Effective energy use and operational optimisation are nothing new in the property industry. During the winter 2022-2023 the efforts to reduce energy consumption was particularly relevant and we initiated a campaign to reduce energy usage together with the Swedish property companies Castellum, Catena, Corem, Mileway, Logicenters and SLP. The campaign became well-known  under the hashtag #HusFörHus (houses for houses).

The purpuse of the campaign is to contribute to reduce energy use by collaborating, sharing knowledge, and inspiring as many as possible to do what they can to save energy.

A lot of square meters means great opportunities 

In close dialogue with tenants, Catena proposes measures that may have an impact on energy consumption in the property portfolio. This could, for example, be about adjusting the heat or reviewing ventilation and flows, for example turning off or reducing the flows in the evenings and nights if no business is running.
