■ Environmental Targets

NAF continually grasps the energy consumption, etc., at common areas of portfolio properties to the extent possible and measures the achievement against the target.

Indicator (based on intensity) Target(Target period:2021~2025)
Energy consumption, energy-oriented CO2 emissions Average annual reduction of 1%
Water consumption With 2015 as the base year, no increase in amount used
■ Environmental Performance
Indicator/Unit 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 Change
(vs FY2015)
Energy consumption Total (1000 kWh) 10,523 10,399 9,897 9,586 9,373 8,980 -14.66%
(1000 kWh/㎡)
51.94 50.99 48.33 46.58 45.22 43.14 -16.94%
Electricity consumption Total (1000 kWh) 9,800 9,650 9,111 8,841 8,659 8,415 -14.13%
(1000 kWh/㎡)
48.38 47.32 44.49 42.96 41.78 40.43 -16.43%
CO2 Emission Total (t-CO2) 5,038 4,958 4,509 4,183 3,297 2,640 -47.60%
Intensity (t-CO2/㎡) 0.0249 0.0243 0.0220 0.0203 0.0159 0.0127 -49.00%
Water consumption Total (㎥) 24,273 23,836 23,811 24,056 22,816 19,996 -17.62%
Intensity (㎥/㎡) 0.1198 0.1169 0.1163 0.1169 0.1101 0.0961 -19.83%
Results are actual figures for the common areas in "rental apartments" among assets under management. For co-ownership properties, the figures are according to the ownership ratio.
Each of the intensity figures are calculated upon adjustment with the ownership period of each asset.
CO2 emissions figures are calculated by the Asset Management Company using the adjusted emissions coefficient and other for each electric power supplier announced by the Ministry of the Environment.
