Environmentally efficient properties

The key environmental aspects for Catena’s internal environmental efforts are the properties’ energy consumption and its consequential environmental impact. Our environmental management system is certified in accordance with ISO 14001.

Catena has identified five areas where operations have a significant environmental impact: electricity consumption, heat usage, choice of building materials in new construction and remodelling, waste management and reduced transport through efficient logistics locations. Overriding environmental targets and business goals exist for these aspects that are monitored and evaluated on an annual basis. 

Catena has internal managers at regional level and engages external contractors for the practical work on site. Catena’s managers and the external contractors conduct regular meetings with our tenants to discuss items including development projects and environmental initiatives.

A tool for placing focus on and enhancing the environmental performance of buildings is to work with environmental certifications for buildings. Catena is a member of the Sweden Green Building Council network and can offer environmentally-certified buildings under all recognised standards to customers seeking that.
