GTEBORG, Sweden, December 8, 2021 / PRNewswire / – “Success continues for Castellum’s sustainability efforts. This time we received the highest rating of all Nordic real estate companies in the CDP Annual Sustainability Assessment.
After ten years of determined work on sustainable development, we are also at the top in this important context. This is a strong signal to the entire global real estate market: if we can do it, so can you, “says Philippe Elland, responsible for sustainable development at Castellum.
The CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) is an international organization aimed at empowering companies and countries with regard to their environmental impact, with a focus on climate change. CDP’s compilations are the world’s largest benchmark for corporate climate work and a decision basis to guide investors towards more sustainable investments and businesses. Since 2010, Castellum has been reporting annually to CDP and receiving A- or B grades (the scale goes from D to A). For the second year in a row, we’ve achieved grade A, which means we’ve reached the highest level in CDP, usually reserved for a handful of companies.
The assessment now published by CDP covers more than 13,000 companies in various industries around the world. More than 500 investors use CDP data with information on environmental impact, risks and opportunities.
“We’re a member of a pretty exclusive club that includes a handful of real estate companies across the world. But more importantly is showing how small and large businesses can make a tangible difference in the most important challenge of our time. “, said Philippe Elland.
Castellum’s position on the CDP A list is the third major achievement in a short time for our intensive sustainability work. On November 13, Castellum obtained the best marks in the S&P Corporate Sustainability Assessment (S&P CSA) for the sixth consecutive year, and on October 15, the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) named Castellum a world leader in sustainable development in the office / industry category for the sixth consecutive year.
