The work of sustainability

With the aim of creating sustainable conditions for our tenants, employees and society at large, we conduct our work on sustainability issues in a systematic and preventive manner.

Sustainability - a factor for success

Sustainability is a key success factor for us at Fabege and an important part of our business. We are working actively together with our customers, contributing to sustainable development.

Integrated in the daily work

Our sustainability work is long-term, goal-oriented and integrated in daily work.

Head of Sustainability, who reports to the Group management, is responsible for strategic sustainability work and each department is independently responsible for their specific sustainability goals.

Analysis, goals, control and monitoring

The starting point for sustainability work is the company's materiality analysis, sustainability, policy and code of conduct. The company also gathers inspections and controls in a database for self-monitoring. Follow-up is important, and made ​​quarterly and annually based on assign goals.

Stakeholder dialogue

Fabege’s principal stakeholders are customers, employees, creditors, shareholders and analysts, suppliers and the other parts of society in which the company operates. The company enjoys a continuous dialogue with all stakeholder groups, and in 2017 a more in-depth dialogue with customers, creditors and employees was conducted. This was done in the form of a survey, which aimed to compile information to assess Fabege’s material sustainability aspects.

Material issues

In spring 2015, Fabege carried out a materiality analysis in which some fifty representatives of the company’s key stakeholder groups were asked to participate in an anonymous survey about Fabege’s sustainability work. The principal stakeholder groups were defined as customers, employees, creditors, shareholders and analysts, suppliers and the other parts of society in which the company operates. The purpose of the survey was to develop the company’s sustainability work and improve the relevance of sustainability reporting.

In 2017 we continued to work on the basis of the materiality analysis performed in 2015, and we have not identified any need for changes. The stakeholder dialogues, combined with internal analyses, have resulted in an updated materiality analysis that defines the issues where Fabege has the greatest impact and potential to influence. The results of the analysis show that the following areas are the most significant for Fabege:

Health and wellbeing

  • Health and safety
  • Skills development
  • Employment terms and human rights


Climate issues

  • Energy efficiency enhancements
  • Choice of materials and safe products
  • Environmental risks and soil remediation
  • Emissions and waste management
