Sweden Office Snapshot

Anders Elvinsson • 07/10/2020

In the third edition of the Cushman & Wakefield report Office Snapshot Sweden we highlight sustainability as a competitive advantage. Further, we explore the recent office market development in the main markets of Sweden and evolve on the monetary and reduced risk benefits from focusing on environmental issues ahead. 

Post-COVID-19 working habits are expected to have an impact on office demand and investors are currently looking into what more can be done to future proof investments. A rising interest in sustainability, both from the tenant and financier perspective, is also highlighting the sense of urgency on an investment level. Investors with a focused and documented environmental framework have the possibility to attract the best global tenants, who in many cases already are discarding premises without documented sustainability classifications. 

In addition, financial institutes are granting favourable conditions both on traditional bank loans and on the bond market for classified, underlying assets. Green bonds, which have underlying assets or initiatives with positive environmental or climate impact, are currently of great interest for fund managers worldwide. 

Other benefits include both attracting the idealistic millennial generation as future employees but also, most importantly, increased real estate values. The results of recent studies conducted in collaboration with the Cushman & Wakefield team in Sweden, indicates a premium value for properties with an environmental certification.

This report provides recent updates on the Swedish office market as per the end of Q3 2020. When in need of more deep level market data, do not hesitate to send us a request.
