Sustainability reporting

We have revised our sustainability reporting with the aim of communicating the results of our sustainability efforts to our stakeholders even more transparently than before. Our report on the year 2019 marks the first time that we have applied the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework and the European Public Real Estate Association’s Sustainability Best Practices Recommendations (EPRA sBPR, 3rd edition).

Kojamo’s sustainability reporting has been published as part of the Annual Report 2019. Kojamo has also published a separate EPRA sBPR Supplement 2019.

Materiality analysis

We conducted a materiality analysis of sustainability in May–June 2020 as part of the development of our sustainability programme. The materiality analysis helps us ensure that our sustainability efforts are focused on the sustainability themes that are the most material with regard to our strategy, business operations and stakeholders.

In the materiality analysis, we identified Kojamo’s material sustainability aspects and analysed them based on industry analyses, background analyses, key stakeholder views and an assessment of business impacts as well as impacts on society. The materiality analysis was conducted in accordance with the requirements of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards and the EPRA (European Public Real Estate Association) sustainability best practices recommendations. In accordance with the GRI standards, the materiality of the sustainability aspects was assessed based on the extent of the Group’s impact on the economy, environment and society as well as the significance of each aspect to the Group’s stakeholders.

The key aspects of sustainability defined as part of the materiality analysis were grouped under four main themes: Sustainable urban development, delivering the best customer experience, the most competent personnel and a dynamic place to work, and a responsible corporate citizen.

The results of the materiality analysis provide the foundation for our sustainability programme, which will be published during 2020.
