Antilooppi publishes its 2022 Sustainability Report: Significant steps towards carbon neutrality
Antilooppi, a real-estate investment firm in the Helsinki region, has published its 2022 Sustainability Report. Last year, the company took significant steps forward in its sustainability efforts, notwithstanding the challenging societal climate. Sustainability has always been an essential part of Antilooppi’s business, and tangible actions aimed at carbon neutrality particularly drove last year’s positive trend.
“At Antilooppi, sustainability has always been at the heart of our business and is one of the company values. We develop our existing real-estate portfolio and the adjacent areas sustainably with our clients’ views in mind. For us, 2022 was a significant year of sustainability, filled with concrete actions. We also took many tangible sustainability steps. We commissioned four new solar power plants, and eight of our properties made their energy consumption totally carbon neutral. Our entire portfolio switched to renewable wind electricity. In addition, we were one of the first to make extensive energy-saving measures a part of the national energy-saving campaign,” Hannamari Koivula, Head of Sustainability and Property Management at Antilooppi, says.
These actions reduced the company’s carbon dioxide emissions by 40% on the previous year. Antilooppi aims to achieve a completely carbon-neutral real-estate portfolio by 2030, both in terms of energy consumption and construction, in line with its Net Zero Carbon Buildings commitment. The next milestone is reducing emissions by 75% by 2025.
New sustainable workspace category, Finland’s first carbon-neutral office network, and Platinum-level sustainability
The focal points of Antilooppi’s sustainability strategy are carbon neutrality and human wellbeing. The company supports its customers’ success and wellbeing by providing creative, flexible and sustainable office solutions.
In 2022, Antilooppi brought a completely new office concept to market: Always Ready, which offers turnkey-condition, high-quality and completely sustainable workspaces. The sought-after POOL, a flexible space solution, continued to grow, expanding to the company’s properties in Tallbergintalo, Merikortteli, Siltasaari 10 and Stella Business Park. Antilooppi has recently launched POOL as a completely carbon-neutral concept, making it Finland’s first carbon-neutral workspace network.
“We want to create pleasant places to work that correspond to today’s professional needs and our customers’ changing expectations. That allows us to generate added value for our customers and support them in achieving their sustainability goals. When we work on our sustainability, we also take advantage of the internationally respected LEED and BREEAM environmental certificates. We’re progressing rapidly towards our goal of certifying our entire portfolio during 2023,” Antilooppi CEO Tuomas Sahi says.
In 2022, the certification level rose to 55% as eleven Antilooppi properties were awarded a BREEAM In-Use certificate. The Siltasaari 10 property achieved a LEED v4 Platinum certificate, scoring the highest points in Finland. In the near future, Siltasaari 10 is also expected to receive an exclusive WELL certificate, which testifies to the property’s value for users’ health, wellbeing and comfort.
Sustainability efforts continue on firm ground with customers
The Sustainability Report also explains the management, employee responsibility, stakeholder cooperation, key figures and goals of sustainability at Antilooppi. The company intends to accelerate its green transition in line with its carbon-neutrality road map by investing in its properties’ energy efficiency and generation of proprietary renewable energy. The EU taxonomy also guides sustainability efforts, and Antilooppi starts reporting on its portfolio’s conformity to the taxonomy from this year on.
“Our goals are ambitious, and there’s still lots to do in future. We hope that our actions allow us to promote a more sustainable property business and speed up our journey towards a lower-carbon, sustainable real-estate sector more widely. We want our offices to support our customers’ wellbeing and productive work with consideration for crucial climate targets. In addition to environmental sustainability, this year we’re focusing strongly on our other sustainability focal point, wellbeing. We’re progressing systematically towards our goals, aided by tangible sustainability actions,” Koivula says.
“We’ve found a model in which sustainability serves us well as a catalyst towards an even better business, regardless of the changes in the world around us. We’re thinking actively about what more we could do to make our business more sustainable. In future, we intend to develop our sustainability efforts in even closer cooperation with our customers and partners,” Sahi concludes.
