Value-adding certifications

BREEAM is an international system with certification being made by an external party. Also, BREEAM takes into consideration conditions outside the building, which we see as an advantage. We always take responsibility beyond the property boundary, and then we want to know that even these efforts are done in a climate-smart way.

We environmentally certify all investment properties according to BREEAM In-Use with the ambition of achieving Very Good, and new construction projects according to BREEAM-SE with the goal of achieving Excellent.

There are many reasons to certify our buildings:

  • Our tenants can feel secure in their choice of workplace
  • The value of the properties increases
  • Loans become less expensive as more investors seek sustainable investments

Conscious customers want certified offices

With the current focus on reducing global warming and the willingness to help achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals, more and more customers think that an environmentally certified workplace is a hygiene factor. Being an environmentally conscious and proactive employer is becoming increasingly important in terms of employer branding, and we welcome this development.

Our environmental certifications for quality assurance


BREEAM is an environmental certification system from the UK that has existed since 1990. It is the most widespread system for environmental certification in Europe, having been used in over 500,000 buildings all over the world. The system encompasses project management, the building’s energy use, indoor climate conditions, water consumption and waste management, as well as land use and the building’s impact on the surrounding area. BREEAM-SE has been developed to allow new-builds to be certified according to Swedish regulations, while BREEAM In-Use is used for existing buildings. Since 2013 Sweden Green Building Council (SGBC) has managed the Swedish version, BREEAM-SE.
