Towards the Planetary Boundaries
The planetary boundaries, developed by Stockholm Resilience Centre, define the absolute thresholds for what our planet can carry. As the red markings show, we are currently overshooting several of the boundaries. In other words, we use resources as if we had more than the one planet that we have.
Our goal is clear: we want to build homes within the planetary boundaries to shape a regenerative real estate sector. We’re not there yet, but our journey has begun.
That means eliminating carbon, waste and toxic materials. It means maximising circularity, biodiversity and renewable energy creation.
...and much more!
In our first projects, we have managed to reduce the carbon per tenant to be 75% below the 2022 DGNB Gold level in Denmark.Innovation
This is a result of systematic design decisions, ambitious investments and tools such as our early-LCA “Carbon.Tool”. But we still have a long way to go.
Creating biodiversity in all the sites we build
We are in the middle of a global biodiversity crisis and the real estate sector carries its share of the responsibility.
We are committed to achieve Biodiversity Net Gain in all our development projects, meaning that there will be more biodiversity at the site after we enter than before.
In addition, we proactively manage our offsite biodiversity impact in our supply chain that stems from, e.g., the raw materials we use for our buildings.
