Operating environment


Climate change is a more actual topic than ever. The 
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report 
demands limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees. There is a lot 
the built environment sector can do to mitigate climate change.

~30% of the human carbon footprint comes from buildings

40% of EU’s final energy is consumed in buildings

20% of CO2 emissions can be reduced by digitalisation*

Environmental risks

Caverion’s business does not involve significant environmental 
risks. Caverion’s own operations are not extensively 
energy intensive. Waste generated and chemicals used in 
Caverion’s operations are recycled and disposed according 
to regulatory requirements. For most part, the environmental 
impact of Caverion’s operations relates to localised noise or 
dust. Caverion continuously follows legislation changes on 
environment in the EU area and in the other operating countries.
