Sustainability

We want our tenants to be able to focus on the business rather than the space, and creating fossil-free energy is part of that.

Ytterbygg is an environmentally certified workplace and we strive to reduce our and our customers' environmental impact. We are environmentally certified and have several Green Building certified buildings.

To achieve our high environmental ambition, we have set three environmental targets:

Environmental objective 1 - energy conservation
By reducing the energy consumption of our buildings, we are significantly reducing our environmental impact. We do this by building well-insulated buildings and through energy-efficient property management. Our two own wind turbines produce a total of 12 million kWh, which is about as much as both we and our tenants use in a year. Through our own solar cells, we produce an additional 11,000 kWh per year.
Environmental objective 2 - reduce fossil emissions
ECO-driving, trip planning and switching to fossil-free diesel, HVO100, help us reduce our environmental impact due to fossil emissions.
Environmental objective 3 - sort waste
More efficient waste sorting in recycling yards in our areas will lead to an increase in both our own and our tenants' recycling. At the same time, we are reducing the amount of waste that is mixed and burned, which leads to better management of our common resources.
