Advocate for sustainable buildings and communities 

Sustainable buildings are good for people and the planet and, with this target, we will continue to inspire and showcase sustainable buildings and communities to ensure a strong influence on the buildings of tomorrow.

Building strategy

2030 target: Show how to build sustainably

Advocate for sustainable buildings and communities to leverage the green transition and quality of life.

For more than two decades, we have worked with sustainable buildings by inspiring the building industry and customers to create and require sustainable buildings and communities. We are continuing this work to positively impact the buildings of tomorrow and to contribute to a more sustainable building sector. Providing inspiration and advocating for sustainable buildings and communities is a strong lever for a green transition and quality of life. See some of our efforts to create sustainable buildings:

We will also continue to advocate for sustainable buildings and communities in partnerships and through renowned forums and research, such as:

Build for Life – a new future-focused initiative 

Build for Life represents our views on the future of sustainable buildings and the elements that such buildings should provide, i.e. increased quality of life, daylight, and fresh air. The Build for Life concept promotes healthier living that benefits people and the planet through building design.

Build for Life is a regenerative approach for our future built environment

The Compass model is the foundation of the Build for Life concept and serves as a strategic tool that outlines seven points of relevance to guide the building and development process. These drivers enable collaborators across sectors to follow an easy, open-source framework for developing homes for the future. 

The Build for Life concept

Build for Life is founded on the understanding that the way we build today has an enormous impact on people as well as the planet. The project will showcase a new way of thinking, one that is centered around building a better living environment that benefits both people and the planet.

The concept is ideated and continuously developed by EFFEKT, MOE & VELUX.
