Our environmental statement

A wide range of instruments have been and are being used. We carry out competence enhancement of tenants and their own operating personnel, do energy analyzes, invest in the buildings and upgrade them with new, modern technical installations. In addition, we carry out ongoing reporting and monitoring of energy and water consumption in the buildings.

In 2006, we worked out what remains a living internal framework - “Energy policy and directive”, and “Environmental policy an directive” for our environmental work. The framework includes both our development projects and the operation of our own buildings.

We have developed very specific requirements for both our own behavior and the buildings, to ensure that we always have a property portfolio with the best environmental profile, and at all times environmentally conscious employees.

Development projects

  1. Our project managers in all development projects must have an environmentally responsible role.
  2. The environmental quality of new buildings is to be safeguarded with high quality architecture and technical installations.
  3. Renewable energy must be used wherever practicable.
  4. All new buildings must be classified as a minimum according to BREEAM-NOR “Very Good”, and / or energy label B or equivalent.
  5. In addition, profitability must be assessed by lifting to a higher BREEAM class.

Existing buildings

  1. Environment and energy
  2. Preparation of environmental plan with measures for improvement.
  3. Where investments can be made to achieve greater environmental benefits, our tenants will be invited to participate.

Our environmental challenge

Of course, we are not able to realize our environmental ambitions alone. We need the help of all our partners to succeed. Therefore, we have some clear environmental challenges and challenges for our chosen partners.

Our environmental results

Redigert Radisson Blu Hotel Elizabete 01

Hotels

In three years we managed to reduce the total energy consumption of 10 hotels in the Baltic and Russia by 8 million kWh. A result corresponding to approx. 8 million turns with the washing machine. Water consumption was reduced by 2 million liters from 2012 to 2013, which corresponds to 12,500 filled baths. Energy consumption at five of the hotels was reduced by as much as 39 per cent. accommodation.

We implement the measures in two phases. The first phase is about making various measurements, raising awareness of personnel and active guidance. In phase two, we invest in control systems, technical equipment and sealing / insulation. The investment is repaid through lower energy consumption and simpler operation.
