Responsible operations

One of our strategic objectives is to be a frontrunner in sustainable development and corporate responsibility. We want to have an impact on other actors as well, so that together we can create better urban living. We strive for success in achieving this goal.

We are guided by our values and the operating principles: Corporate Governance, Ethical Principles, Personnel and Data Security Policy, Procurement Principles and Fair Rental Practice. Our own anti-grey economy operating models exceed legislative requirements in many respects.

We have set specific targets for our corporate responsibility work. You can find them here.

Better urban housing is built on responsibility and sustainable business

We want to create a high-quality, sustainable, healthy and comfortable living environment for all city residents. Our mission is to develop better urban housing. Increasing the supply of rental apartments in the growth centres supports the vitality and commercial attractiveness of cities and hence the well-being of the entire society.

We carry out effective and significant actions with which we have, for example, improved the efficiency of our relative electricity, heat and water use of our real estate and enhanced our customer experience. With the AI-based Leanheat system, we improve energy efficiency by controlling the temperature of nearly 29,000 apartments. The solution improves comfort of living while reducing the carbon footprint of buildings.

Environmental agreements and flagship initiatives

We are a member of the Finnish non-profit organisation Climate Leadership Coalition (CLC) and are committed to the Rental Property Action Plan (VAETS II), in which the target is energy savings of 7.5 per cent between 2017–2025.

Since 2017, Kojamo’s own new construction projects have consisted of nearly zero-energy buildings in line with the FInZEB concepts and guidelines. In Kalasatama, Helsinki we collaborate on building a first-of-its-kind SunZEB block that will take quality and energy efficiency to the level of future standards.

Our headquarters and four other offices are WWF Green Office certified. The aim of the Green Office scheme is to help offices reduce their environmental load, to increase employees’ environmental awareness and to achieve energy savings.
