The economy is called upon to break new ground in order to achieve the 1.5-degree target enshrined in the Paris Climate Agreement. Responsible for 38 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions, the construction industry in particular needs to rethink. But we are still lacking a patent recipe for how best to approach sustainable building. There are several reasons for this: each building is developed and constructed individually according to its use as well as the location. This means that strategies and concepts for sustainable construction and operation need to be planned and implemented individually. The entire life cycle must always be considered in order for experts to make accurate statements about the carbon footprint.
Preparing carbon balance sheets for buildings is among the particular focuses of our consulting services, so we have already accompanied numerous companies in the construction industry on their way to creating climate-neutral buildings.
