Climate change is a more pertinent topic than ever. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report demands limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees, and 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.

Comprehensive energy services

Caverion experts assist customers in reaching their economic and environmental targets. We consider the environmental impact and energy efficiency of properties from the very beginning and evaluate the effects of technical solutions in terms of the entire life cycle, including:

  • Energy management
  • Energy Performance contracting (EPC)
  • Renewable energy
  • Energy audits & certificates

Climate impacts

Caverion continuously follows the development of technologies, as seen in the 2019 tendering process for our fleet renewal. Already an increasing number of gas, hybrid, and full electric vehicles are in use, and the CO2 emissions of Caverion’s service fleet continued to decrease to a level of 16,200 tCO2. (2018: 18,400 tCO2).
