Safety as a business idea

Stena Property develops city districts and manages them with care. Social responsibility is a significant aspect of Stena Property’s business concept. By managing and developing neighbourhoods in collaboration and dialogue with residents and other stakeholders, the company contributes to creating socially sustainable urban environments that promote community and security.


Safety index at peak level, despite increased concerns in society

In 2023, Stena Property’s safety index reached its highest ever level, at 79.5 per cent. This is a very pleasing result in the face of strongly increased social unrest in Sweden. The results show that the company’s long-term approach to Relationship management produces results and that there is a clear link between the measures taken and the social effects achieved. In 2023, Relationship management was ramped up further with more employees and deeper collaboration, and the company contributed a total of 976 holiday jobs for young people.

The fairytale dragon in Tynnered– a place for play and reading fun

The fairytale dragon in the Tynnered district of Göteborg was completed in summer 2023. It is an imaginative playground that encourages children to read. Stena Property also wanted to know how a temporary meeting place can affect a location that may seem unsafe. The fairytale dragon stands in a visitors’ car park close to a pedestrian tunnel. It is a location that is perceived as unsafe at certain times of the day or night. During the autumn holiday – also known as the reading holiday – the company organised fairytale reading sessions together with the city library.

Together for a safer Malmö

In 2023, the safety index increased the most in the Hermodsdal area, the Fosie district, in Malmö, by 11 per cent, from 67.4 in 2021 to 78.5 in 2023. Relationship management started in Fosie 23 years ago, and since then Stena Property has been the driver of the area’s development. In a new collaboration, the City of Malmö, MKB Fastighets AB, schools and other authorities share the vision of creating a Malmö without particularly vulnerable areas. During the year, Stena Property, together with MKB and Skanska, initiated a long-term partnership to strengthen safety and well-being in Nydala, Gullviksborg, Hermodsdal and Lindängen.

Community match

Since 2019, Stena Property has been the main partner of Hammarby Football’s social initiative Samhällsmatchen (Community match). The overall goal of this partnership is to increase security, reduce vandalism, get more people into employment and reduce inequality in Stena Property’s residential areas. School visits, career days, school class matches, integration programmes, and spontaneous football are examples of Community match activities, where Sommarjobbsmässan (Summer job fair) and Blåljusmatchen (Blue light match) are Stena Property’s most important initiatives.
