Castellum’s tradition of sustainability reaches far back into the company’s history. Right from its founding, we have worked on energy efficiency and certification. Over time, the sustainability issue has grown and several perspectives have been added. At Castellum, we see ourselves as a long-term builder of communities. In this light, the company’s strategy is to take sustainability issues seriously from a financial, ecological and social perspective. Our sustainability efforts are integrated into everything we do, and a natural part of our daily work.

About the Sustainability Report

The Annual Report includes Castellum’s Sustainability Report, which follows the guidelines in the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework. The basis for the analysis is a completed stakeholder dialogue and a materiality analysis. The Sustainability Report is prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards: Core level. Castellum’s ambition is to integrate sustainability initiatives into all its operations, which is why their description is found as part of the regular structure of the annual report.

Castellum has supported the UN Global Compact since 2014 and has taken a position on and responsibility for the ten principles concerning human rights, labour rights, the environment and anti-corruption that comprise the basis of the tasks in the Global Compact. This Sustainability Report comprises Castellum’s Communication on Progress and is a report of the company’s support for the ten principles of the Global Compact and the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

The Sustainability Report includes all wholly owned Group companies, but does not include data from the Finnish property group Lindström Invest, which was acquired in the second half of 2020.
