We bear our responsibility for homes, a fundamental human need. In addition to long-term business operations, wellmanaged assets and competent personnel, we want to work for the good of the customer and the environment, while at the same time contributing to the development of society, business and industry. We move towards carbon neutral cities.

Homes to stand the test of time

SATO is one of Finland’s largest rental housing providers. We have been experts in housing for more than 80 years, and hundreds of thousands of Finns live in homes built by us.

We acquire and build rental apartments in growth centres near good public transport connections and services, with an eye on long-term ownership. We participate in developing entire neighborhoods together with cities, and our goal is to build pleasant homes and diverse living environments for decades to come.

Sustainability guides our operations

We ensure profitable business in the long term, sustainably. The foundation of our sustainable business is uniform and transparent ways of working, open communication and reporting, and co-operation with stakeholders.

We enable our residents to live sustainably, and as a long-term owner, we take care of the value of our homes. We pay taxes to Finland. We also expect our partners to operate responsibly.

Sustainability programme

Our sustainability work is guided by SATOs strategy and sustainability programme, as well as themes that we have evaluated to be material based on discussions with our stakeholders. We have selected our sustainability focus in line with our strategic targets.
