Samhällsbyggnadsbolaget i Norden AB (publ) (“SBB”) has now begun establishing and expanding networks and infrastructure for electric car charging. As part of SBB's Sustainability Vision 2030, 30,000-40,000,000 charging points will be built throughout Sweden in the next few years. As Europe's leading player in social infrastructure, SBB has great opportunities to invest in technology development and sustainable solutions that contribute to its core business and a sustainable society.
The interest in electric cars is increasing, trends show strong growth over the next ten years. To meet demand, more charging points must become a natural part of the infrastructure. Today, 80-90 percent of electric cars are charged at home or at the workplace. SBB is now evaluating a number of different partners in several locations in Sweden and will then begin the expansion of charging points at approximately 20 properties during the summer. In total, SBB will build 30,000-40,000 charging points in the coming years, which will result in a reduction of approximately 70,000 tonnes of Co2 per year.
“We notice an increased demand from our tenants that there should be charging points in close proximity to their home or their business premises. This is a natural investment for us as it partly meets the needs of our tenants, and partly contributes to a more sustainable society where we move away from fossil fuels. This in combination with our other sustainability efforts in our property portfolio means that we are approaching our goal of being climate positive by the year 2030,”says Marika Dimming, IR and Head of Sustainability, Samhällsbyggnadsbolaget i Norden AB.
