AF Bostäder and Bokompakt have been awarded the "Skåne Solar Award 2015" in the "Solar Cells of the Year" class.
AF Bostäder and Bokompakt have been awarded the "Skåne Solar Award 2015" in the "Solar Cells of the Year" class. Bokompakt receives the prize for "an exciting design concept" with "roof-integrated solar cells with good exposure in the cityscape" and "a strong symbol value for the target audience". Bokompakt continues to attract much attention in Swedish and international press, and the study visits are many. AF Bostäder has built Bokompakt - Sweden's smallest student housing - to challenge today's building rules and find new ways to build high-quality student housing, with low housing costs and sustainable energy solutions. Bokompakt is self-sufficient for heating, thanks to solar cells and the recovery of waste water heating. The prize is awarded by Solar Region Skåne - a association founded by Malmö City, Energikontoret Skåne and Lund University, in collaboration with E.ON Värme and Service Administration in Malmö city. Thanks a lot!
In 2018, AF Bostäder carried out improvements on the indoor climate at four properties. All regulating valves and thermostatic valves were replaced, and tenants now have a more consistent indoor temperature.
AF Bostäder has a zero tolerance policy towards all forms of corruption. Preventive work is important and therefore new guidelines for business ethics were adopted in January 2018.
An analysis of spot checks in randomly selected housing areas shows that between 70–85% of tenants’ residual waste, mainly food waste, is wrongly thrown away – and could have been recycled.
For the second year in succession, AF Bostäder reduced its greenhouse gas emissions – down by 89% since 2016. The reduced climate impact is mainly due to switching to renewable district heating and electricity.
AF Bostäder opened two new laundry rooms at Vildanden, where the tenants can wash their clothes using only cold water. The new technology reduces both energy consumption and the spread of chemicals.
Resource usage is an area in which AF Bostäder has considerable possibilities to make a positive impact. The target is that 50 % of total waste is to be sorted.
AF Bostäder has long been involved in active environmental management. During 2016, we began to widening the perspective further and started to report on the activities in a Sustainability Report.
Resource usage is an area in which AF Bostäder has considerable possibilities to make a positive impact. Using smart and efficient solutions, AF Bostäder creates good conditions for waste sorting and recycling.
AF Bostäder works intensively to reduce energy consumption. The focus is on properties built before 2009 and the aim is a 15 % reduction in energy consumption among the older properties in the portfolio by 2019.
AF Bostäder reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by almost 80 % in the period 2016–2017. A contributing factor is the change to renewable electricity in the properties– an initiative suggested by a proactive tenant.
In the autumn of 2017, ten of AF Bostäder’s corridors and over 50 tenants took part in a social project in cooperation with the pro-inclusion association Föreningen Hållihopp in Lund.
When AF Bostäder realized that the cartakers spent about 2-3 full-time posts per year to keep track of the waste stations, the information campaign "Do not waste the waste" was born.
If your employees are doing well, then AF Bostäder are doing well! That's why AF Bostäder invests heavily in wellness, happiness and fellowship
We continue to optimize energy use in the older property portfolio. That's why we installed our first geothermal plant at Kämnärsrätten - and halved the property's heat consumption.
