From district heat to geothermal heat
Altogether nine buildings will switch from district heat to geothermal heat as their form of heating in Reimarla residential area in Helsinki. The Reimarla geothermal heat project is a significant investment for SATO and unique in scope even on a national scale.

Only 20% of used textiles are recycled. In order to boost interest in recycling, SATO piloted a clothing collection point at its Kauppakartanonkatu property in Helsinki.
Rental home in an apartment building considered the most sustainable choice
SATO’s study found that living in a rental apartment is considered to be the most sustainable type of housing. When renting in an apartment building, it is easy to make sustainable choices in your daily life, and rental housing providers have better resources for investing in sustainability than individual residents.
