Corporate environmental, social and financial responsibility

Hoas abides by the essential regulations, guidelines and principles that promote sustainable development. We expect our partners to also support sustainability. 

The principles of environmental responsibility

Our aim is that the homes for students at Hoas are sustainable, comfortable and that they meet the needs of the tenants throughout the whole life circle of the apartments.  Hoas housing is usually built near schools or close to good public transport connections.

Hoas monitors consumption on a regular basis by keeping track of the use of heating, water and electricity at the properties. Hoas also advices tenants on wise and energy efficient ways of living, for example through advisory services and a yearly energy-saving campaign week. In addition, we conduct tenant surveys to measure ecological values.

The principles of social responsibility

Hoas rents out, maintains and builds affordable housing for students. Hoas operations are open, transparent and equal.  Social responsibility also includes support for wise and communal ways of living by means of advisory services and communications.

As an employer, Hoas offers secure jobs, a pleasant work environment, appropriate work equipment and a wide range of medical services. Hoas promotes equality within the workforce and creates opportunities for developing work skills, furthering professional know-how and participating in developing Hoas' operations. 

The principles of financial responsibility

Our operations are economically viable, efficient and profitable. The level of our services is competitive with business activities of the same price-quality ratio.

Hoas uses PTS, which is a long-term maintenance plan. PTS gives us a comprehensive view of the condition of a property, any future renovation needs, when they will be necessary and the associated cost. Hoas has well established procedures for annual planning and reporting.
