Sustainability

Caverion knows what is needed to create user-friendly, safe, energy-efficient and comfortable built environments. We efficiently manage the entire life cycle of properties – from individual technology to advanced total solutions. 

We can help our clients to achieve a better indoor climate and more comfort and productivity for end-users or guarantee the optimisation of energy use and thereby reduced energy costs. We integrate optimat technical solutions for different types of facilities, ranging from day care centres and schools to advanced process industries. Energy efficiency is integrated into all of Caverion’s services and solutions. 

In 2015, we defined four key themes for our way of doing sustainable business. They are:

  • We aim at reducing negative environmental impact.
  • We emphasise excellent leadership. 
  • We ensure high-quality service.
  • We operate responsibly.

Sustainability highlights 2015

Life-cycle projects

Our clients are increasingly interested in energy and cost efficiency of their buildings and plants over their life cycle. With our offering the life cycle responsibility is transferred from several suppliers to just one partner guaranteeing cost, energy usage and optimal conditions for decades. Watch the film of one of our life-cycle projects in Jyväskylä, Finland!

Energy-efficiency

In 2015, we announced many new Managed Services contracts. For the Söderhamn municipality in Sweden, Caverion implements Energy Performance Contracting project worth EUR 29 million. For the client, EPC service guarantees energy savings by optimising the buildings and their performance over time. Caverion guarantees the energy savings for 10 years.

Young employees

We employed approximately 1,300 summer employees, thesis students and trainees. Trainee programmes and thesis cooperation give us a great opportunity to be involved in the professional development of young students. In fact, trainee programmes constitute an important channel of recruitment for Caverion. Many of our best professionals first joined the company as trainees.

Safety

Our active safety work and attention towards safety issues has produced results and good development continued throughout the year.

Leadership training

During the year 2015, we organised various types of coaching events to develop leadership throughout Caverion. These trainings had a total of 1,200 participants.
