We want our tenants to be able to focus on the business instead of the premises and creating fossil-free energy is part of that. That's why Ytterbygg is an environmentally certified workplace and we strive to reduce our and our customers' environmental impact. We are members of the Green Building Council and have several Green Building certified houses.
In order to succeed with our high environmental ambition, we have set three environmental goals:
Environmental Objective 1 - Energy Conservation
By reducing the energy consumption in our properties, we greatly reduce our environmental impact. We do this, among other things, by building well-insulated houses and through energy-efficient real estate operations. In our two own wind turbines, we produce a total of 12 million kWh, which is about the same as both we and our tenants spent in a year. Through our own solar cells, we produce an additional 11,000 kWh per year.
Environmental Objective 2 – reducing fossil emissions
ECO-driving, travel planning and a gradual transition to more environmentally friendly fuels help us reduce our environmental impact due to fossil emissions.
Environmental Objective 3 - sorting waste
More efficient waste sorting in recycling farms in our areas leads to an increase in both our own and our tenants' recycling. At the same time, we are reducing the proportion of waste that is mixed and burned, which leads to better management of our common resources.
