Regulatory press releases  – 
Fastighets AB Balder has summarised the fiscal year of 2023. The Annual and Sustainability Report, providing an overview of the group's progress towards financial and sustainability goals, is now available on the company's website.

With a diversified property portfolio and high adaptability as a foundation, Balder consistently works broadly and purposefully to stand resilient. This was also the case in 2023.

“2023 was in many ways similar to 2022. There is still turmoil in the external environment, contributing to continued global uncertainty. As a company, we are constantly adapting to current conditions. We focus on streamlining day-to-day operations and looking after our customers, properties and financing,” says CEO Erik Selin.

The Sustainability Report for 2023 is emitted with an initial adaptation to the EU directive CSRD for increased transparency and comparability.

“Balder’s determined work within the sustainability area is yielding results. During 2023 the proportion of climate risk analyses of our property portfolio has increased significantly and is something that we are very proud of. Within the area of social sustainability Balder continues to take a long-term responsibility in areas where the company operates. Balder’s social investments are made in close cooperation with tenants and local actors, and the need in each residential area determines which types of contributions are to be prioritised. With a clear establishment of sustainability topics within the organisation and an increased transparency in our sustainability reporting, we continue to keep a steady pace forward,” says Ewa Wassberg, CFO and acting sustainability manager at Balder.

Here follows some sustainability related highlights:

  • Positive momentum in Balder’s ESG risk rating as Sustainalytics updates to 12.3 from 13.8, indicating that Balder remains stable within the low-risk framework and that the company continues to perform well compared to peers.
  • Balder’s climate goals have been validated by the Science Based Target Initiative.
  • Intensified work with climate risk analyses during 2023 and where large proportions of the property portfolio, closer to 750 properties and 1,650 buildings in Sweden. Denmark, Finland and Norway, has gone through climate risk screening.
