SATO Oyj: SATO achieved Green Star rating for sustainability work

SATO Corporation, Press Release, 9th September 2016 at 9:15 am

Ranked first among Nordic unlisted housing investment companies

SATO's sustainability programme has achieved a Green Star in Global Real
Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) for second time in a row.

In its peer group, unlisted housing investment companies, SATO was ranked the
best among five Nordic, and sixth-highest among twenty-four European housing
investment companies. At the global level SATO was the ninth-best among the
65 participating housing investment companies.

Head of SustainabilityKati Kniivilä
from SATO:

- A successful sustainability programme for us as a rental housing provider
requires long-term actions especially on reducing emissions, standardization
of reporting, and engaging our customers to make sustainable choices. For
example we use wind powered electricity in our buildings, we do our
sustainability reporting according to the GRI guidelines, and we encourage
our residents to ecological thinking i.e. with an annual water saving
contest.

- Looking at the GRESB results we can happily state that we have done good
work. Our overall score increased from last year, and we scored exceptionally
well on the sustainability management as well as on our policies and
disclosure. According to the review we monitor the fulfilment of
sustainability comprehensively, and our way of engaging for example our
customers and personnel was reviewed markedly higher than the peer average
score.

- As the stakeholders' interest on the sustainability policies of corporations
continues to grow, we want to evolve to be an even more responsible housing
provider.

The results of the 2016 GRESB Report are based on sustainability data
collected from 733 property companies.
