The Group's energy consumption consists of electricity, district heating and water, as well as district cooling at the Helsinki department store. The reported levels of energy consumption are mainly from lighting and cooling in the stores and warehouse and office premises, and from the electrical equipment used in these areas.
Real Estate Services' aim is to provide heating, ventilation and lighting conditions that are energy-efficient and cost-effective and support business operations. When improving working conditions, factors affecting employee health and wellbeing and customer satisfaction, such as indoor air quality, are taken into account.
In monitoring power consumption in the different properties, special attention is given to consumption outside of opening hours. The alarm system can be used to respond to changes in power consumption and prevent the unnecessary or inappropriate use of electricity.
The energy consumption statistics are included in the CSR report 2010.
