Sustainability — with solicitude for people and the environment
We create attractive and sustainable urban environments and properties where people want to live, work and be for many years to come. This is why we take a long-term, responsible approach when we own, build, develop and manage properties and urban districts.
The issue of sustainable urban development has become more topical as urbanisation and population in metropolitan areas have grown. Awareness that the earth’s resources are limited and that humans impact the climate has increased. The construction and property sector accounts for roughly one third of Sweden’s energy consumption, and it has a large impact on the climate. There are also risks in our industry associated with health and safety, corruption and violations of human rights. It is therefore important for us to take care of people and the environment in all of our operations.
Atrium Ljungberg is active during the entire lifecycle of a building: as a developer of new properties, a buyer of construction materials and services, a developer and contractor, a property manager and a leasing manager for properties, but also at the final stage of a building when it is going to be demolished. We place demands on our suppliers and work with our tenants to achieve more than we could individually. By doing this we are trying to guide the entire value chain in a sustainable direction.
Most charging points in Sweden
One step in Atrium Ljungberg’s efforts to develop sustainable urban environments is our major investment in charging points for electric cars and plug-in hybrids. In 2018 we were actually the biggest investor in Sweden, installing more than 700 charging points in places such as Kista and Hagastaden. The goal is to have 1,000 charging points in our property portfolio in 2019.
