The company

Founded in 2016, EcoReal Ltd is a growing expert company specialised in property and construction business. The purpose of our business is to make our clients’ buildings carbon neutral while taking into account the well-being of building users. Our goal is to become the most competent partner for responsible property owners by 2025. Our three values guide our operations: sustainability, reliability, and efficiency. Our strategy is based on the following megatrends: global warming, energy transition, carbon neutrality, well-being, and digitalisation. Following these megatrends, we have set five strategic goals for years 2021–2025. These goals are happy clients, competent personnel, continuous services, profitable growth, and reduced emissions. We monitor the progress of these goals through our annual sustainability report.

Our clients are professional property owners and users. We produce them energy services, condition services, construction and consulting services, technical management services, and environmental and sustainability services. Our competitive advantages include good management, implementation capacity, competence, and independence. To ensure client satisfaction, we conduct a client satisfaction survey twice a year. According to the most recent survey (May 2022), our clients are happy or very happy with EcoReal’s services. Our net promoter score (NPS) was 60, which can be interpreted as an great result. We also measure client satisfaction immediately after the delivery of a service by sending the client a satisfaction survey. Our project-related NPS score for the past year was 68 (May 2022).

EcoReal employs nearly 60 people with versatile experience and a long history in building development, maintenance, and financing as well as corporate responsibility. Bureau Veritas Finland has issued EcoReal quality and environmental certificates ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. We also monitor the happiness of our own personnel on a regular basis. The average score of all responses to our September 2021 personnel satisfaction survey was Good (4.01/5). Nearly all the respondents agreed or strongly agreed with the statement: The company does meaningful work. The respondents also gave high scores to our managerial work, communality, transparency, and ambition.
