100% carbon-free operation thanks to the zero-zero strategy

ENERGY AND EMISSIONS

Zug Estates is aware of its responsibility on the topic of climate change. We have set ourselves the goal of operating our entire real estate portfolio nearly free of carbon emissions by 2023 and are already extremely close to that goal at our current level of 0.9 kg of carbon dioxide per square metre of energy reference area.

The energy systems at the Suurstoffi site and the City Centre / Metalli site are key factors behind these low emission figures.

FOUR ACTION FIELDS

Emissions

  • Emission-free operation by the end of 2023 (scopes 1 and 2)
  • Carbon-free energy for heating and cooling (Suurstoffi power system and Circulago)

Energy origin

  • 100% regional, renewable electricity from 2023 onward
  • Increase in the proportion of solar energy on sites

Energy consumption

  • Expansion of the private consumption community
  • Reduction of operational electricity per square metre of rentable space
  • Tenant awareness on the topic of electricity consumption

Mobility

  • Increase in the number of parking spaces for e-vehicles
  • Promotion of the use of public transport among employees
  • Switch to electric vehicles for the entire fleet

Absenkpfad

We have reduced our greenhouse gas emissions from 17.3 to the current level of 0.9 kg per square metre of energy reference area (-94.8%) since 2010.

TWO SITES – TWO ENERGY SYSTEMS

The energy systems at the Suurstoffi site and the City Centre / Metalli site are key factors behind these low emission figures.

Brief explanation of the Suurstoffi energy system

The energy system installed at the Suurstoffi site in Rotkreuz produces no carbon dioxide emissions. The energy required for hot water, heating and cooling in the summer is provided by large geothermal installations under the property and every building is connected to those installations through an anergy grid.

Circulago lake water district heating and cooling system

The Metalli shopping area and the first few surrounding buildings are being supplied with renewable heating and cooling energy from Lake Zug since 1 April 2020.

E-MOBILITY

The promotion of e-mobility is an important field of action in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

E-parking for all tenants

If required, all tenants of Zug Estates can quickly and easily obtain a parking space with an e-charging station. Patrik Stillhart (CEO) and Martin Jöri (Head of Strategic Site Management) explain how the principle works.

KEY ENERGY FIGURES FOR 2021

The key figures are always reported from 1 April to 31 March of the subsequent year. The data is compiled by Amstein + Walthert AG, Zurich.

Ehrgeiziges Energieprojekt Haldenhof

Im Haldenhof im Zentrum von Zug hat Zug Estates ein ehrgeiziges Energieprojekt umgesetzt. Es verbindet durch einen Zusammenschluss zum Eigenverbrauch (ZEV) selbst produzierten Solarstrom mit E-Mobilität inklusive Carsharingangebot und bidirektionalem Laden. Das untenstehende Video erklärt, wie es funktioniert.
