Being among the forerunners of sustainable shopping centre management is a strategic goal of Citycon. Sustainability is an embedded contributor to added-value for operations, financial performance, and all our stakeholders. Citycon’s strategy is to create value for its stakeholders through developing and offering the right assets and retail expertise supported by a strong capital base. In order to achieve this, we must develop and manage shopping centres that are resilient towards megatrends, changing the areas where we operate. Our sustainability strategy and strategic sustainability actions for the upcoming years, work as a guideline for all Citycon employees working with these issues.
Sustainability, and our material aspects, are integrated into the overall strategy and operations of the company, and we are advancing our ambition to make sustainable thinking and action natural trademarks of our company culture. The different aspects of sustainability – environmental, social, and economic – have been integrated with the company’s operations. Business operations are supported by Group functions such as sustainability, legal and HR management activities.
Citycon’s operations have an impact on many stakeholders, such as tenants, personnel, partners, and authorities. Regular interaction and reporting increase transparency and facilitate the achievement of objectives.
