KappAhl in environmental project with
Steen & Ström
KappAhl and Steen & Ström Sweden have agreed to collaborate with the goal of reducing the negative environmental impacts in stores and shopping malls.
- For many years now, KappAhl have worked with long-term environmental care as a part of the business, says Ann-Marie Heinonen, Head of Environment at KappAhl. We can see that we make a difference and we are always looking for ways to develop our commitment.
The cooperation between the parties is not exclusive, but both parties have similar partnership with other companies. During the period options will be reviewed and tested to be continuously monitored. The project is planned to last for one year starting in September 2010. The manager of the project from Steen & Ström is Property Management Director Christer Arnesson and from KappAhl it is Construction Manager Ulf Biederbeck. The project will include employees and consultants to assist with their knowledge.
