Opportunity to impact the environment
Citycon has the opportunity to impact the environment in a positive way through the management and development of its shopping centres. By 2030 we will have no direct carbon emissions from our own buildings and all our purchased energy will be carbon neutral.
The best ways of cutting greenhouse gas emissions in the sector are to improve the energy efficiency of buildings, to reduce energy consumption and to increase the use of renewable energy sources in the properties’ energy production and procurement.
