Leading the Way with Sustainable Workspaces

Listen to this article

Finnish real estate company Antilooppi has launched POOL, the country’s first carbon-neutral workspace network, to meet growing demand for sustainable working environments.

The company says it is determined to promote carbon-neutral construction and achieve tangible sustainability outcomes including Net Zero across its 1.4 billion portfolio of 35 office and retail properties offering rental space of up to 430,000 square metres by 2030.

The carbon-neutral space concept represents a significant step forward in sustainability for the entire real estate sector according to Antilooppi, whose Head of Sustainability, Hannamari Koivula, says:

“Tackling climate change and achieving carbon neutrality are key priorities in our sustainability strategy and business. The carbon-neutral POOL solution is yet another important step towards our sustainability goals.

“Through our actions, we want to support our customers’ sustainability and spur the entire real estate sector towards a greener future. Our long-term work continues together with our customers, partners and other stakeholders.”


The climate impacts of workspaces and services were considered down to the smallest detail in advance of POOL’s launch, with energy consumed within its spaces leving zero carbon footprint as they are powered exclusively by renewable electricity, heating and cooling.

Electricity is supplied by Antilooppi’s own solar power stations as well as 100% Finnish wind power generators, with heating and cooling additionally sourced from renewable sources. Antilooppi says the premises will become even more energy self-sufficient as it ramps up solar power production.

Special attention has also been paid to environmental impacts during the life cycle of POOL spaces, as construction and materials are not yet completely emission-free – with the premises designed to be as functional and durable as possible through the use of low-carbon materials.
