As our sustainability review focused specially on our property portfolio, the key findings are set out below. Further information can be found in our Annual Report 2022.
Our portfolio analysis included evaluating green building certifications, energy consumption, CO2 emissions, and EU Taxonomy compliance. The results confirmed the high sustainability standards of our properties, minimizing the risk of carbon stranding in the coming decades.
- Green building certifications: Seven out of the eight office and hotel buildings already have DGNB Platin, DGNB Gold or LEED Gold certificates. These certificates are an indicator of high quality and a certain level of sustainability in a property.
- Location based assessment: Based on consumption data and 1.5 °C pathway, no stranded assets until 2037
- Market based assessment: Green electricity contracts would extend stranding risk beyond 20 years
- Due to the high performance of the portfolio and low CO2 emissions, no serious carbon risk was identified for the next 10 years. It is the target to improve data quality and reevaluate carbon risks regularly.
The below graph shows the development if no further action is taken. However, EPH will constantly improve its carbon footprint to avoid stranded assets at any time.
