Case: REDUCING THE CARBON FOOTPRINT OF ITÄMERENTORI PROPERTY
The energy efficiency of the KOy Itämerentori property has been systematically developed, and its energy consumption and carbon footprint have been significantly reduced. Itämerentori saved 10 per cent in both electricity and district heating in 2012 compared to 2011. Water consumption was reduced by more than 30 per cent. The property’s carbon footprint was reduced by 7 per cent.
The property went through an energy audit during the years 2011 and 2012. Savings have been gained by, among other means, optimizing technical systems, for example by adjusting lighting and ventilation operating times. There have also been changes to the building automation at Itämerentori, and the automation has been connected to a remote host where system statuses are being systematically monitored. Energy and water consumption may be monitored by the hour so that possible offsets can quickly be adjusted.
Organic, energy and toxic waste, paper, cardboard, metals and glass are all being sorted and recycled separately. Mixed waste is no longer collected. Amounts of waste have decreased: in 2012, the property produced approximately one third less waste compared to the previous year.
The property users are being regularly communicated with and supported to achieve their own environmental objectives.
Itämerentori has acquired renewable energy certificates. The LEED environmental certificate has been applied for the property. The LEED for Existing buildings is an environmental classification system especially for existing buildings.
