The aim of the cooperation is to develop the energy efficiency and profitability of shopping centres owned by Citycon in accordance with the values of sustainable development. For example, modern information systems, control services and remote readings of energy and water consumption are used to calculate maintenance costs and manage fault situations.

In a wider sense, the cooperation also aims to consolidate sales in the retail sector, eco-conscious brands and customer loyalty. Granlund's expertise and multidisciplinary competence in building services, ICT systems and environmental management help at finding solutions to also activate stakeholders.

“For us, sustainable development is also an important part of both strategic and operative management.
