ESG report 2022: Various targets reached

Our ESG report 2022 provides an overview of our key ESG figures on environmental, social and governance issues. But we also breathe life into our work with sustainability with a series of cases and descriptions of the dedicated work that our many skilled employees perform daily.

These highlights from 2022 illustrate the work we do with the environment, social initiatives and good management:

  • 12.4% square meters certified. The amount of certified square meters we manage for investors jumped from 7,3% to 12,4%, surpassing our goal earlyof having at least 10% of our portfolio certified by an internationally recognised scheme by 2025.

  • Energy label C. We succeeded in achieving a weighted energy label average of at least C by working strategically with energy labels as benchmarks for investments in energy optimisation.

  • Satisfied employees. Our employees across the Nordics gave us an overall employee net promoter score (E-NPS) of 14, which i four points higher than our target of 10. E-NPS indicates whether an employee would recommend DEAS Group as a workplace. Our ability to attract, retain and develop talented employees determines our company's success and we are proud of this result.

  • Good management figures. Our key figures in 2022 show that we are good at manageing our policies, procedures and workflows, which is crucial to our stakeholders. No reportes were submitted to the DEAS whistleblower scheme and DEAS reported zero violations concerning corruption and money laundering. Only one of the ten GDRP cases filed was serious.

2023 will be a baseline year

Our ESG strategy and other initiatives contribute to the following five United Nations Sustainable Development Goals selected based on a strategic process in 2019: Goal 3: Good Health and Well-Being; Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth; Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities; Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production; and Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals.

In 2023 a steering group comprising the management and relevant professionals will set new goals and guidelines for our work with sustainability. The steering group will develop a new direction by reviewing and updating our ESG strategy, including defining new targets and key figures per the EU Taxonomy, the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation, the EU Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive and updated building regulations.

Vision and pledge

DEAS Group's vision is to ensure that the properties we are responsible for support the lifestyle of our tenants to a greater extent and do not simply form the framework for their daily lives. Our pledge to improve the way we live is an integral part of our strategy which is based on stakeholder management, social impact and innovation. By focusing on these three areas, we want to ensure a positive impact on society, the environment and the economy.
