A stable company with a sustainable business model

Vasakronan is owned in equal shares by the First, Second, Third and Fourth Swedish national pension funds. The owners are to ensure long-term financing of the pension system and invest their capital in various types of assets. Property investments are made through Vasakronan, among others. Our owners make high demands and Vasakronan’s assignment is to deliver a high and long-term risk-weighted return without harming people, the communities in which we operate or the environment. Vasakronan’s vision is to “create future-proof cities for everyone, where people and companies thrive.”

Our ambition

In addition to the mandate from our owners, Vasakronan’s ambition is to be Sweden’s leading property company. That is achieved by:

  • Generating a high total yield, that should also exceed that of the industry in general.
  • Being the preferred choice for tenants looking for office or retail premises.
  • Being perceived as the most attractive employer in the industry.
  • Assuming social responsibility and striving for long-term sustainable development.

To succeed, sustainable values need to be created in operations. Vasakronan therefore has a continuous dialogue with its stakeholders to survey and understand their expectations of the company. Value is created in operations through property management and development, and supplemented by active transactions.

Long-term goals

Vasakronan has ambitious goals for its operations, both short- and long-term. Vasakronan’s CEO and Management Team have overall responsibility for steering operations toward the targets and following up on quarterly results and internal steering parameters.


  • A total yield of at least 6.5% per year (rolling average over ten years).
  • A total yield of at least 0.5 percentage points higher than the industry.
  • All of our financing is green.


  • Climate neutral across the entire value chain by 2030.
  • We are self-sufficient and do not need to purchase any energy.
  • 100% circular use of materials.
    (We only use renewable, recycled or reused materials in our construction projects).
  • 100% circular waste management.
    (Our operations, and those of our customers, generate no waste that is not possible to be recycled or reused).
  • 100% fossil-free transportation.
    (Transportation for ourselves and our customers not dependent on fossil fuel).


  • Everyone who works for Vasakronan has acceptable working conditions and a good physical, organisational and social work environment free from worksite accidents.
  • Our company and our suppliers are diverse and have an inclusive corporate culture, and help individuals who are far removed from the labour market to find employment.
  • Our areas and properties are aesthetically pleasing and are designed to support:
    – occupational health and safety
    – health and well-being
    – inclusivity for everyone
  • We have committed employees and are one of the market’s most attractive employers.


To ensure that the assignment from owners is fulfilled and that we remain relevant and continue to create value for other stakeholders, Vasakronan has clear strategies for investments, customers, financing and employees. These indicate the long-term orientation and aim to create the best preconditions for offerings, properties and areas that are sustainable today and tomorrow.
