“Climate change changes our economic, societal and cultural life. Only those who understand the chances and the interdependencies today, can develop sustainable and credible solutions.”

Buildings according to the CIRCULAR ECONOMY PRINCIPLE create an ecologically positive footprint by cleaning outside air and rain water or creating habitats for plants and animals.

Furthermore, through the consumption and production of renewable energies, these buildings provide more energy in the long term than they themselves consume - making them energy positive buildings.

Today, acting sustainably is a top priority in all work and home environments. Those wanting to have a future competitive advantage in designing living environments have to intensely address how the current business models are impacting the environment and society.

Urbanisation is a global megatrend and it will increase even more in the future. It is therefore all the more crucial that the necessary urban change is implemented using design for disassembly and other Cradle to Cradle® innovations.

Today, ecological construction in connection with renewable energy solutions are more than just alternative strategies. They are already the central focus for forward-looking investment models and brave architectonic infrastructure planning. That means that “corporate social responsibility” should no longer only be a footnote but a fundamental part of an overriding urban “now strategy” for municipalities, investors as well as private and commercial property owners. Cities are facing big new challenges as a result of the already existing climate change. Intelligent city planners and their alternative concepts bring together the potential of nature and technology; comprehensive green façades regulate the temperature and improve the air, and synergetically integrated renewable energy solutions generate low-carbon energy. And therefore, the newly gained green areas and landscapes offer a high level of new quality of life.

The space in so-called megacities is limited, the population is growing and work and residential space is becoming increasingly scarce.

Cities live from their mythology. They are still synonymous with employment, cultural diversity and freedom of ideas. They are catalysts for change and growth; there is nowhere else where so many ways of life and ideas come together.

So that it remains the case in the future, increasingly more architects, property investors, construction planners and the construction industry around the world are addressing the pressing questions of climate change in their future planning. In doing so, the central task for all responsible parties is: how can the sustainability of a building or a whole city, in which aesthetic forms will remain necessary, be integrated with the increasingly important social, economic, political, technical and ecological contexts, and simultaneously the resource-saving and cultural aspects so that acceptance and identification by various groups of future users can be maintained? How utilitarian and beautiful must future sustainable construction projects be in order to comprehensively meet all requirements, to be sustainable and at the same time energy-friendly and to consequently live up to the high requirements of future generations?
