We are responsible for providing our customers with appropriate and healthy operating premises.
Cooperation with partners
We are a small expert organisation whose operations are based on reliable partnerships. Our partner network consists of hundreds of partners, the most significant of which include universities, construction companies, property maintenance companies, consulting companies, funding providers, expert organisations and in property leasing.
Before starting new projects we ensure that our new partners operate responsibly. The assessment emphasises economic and environmental responsibility. We ensure that our partners pay their taxes and employer contributions and that they do not cause environmental risks.
We expanded our partner network to new business areas in 2016, such as turnkey rental solutions. We also deepened our cooperation with our existing partners.
We develop our industry by making significant investments in research, development and innovation activities that help take the property and construction industry forward. We also promote a culture of experimentation through demo project programmes implemented in partnership with universities each year.
Reporting on responsibility
We have strengthened the principles of sustainable development in our operations since 2011, practically throughout our company’s existence. We have developed systematic responsibility reporting since 2013.
The aim of our reporting is to promote the openness and transparency of our operations, to provide increased opportunities for comparisons within the industry and to enable appropriate monitoring of the aspects that are reported on. A further goal is to identify aspects of our operations that our stakeholders have a special interest in, through which we can strengthen our positive impacts on the surrounding society, economy and environment.
We also carry out comparisons with corresponding reports by other operators in the property sector and interact with them to jointly develop responsibility within the industry.
We also participate in the discussion on responsibility in our industry together with our stakeholders. We are also interested in new reporting models. In 2017, we intend to familiarise ourselves with, for example, the Finnish corporate responsibility reporting recommendations developed jointly by KTI Property Information, the Finnish Association of Building Owners and Construction Clients (RAKLI). In future, we intend to participate in the activities of the FIBS corporate responsibility network with the aim of obtaining the latest information on developing responsibility in business operations.
