Caverion and Veho have achieved significant results in improving Veho's real estates’ energy efficiency. In 2016, the total energy savings achieved by energy efficiency improvement, real estate utilisation optimisation, 24/7 real estate control, and energy management were around 3,750 MWh, which means a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by about 830 tonnes.
