The Sustainable Choice
Environmentally conscious production goes without saying for us. Therefore, we encourage sustainable measures that reduce the use of resources and materials. We only use suppliers who live up to our own requirements for recycling at all levels. Our commitment to sustainability is found in everything we do.
By the year 2100, the earth will be inhabited by over 11 billion people
To accommodate everyone, we will need more than 2 billion new housings. This means that we have to build smarter, more efficiently and much more sustainable.
Using the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the SDGs, as our strategic framework, we have chosen a set of goals where we can commit as a company.

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally recognized green building certification system, which verifies that a building was designed to improve performance across metrics such as energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources. LEED also offers building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations, and maintenance solutions.

The EPD is based on the principles and rules that apply in the international standard ISO 14025, and has broad international acceptance.
