“We have noted high activity among existing, new and potential tenants. A financial recovery and confidence in the future gathered momentum in our region during the spring. We have noted clear effects of this in our new lettings, which have been at a historically high level during the quarter. We can now sum up the first six months with positive net lettings of SEK 45 million,” says Ulrika Hallengren, CEO of Wihlborgs.
“Efforts to develop and improve the content and quality of our property portfolio are continuing. In light of the signed agreements, we are expecting vacancies to fall during the coming quarters and anticipate the largest effect in 2022.”
“Sustainability is an area of the utmost priority for many property companies, and of course, this is also the case for Wihlborgs. Certification is important, not least because it transparently documents and measures performance. At the same time, we can take many tangible initiatives on a daily basis that make a real difference. Scope 3 CO2 impact is and will remain the industry’s greatest challenge for a long time. As a result, we are now investing extra energy to reduce the use of materials and to use the right materials. We have made progress in our Kvartetten project and are planning a NollCO2 certification of the entire block.”
