset managers that are leading on sustainability.
Slättö will invest with these trends in mind, as we scan new investment opportunities and manage our portfolio. We will leverage our company culture, based on the values of Commitment, Entrepreneurship, Responsibility and Transparency, to test new innovations and dare to change the way we do business.
Slättö has committed to new sustainability targets for us as a fund manager and for our portfolio. We are now focusing on improving the energy performance of older buildings and investing in construction of new buildings with environmental certification and EU green taxonomy requirements in mind. We cooperate with civil society organizations as a keyway for us to contribute to safe and equitable housing.
