The world's foremost sustainability index ranks Castellum as global leader in sustainability - for the fifth consecutive year. "We are extremely happy to be at the top of the podium again. It makes me very proud and I want to thank all employees for a fantastic effort ", says Henrik Saxborn, CEO of Castellum.
This year's edition of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index evaluates and ranks the companies that perform best in the world on sustainability throughout all major industries. Castellum is the only Nordic real estate company and one of only seven Swedish companies that have qualified for the index - and with even higher ratings than last year.
"That we maintain our lead so persistently in this important context is proof that we are doing a really good job," states Filip Elland, head of sustainability at Castellum. "It is a team effort carried out with equal parts commitment, competence and fighting spirit. Now the journey continues towards more challenging goals and with the ambition to remain among the best performers next year as well."
Castellum's main success factor is that sustainability is fully integrated into the business. For example, in 2020 we were one of the first real estate companies in the world to adopt roadmaps with concrete steps to achieve our Science Based Target goal of net-zero carbon dioxide emissions by 2030. We recently started northern Europe's largest rooftop solar cell plant in our Hisingen Logistics Park, we are building the world's first police facility made entirely of wood (aiming to achieve climate neutrality) and this summer we became first in Scandinavia with a WELL-certified office building, the only certification system that takes into account the health and well-being of those who work in a property.
"The Dow Jones Sustainability Index is utilized by institutional and financial investors to make decisions that contribute to a more sustainable real estate industry. Our goal is not to win prizes and medals, but to make the greatest possible effort to both secure long-term sustainable business and to counteract climate change that threatens the entire planet", says Filip Elland.
