Our social impact

Social impact is at the heart of our business model. Our investments and decisions shape infrastructure and create space for communities to thrive.

The social aspects of our business

  • With a building portfolio that includes care homes, senior housing, office buildings, shopping centers and leisure, we contribute to the social infrastructure in the Nordics and in the Baltics and we create space for local communities to thrive.

  • In the Nordic region, a rapidly ageing population has increased the need for aged care facilities. Since 2007, our four healthcare funds have contributed to helping solve a societal challenge by providing good quality living conditions for seniors. We are supporting health organizations and in interviews and in relevant forums, we are actively debating societal solutions to ensure elderly welfare and dignified elderly care in the future.

  • Our properties accommodate people who live, work, and spend time in the buildings. As a result, our investment decisions and decisions on building improvements and amenities, have a significant and direct impact on the health and well-being of many people.

Our healthcare funds contribute positively in the social characteristics space by providing modern, purpose built care homes to enhance the wellbeing of senior citizens in a rapidly aging population in the Nordics

Examples of shareholder engagement

Tenant dialogue

As an asset owner, it is crucial for us to have an ongoing dialogue with our tenants to understand how we can contribute to their success through improvements to our buildings, community events, reconstructions, and so forth.

Across asset classes, asset managers and property managers are in direct contact with tenants and work together to improve assets and respond to all issues immediately.

We conduct tenant satisfaction surveys at least annually and plan improvements accordingly.

Investor communication

Our funds have different legal structures. In each fund, in addition to the specific reporting and disclosure requirements, it is key for us to maintain a continuous communication with our investors to ensure that they are well informed about investments made, the financial and ESG performance of the fund and events that might impact the fund's activities.
