Sustainability Strategy

office space, sustainability DNA

Sustainability is incorporated into Technopolis corporate strategy and DNA – in a nutshell, our strategy is to create sustainable competitive advantage by selling less space per person but more efficiency, flexibility and services to customers.

In 2016, we updated our strategic sustainability approach, the main tool steering our sustainability efforts. The renewal aimed to focus our efforts on those items that are most relevant to us and to convey the message in a framework that is easy to grasp for internal and external stakeholders, to better steer and motivate actions.

The strategic approach was updated with an eye for the long-term perspective, the megatrends in our sector and the customer approach that is at the heart of our operations. We sustain our ability to prosper over the long term by adapting to relevant social and environmental demands and the requirements of the community.

Driven by changes in work and growing demands from stakeholders, we cooperate with our customers and partners to find meaningful measures to support their success, workspace well-being, and productivity.

For us, sustainability is a day-to-day activity that is reflected in eco-efficient premises, motivated employees, services that support success, and a sense of community. With this approach, we aim to enhance our own and our customers’ competitive advantage through sustainability.
