Technopolis’ ESG Report 2023: Year of great results and smart development

Technopolis has published its 2023 ESG Report, which presents the company's sustainability achievements and goals, including energy efficiency, carbon footprint reduction, customer satisfaction and employee wellbeing.

Technopolis is committed to making future workplaces sustainable, focusing on energy efficiency, optimal space utilization, supporting wellbeing and transparent reporting. The latest sustainability report highlights the 2023 advancements from the perspective of environmental, social impacts, and good governance.

"As expectations for sustainability continue to rise, alongside tightening regulations, I am proud that in 2023 we once again made significant progress in our sustainability efforts. As a strategic partner to businesses, the foundation for our sustainability is to enable our customers to be sustainable. The high satisfaction and positive feedback from our customers and stakeholders affirm the success of our approach,” Niko Pulli, CEO of Technopolis, states.

One of the highlights of the year for Technopolis was receiving the Energy Genius of the Year 2023 recognition for piloting a smart control system that improves energy efficiency. Additionally, Technopolis is continuously putting more effort into the systematic monitoring and analysis of energy efficiency. The company actively addresses deviations and is also involved in developing more effective tools for analysis.

“Throughout the year, we renewed the majority of our energy performance certificates, and based on those results, we are making plans for future measures. We are also pleased to announce that our carbon emissions from energy use have decreased by almost 90% compared to 2016,” tells Johanna Kivelä, Sustainability Manager at Technopolis.

Technopolis aims for carbon-neutral energy use in all buildings by 2030

In the fight against climate change, Technopolis has established ambitious targets: committing to reduce operational carbon emissions within its portfolio by 2030 and advocating for all buildings to achieve net-zero whole-life carbon status by 2050.

Technopolis is striving for carbon neutrality primarily through emissions reductions, for example, by optimizing energy consumption, utilizing the campuses’ own renewable energy production and procuring energy from carbon-neutral sources.

“Carbon-neutral use of energy in Technopolis’ properties is advancing well ahead of schedule. So far, we have managed to reduce our carbon footprint purely through measures related to energy use and procurement, without any compensation,” states Kivelä.

At Technopolis, sustainability work entails continuous improvement and setting increasingly ambitious sustainability targets.

"In 2023, our sustainability efforts particularly focused on energy efficiency and increasing the share of carbon-neutral energy. By the end of 2023, eight of Technopolis' campuses had already achieved full carbon neutrality in all energy consumption procured by the company. In total, 89% of our procured energy came from carbon-neutral sources," Kivelä continues.

The full Sustainability Report is available on Technopolis’ website. The report has been drafted with partial reference to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) reporting guidelines as well as the European Public Real Estate Association (EPRA) Sustainability Best Practices Recommendations (sBPR).
