Our sustainability work
For us at Wallenstam, environmental and social responsibility is about developing and working responsibly based on environmental, social and business aspects. Our sustainability work is based on a Group-wide strategy and four climate goals that guide us in our daily work.
As a part of our sustainability work we have decided on four climate targets as follows:
- Wallenstam shall reduce CO2 emissions from its building operations by 10 percent per square meter.
- Wallenstam shall reduce CO2 emissions from the properties’ energy consumption by 15 percent per heated square meter.
- Wallenstam shall reduce the properties’ residual waste by 10 percent per square meter.
- Wallenstam’s business trips shall be carried out using electric car, train or via completely carbon-neutral and biofuel-based air travel.
The goals within the UN’s Agenda 2030 that Wallenstam has already chosen to focus on are gender equality, affordable and clean energy, decent work and economic growth, sustainable cities and communities and climate action.
We support UN Global Compact
Wallenstam has signed the UN Global Compact, which means that we support and work on the basis of ten principles relating to human rights, labor, a precautionary approach, anti-corruption, and taking responsibility in relation to environmental issues.

Wallenstam strives for sustainability for individuals and companies. We work proactively with action plans to reduce our environmental impact. We invest in reducing our energy consumption and we are self-sufficient in green electricity produced in-house.
