Environmental and Lifecycle Affairs
Social responsibility is the foundation of Senate Properties’ business activities. Sustainable development objectives and environmentally-responsible methods are part and parcel of our everyday operations in both property development and property maintenance.
Environmental affairs are managed in accordance with the ISO 14001:2004 standard by means of a carefully prepared and certified environmental system. The main objectives of the environmental system are to reduce the energy consumption of current property assets, to improve the environmental characteristics of new construction and comprehensive renovation projects, and to develop waste management systems.
When executing new construction and comprehensive renovation projects, Senate Properties uses its own ecological building method.
In order to reduce the environmental impact during property maintenance, Senate Properties has co-operated more closely with service providers and introduced new environmentally-responsible methods. Attempts have been made to influence customers’ consumption habits and methods by interactive dialogue and information activities and by supporting customers’ own environmental work.
Senate Properties regularly reports on its environmental affairs in its Annual Report, for example, and published its first Social Responsibility Report in 2002. Since 2004, a combined Annual Report and Social Responsibility Report has been published. The report has been compiled in accordance with the recommendations of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and has comprehensively reported on the environmental, social and economic effects of Senate Properties’ business activities. The reports are available as PDF files and can be ordered from Katri Tulander, Information, Senate Properties.
