“This is extremely pleasing to the whole team,” said Henrik Svensson, Sustainability Manager at Storebrand Real Estate management. “Sustainability is important to us as a group and permeates everything we do. During the construction of the portfolio, sustainability has been both obvious and high priority. To get such a good position n GRESB’s evaluation is therefore a welcome acknowledgement that we’re on track.”
