Stakeholder dialogue and focus areas

To develop and improve operations, Castellum has identified and analyzed stakeholder expectations of our business.

Stakeholder dialogues conducted in 2016 with customers, suppliers, employees, Executive Group Management and the Board of Directors highlight which sustainability issues they considered most important for Castellum. The result is shown in the matrix below.

Our stakeholder dialogues, combined with the company’s own materiality analysis, define the Castellum focus to:

  • The Planet
  • Future-proofing
  • Wellness
  • Society

The Planet

To reduce Castellum’s impact on the environment, resources will be used efficiently, and the proportion of renewable energy is to increase. The target is to decrease energy consumption by at least 3% per sq. m. and year – during 2015, the outcome was -5% compared to 2014. By 2017, energy consumption is to be 50% lower than the sector average and 90% of the energy will come from fossil free energy before 2020. During 2015, 43% and 95% were achieved, respectively.

Future-proofing

It is important for Castellum to be able to offer customers and employees safe and healthy working environments. To achieve this, Castellum works with environmental inventories and recognized environmental classification systems vis-à-vis the properties. The objectives include environmental evaluations for all properties, and environmental classifications for all new constructions and major reconstructions. The updated objectives require classification of office and retail premises as Miljöbyggnad, minimum Silver level. The possibility of reaching the Gold classification should always be investigated.
