Sustainable urban development
We are, and will continue to be, a responsible corporate citizen that complies with laws and regulations and always does the right thing. Creating Sweden’s most inspiring cities and most attractive places is our way of making city life better for everybody.
We help our tenants make sustainable choices, we endeavour to minimise our fossil-based emissions, we optimise our energy consumption, we environmentally certify our properties continuously, we reduce our and our tenants’ use of water, we promote diversity/equality and we actively engage in societal issues that contribute to urban development. We abide by our Code of Conduct, which is based on the UN Global Compact, and means that we support the global sustainable development goals and we are a natural partner in efforts to achieve them. Actively working to reduce our carbon dioxide emissions contributes to the future sustainability of our company, and we have set a target to reach net-zero emissions by no later than 2045. We are therefore targeting fossil-free property management and climate-neutral construction by no later than 2030.
Internally at Diös we have a sustainability council whose purpose is to discuss and evaluate Diös' sustainability work from different perspectives in order to ensure the right path forward. The council includes a representative from the management team, the sustainability manager and a number of people responsible for matters including development issues, construction projects and investor relations.
Our sustainability strategy is built on four focus areas - sustainable management, sustainable urban development, being an attractive employer and corporate responsibility. Our strategy has been developed based on the materiality assessment that was carried out in 2016, as well as continuous dialogue with our stakeholders.
