Summus Capital firmly believes that the most effective approach to enhancing asset value for investors, tenants and employees is through sustainable business management. Our focus extends beyond acquiring “green assets”; our fundamental mission is to transform existing inefficient buildings into modern, premier and flagship assets. This transformation will lead to a substantial reduction in ecological footprint.
We have developed a long-term sustainability strategy based on Summus Capital real estate portfolio. From this strategy, we have created an action plan with specific goals. One of our objectives, for instance, is to obtain BREEAM or LEED certification for our buildings. Our ultimate mid-term aim is to achieve a certification level of 95%. As of December 2022, 67% of our buildings are already certified, while another 19% are in the process of being certified (Auriga, Veerenni and DEPO buildings).
To enhance energy efficiency, we have conducted energy audits for the majority of our properties in Estonia. These audits have helped us formulate plans for improving energy efficiency for the whole portfolio. We have already begun implementing the plan by making initial investments, such as upgrading our building management systems, replacing lamps and installing solar panels. Consequently, we are already observing a reduction in overall energy consumption.
Furthermore, we prioritize the use of green electricity and have reached a utilization level of 69%. To track our environmental impact, we measure our annual CO2 footprint. Through our planned initiatives, we anticipate a significant reduction in the CO2 footprint of Summus Capital portfolio.
This year marks the first time, when we will conduct customer satisfaction and employee satisfaction surveys, along with customer audit. Additionally, we have successfully completed our initial Gresb audit.
