The impact Newsec makes
The built environment is behind almost 40% of global CO2 emissions. Needless to say, the real estate industry has a key role to play in reducing that share. As the largest adviser and manager in Northern Europe, we are playing our part in transforming real estate from a challenge to a solution.
Driving the transition to renewables
We are also a strategic adviser in no less than a third of renewable energy transactions on the Nordic and Baltic markets (2022), making us a catalyst of the ongoing energy transition.
Protecting the most valuable assets
Real estate is the world's largest asset class, and the epicenter of much of society's economic development. Many properties are built to last for a hundred years and more, but require care and development, not least in ensuring sustainability. We are dedicated to the long term in all our property management assignments.
Taking care of people
People on average spend around 90% of their time in buildings. They expect modern homes, workplaces and places of commerce to deliver experiences that help them lead enriched and fulfilling lives. They also expect and urban environment that is safe, convenient and uplifting - which is why Newsec is dedicated to digitalisation of the real estate industry, and wants to play a key role in urban development.
Newsec wants to be part of shaping a sustainable society, and that’s why we keep our eyes on existing as well as emerging megatrends. We are keen interpreters of how these trends affect society, as well as our clients and ourselves.
Cities occupy about 3% of the earth’s surface, but house more than half of the world’s population, consuming about 75% of global energy (and 80% of carbon emissions). That drives demand for sustainable solutions in energy, infrastructure, buildings and resources.
The world’s urban areas are also venues for several human and societal challenges, in health, safety, and general wellbeing. This presents both obligations and opportunities for private and public actors, so that cities are places where people can live and thrive.
More and more of society’s key functions in mobility, manufacturing, communications and living are being digitalized, which brings about huge changes. We see digitalisation enabling new business models, improving efficiency, and creating fresh opportunities for growth and innovation.
Digitalisation is not least a vital component in the transition towards a more environmentally sustainable society, both through enabling electrification, and by putting data and technology to use for better processes.
Climate change & resource scarcity
We have to handle risks connected to climate change, resource scarcity, reduced biodiversity and societal changes and at the same time create real and long-term value for companies.
The real estate industry has to make hands-on-decisions and have the courage to redefine and think beyond the industry as we know it today, in order to handle the green transformation.
