Policies

By ensuring compliance with laws and regulations and transparent communication about corporate governance, we aim to build trust with our stakeholders, which is of utmost importance to us at Nyfosa.

Nyfosa’s corporate governance is based on the Swedish Code of Corporate Governance, known as the Code. Through good corporate governance and transparency, we create a stable relationship with our shareholders and other stakeholders. This also contributes to strengthening confidence in our company. In addition to the Code, corporate governance is based on Swedish legislation, the Nasdaq Stockholm Regulations for issuers and other rules and guidelines to which the company is subject.

Policies

Nyfosa is to become a responsible player and a modern property owner. Therefore, the company continuously evaluates how the business can contribute to a sustainable society. As a basis for this work, the board has adopted eight policies that highlight and specify what measures Nyfosa will take in its operations, as well as the goals the organization strives for. Some of these policies are public and can be read by everyone on the company website. Others are only accessible by company employees, board and auditors via the company intranet.

Anonymous whistle-blower function

Our employees have an important role to sound the alarm if they are suspicious of something going on in our business that violates our ethical guidelines according to our Sustainability Policy.

Examples of maladministration may be:

  • Economic irregularities and corruption
  • Serious harassment and discrimination
  • Safety risks in the workplace
  • Environmental offences

Employees are first encouraged to speak with their manager. If they want to stay anonymous, we offer a secure channel for reporting and dialogue through our whistle-blower function.

Environmental responsibility

Nyfosa strives to continuously develop our work regarding the environment. Therefore, we have an Environmental Policy that is adopted annually by the board. It is the Group Management that is responsible for compliance with this policy, which is maintained through daily contact with the management organization and through a central control function that monitors that all major investments comply with the policy.

Environmental policy

  • Work actively with energy optimization and environmental certification in Nyfosa’s buildings and premises
  • Know the properties’ environmental risks, environmental liabilities and climate risks and develop long-term sustainable solutions when implementing measures
  • Work together with the tenants for a good indoor environment
  • Carry out environmentally friendly renovations
  • Set environmental and sustainability requirements for Nyfosa’s suppliers
  • Increase competence within and awareness of the environment and sustainability among Nyfosa’s employees

Social responsibility

Social responsibility is about how the business affects people of and around Nyfosa. It is about helping to develop a society that puts people at the center and helping to create the conditions for good health, a good life and to reduce unfair differences. For Nyfosa, social responsibility is about involvement in the places where the company is located and in the tenants, visitors and residents that are located in these places. Social sustainability means protecting employees of Nyfosa, making demands on suppliers and partners, and safeguarding good working and delivery conditions.

Sustainability Report

Nyfosa’s work regarding sustainability is reported every year as an integral part of the annual report.
