Building management

In the interest of a sustainable and resource-optimised building, all larger new buildings, conversions and extensions of Energie AG Group in Austria (with the exception of the Waste Management Segment) have been made to comply with climate-friendly building standards since fiscal year 2020/2021. In addition to securing highly attractive jobs, this is also implemented in anticipation of the Taxonomy Regulation-relevant requirements for real estate assets.

Energie AG has placed its focus firmly on its employees and their well-being at the workplace. This is why modern energy concepts for the various sites are planned and implemented in addition to Energie AG proactively exercising operator responsibility in accordance with ÖNORM B1301 (property and building safety).

Together with other prominent Austrian companies and corporate groups, Energie AG is participating in a building benchmarking that in the 2021/2022 fiscal year once again documented the pioneering character of the included buildings with respect to economic operations and efficiency. Building techniques used for the PowerTower, such as the facade or component activation technique, were also used in the construction of the tower’s extension, which conformed with the standard promulgated by the Austrian Society for a Sustainable Real Estate Economy (ÖGNI). The building was commissioned in August 2022 and offers 230 additional workplaces along with 58 underground car parking spaces to the organisational units of Energie AG. In addition to health-oriented and modern workplaces, Energie AG employees also have access to flexible meeting facilities, socialising zones and a state-of-the-art “conference level”. Living up to its social responsibility, Energie AG is operating a childcare facility where the employees’ children are looked after.

As of 30 September 2022, administration buildings in Austria owned by Energie AG (with the exception of the Waste Management Segment) had four PV systems with an output of around 344 kWp and an average yearly production of 317 MWh installed on their roofs. The total surface covered with PV modules is approx. 2,400 square metres. A further 6 new systems with 870 kWp bottleneck capacity are planned between now and the year 2027.

The building yard project in Gmunden (PSG-PowerService Gmunden) was planned in accordance with climate-friendly standards. The civil engineering and building construction works (up to the roof substructure) were completed in fiscal year 2021/2022.

Energie AG is firmly committed to a sustainable real estate strategy for its properties in Austria. The up-to-date energy certificate for each property is complemented by an energy monitoring report (not applicable to the Waste Management Segment). The report recapitulates the status quo with regard to the CO2 footprint of the subject matter real estate portfolio. Various scenario calculations formed the basis on which measures were derived that will also be reflected in the Group’s sustainability action to be seen in the years ahead.

Staff catering

The company restaurants and canteens of Energie AG in Linz, Gmunden, Timelkam and Riedersbach have placed an even stronger focus on the use of regional and seasonal fresh produce compared to the previous years. Direct partnerships with regional suppliers of produce and meat are sought out and established with increased intensity. In the 2021/2022 fiscal year, the canteens prepared a total of 136,567 fresh servings of food for employees (previous year: 93,078). The decline in fiscal year 2020/2021 is attributable to employees working from home as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the interest of a balanced diet, the menus also feature vegetarian meal options. Around 25% of all lunches sold are vegetarian. The menu planning system is evaluated regularly with the aim of preventing or minimising food waste.

IT services

To reduce electronic waste, the useful life of user devices such as laptops and PCs was increased to five years. Once the equipment has reached the end of its useful life, there will be a certified data deletion and a refurbishment carried out by a sheltered workshop.

Efficiency gains and energy consumption reductions are the predominant objectives in the operation of the data centre. Thanks to having virtualised more than 95% of its server landscape, significant energy savings were achieved in the consumption of electricity and air conditioning as well as operation of the hardware resources. Additionally, the exhaust warm air is used to heat the building.

The use of central multi-function devices delivers savings in consumables such as toner and ink, which in turn save money and resources. The relocation of printers from the office workstations to central pickup points also contributes to an improvement of the air quality at the office workstations.
