CO₂ reduction target and pathway

In 2019, we developed a detailed CO2 reduction pathway for our property portfolio. For our around 1.6 million square metres of floor space, our reduction pathway forecasted an influenceable 75% reduction in relative CO2 emissions (intensity) by the year 2050 – assuming a continued average increase in portfolio and floorspace of 20 000 m2 per year. 2020, Swiss Prime Site’s Sustainability Board further tightened the reduction target for the property portfolio. The aim is now to achieve climate neutrality in the operation of the portfolio by 2040.
