The construction and energy-efficiency of buildings have the largest impact on climate change. This is the main reason why our firm decided 25 years ago to focus on highly insulated wooden constructions and to avoid masonry. We constantly approved our knowledge about the latest innovations in the construction.
The Shift helps members to make use of the global framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals to map their societal ambitions.
6. Clean water and sanitation
Clean water and good sanitation protect us against many diseases. Guaranteeing clean water to every building in Belgium is a huge challenge. We lack the awareness of the comfort of clean water and good sanitation.
7. Affordable and clean energy
Renewable energy is the only way towards a cleaner environment. Too many people think that changing to renewable energy will cut down on comfort. We prove the opposite.
11. Sustainable cities and communities
The concept of CRADLE-TO-CRADLE must be a common good in urban concepts. Less must be more.
12. Responsible consumption and production
