The Amaron Team wants to contribute to a more sustainable world. Not primarily in order to comply with the extensive regulations that our business activities are exposed to, but to make a real contribution for the greater good. By integrating environmental and social aspects into our daily business decisions, we strive to leave behind us as small climate footprints as possible. Contributing to a sustainable world and a favourable return to our investors goes hand in hand at Amaron.

The world’s population is increasing and thus also the need for properties that people can live and work in. Today, the real estate industry is considered as one of the segments with the greatest negative environmental impacts. This means that every activity we perform to promote a more sustainable environment will have a significant positive long-term impact.

Therefore, before each property acquisition as well as annually, we create a business plan for each property that contains a concrete action plan that include ESG-measures.

Such measures may include:

  • changing regular electricity contracts into green electricity contracts
  • additional insulations that contribute to reduced energy consumption
  • recycling of materials and selection of climate-smart materials during renovations
  • installation of solar panels, rapid rolling doors or airlocks
  • installing charging stations for the tenants’ electric cars

It is our firm belief that an environmentally smart property portfolio will generate good annual returns to our investors and that it also will generate a higher sales price the day the portfolio will be divested.
