During the same period the global CO2-equivalent emissions have risen with about 62% according to a report commissioned by the European Union.
When it comes to real estate in Sweden, the emissions produced from heating buildings have decreased by a staggering 92% between 1990 and 2020. This is mostly because the transition away from oil-based heating systems.
With oil-based heating systems representing close to zero of the emissions in the real estate industry, combined with the fact the the electricity consumption for commercial real estate has gone down significantly, it’s clear that the majority of the emission reduction the last 15 years in the real estate industry comes from moving away from oil-based heating.
