How to achieve the sustainable city

We have achieved a lot in our sustainability work that we are proud of. At the same time, we are humble in the face of all the challenges that remain to reach our high sustainability goals.

We made bold strategic decisions early on that mean we are now at the forefront of our sector. We were the first of all the Swedish property companies to achieve 100 per cent green financing in 2020, and in 2021 we signed the first taxonomy-adapted loan in the Nordic region. We have ambitious goals for 2030, and by continuing to make bold decisions, we are confident we will achieve them.
