EBP is supporting the Swiss National Accident Insurance Fund (SUVA), in developing a set of objectives for sustainable building as part of its "Direct investment real estate strategy" which serves as a guideline for the decision-makers in real estate management with regard to the acquisition, maintenance and running of the properties.
Suva has approximately 170 properties in its portfolio. The "Direct investment real estate strategy" serves as a guideline for the decision-makers in real estate management with regard to the acquisition, maintenance and running of the properties. The strategy is scheduled to be updated in 2013.
One chapter in the current strategy deals with the aspect of "Ecology and Sustainability". There are various downstream documents that deal with the implementation of the strategic specifications.
The aim of the "Sustainability for Suva properties" project is to formulate broad-based strategic targets with regard to sustainability and to specify and guarantee their implementation in working documents such as guidelines, instructions, etc. The scope of the project thus includes the definition of objectives in terms of sustainability in the area of real estate, as well as the harmonisation of and any additions to current documentation.
