    More than
    energy saving

    Originating in the US in the 1970’s, green buildings can be defined as having structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout their lifecycle.

    Today’s conversation is now geared around how green buildings deliver on economic priorities such as return on investment and risk mitigation as well as social priorities such as employee productivity and health.

    Discover how, by investing in a sustainable green building you can benefit from energy and cost savings, reduce your CO2 emissions, increase your brand reputation, have happy, healthy employees and stay competitive. It’s about taking a long term view that can often deliver surprising short term results.

    It's not just about developing energy efficient buildings - it's also about how to make buildings efficiently used."

    - Anna Denell, Sustainability Director, Vasakornen AB
