We monitor consumption figures on energy, electricity, water and waste and seek for opportunities to improve efficiency. This is mainly conducted by the managers, who monitor the figures through their IT-systems and seek opportunities to reduce these impacts as well as provide information for us related to these issues. Specific projects aiming at reducing environmental impacts (e.g. waste management improvements, air ventilation units, lighting, building automation systems, window sealings etc.) are discussed in cooperation with managers. 2019 we changed to carbon neutral electricity in our directly owned buildings.
We conduct tenant satisfaction surveys with our partners on yearly basis and go through the results as well as tenants' suggestions for improvements with property managers and decide on arrangements based on the results. We require careful selection of service providers on property maintenance and projects in order to assure that all regulations and legislation is met and sites are safe and environmental issues are covered.
With one of our main management partner we have established a cooperation group consisting of Elo's and managers' key personnel in order to develop implementation of energy and environmental issues.
