Implenia AG / Key word(s): Sustainability/ESG
New 2022 Sustainability Report published in accordance with Global Reporting Initiative guidelines | CO2 footprint further reduced | Demand for expertise in development, planning and execution | Safe, modern working environment for employees
Glattpark (Opfikon), April 27, 2023 – The new Sustainability Report, which has been compiled in line with Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards, makes it clear that Implenia is the industry leader in sustainability. The company is well on track to achieve all twelve of the ambitious sustainability goals it set itself for 2025.
CO2 footprint further reduced
In 2022, Implenia also analysed its entire portfolio of over 40 development projects in Switzerland and calculated its CO2 footprint. The analysis was carried out on the basis of the SIA energy efficiency path. Significant improvements have been introduced to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The results of this portfolio analysis allow Implenia to identify its key levers for decarbonisation and pursue an ambitious decarbonisation strategy.
Implenia generates its own solar power through photovoltaic systems on the roofs of its factory yards and production plants. In 2022, it generated more than 1.3 gigawatt hours of green electricity, an increase of more than 20 percent on the previous year.
“In line with our values, our ambition as industry leader is to help shape the transition towards a more sustainable sector,” says CEO André Wyss. “Our experts’ skills in sustainable real estate and infrastructure are increasingly in demand from customers, sometimes as a stand-alone service.”
Safe, modern working environment for employees
The relevant ESG ratings from Sustainalytics (Industry Top Rated) and MSCI (AAA) confirm the Group’s prime position as an industry leader in sustainability. EcoVadis awarded Implenia Gold status in 2022. The Real Estate Products Business Unit received the “Advanced” Circular Globe Label in 2022 – a first for the real estate industry.
