Upgrading of energy efficiency: The energy efficiency of 79 residential units have been upgraded. The energy labels of these units were raised from label E/F to a C/B/A-label and yearly energy bills have been decreased with an average amount of € 525,- per unit. The upgrading also resulted in savings of 122.800 kilograms of CO2.
Asbestos inventory and removal program: All residential units in which potentially asbestos is used during the construction or refurbishment (all units build or refurbished before 1994) are checked following standard procedures. For those units where asbestos was found which had a potential direct health risk a removal was executed. For all units with asbestos with no direct health risk removal is programmed according the regular maintenance program.
Property managers are instructed how to handle when asbestos is found in properties and tenants are also informed about asbestos and when there is a health risk. All third parties as valuers and local managers are regularly screened and audited (ISAE 3402 II)
Tenants are pointed at energy efficiency possibilities; we have a BREEAM certificate for a property. Also we are participating in GRESB.
