Environmental property certification

Alma Property Partners have an ambition to obtain an environmental certification of our properties, where economically sustainable. At present the office buildings Keilaranta 4, 6 and 8 in Espoo are certified according to BREEAM In-use to the level of Excellent. Our Häggvik necessity retail asset in greater Stockholm is certified according to BREEAM In-use to the level of Excellent. We have also certified our residential project Lyskær in greater Copenhagen with DGNB-gold and two other residential projects in Denmark will be certified with DGNB-gold upon completion.

Managing our environmental footprint

Electricity, heating, cooling and water consumption are measured at each property. We are taking measures to reduce our energy consumption and environmental impact during our ownership and assist tenants to do the same.

Alma Property Partners is actively looking to install solar panels on new construction projects and renovations. At present, solar panels have been installed in our retail projects in Laholm and Åmål with several new installments in the planning phase.

Where it is deemed to support the business plan or the tenants, electrical vehicle charging stations will be installed. For instance, in investments relating to retail and fast-food restaurants.
