Environmental Protection in Connection with Conversions and New Construction

Challenges, Opportunities and Risks

A key opportunity afforded by new construction and development projects is that climate and environmental aspects can be planned in right from the beginning of the life cycle. However, this also brings with it a considerable challenge – we must ensure that the buildings we construct now will meet the 2050 sustainability requirements.

The rising prices for materials and construction services could lead to the risk that the procurement department chooses cheaper – and thus possibly less environmentally friendly – construction materials in order not to encumber the later rental price.
