Green Building

Sustainable building with vision

A responsible attitude towards nature, climate-friendly energy technology, economical use of resources and access to clean drinking water are criteria that will decide our future. This applies in particular to buildings, especially with regard to their profitability.

The general public, policymakers and industry face great challenges in view of climate change and the continually increasing global demand for natural resources. The combination of ecological and economic sustainability is the order of the day for the real estate industry. Nonetheless, there are many questions on the path to sustainable buildings.
