Environmental mission and strategy (ESG)
PASSIVE HOUSE is a building standard that is truly energy-efficient, comfortable, affordable, and ecological all at the same time. PASSIVE HOUSE building principles have been around for more than 30 years and follow the 5x typical principles illustrated below. The PASSIVE HOUSE standard has been successfully implemented worldwide with tens of thousands of buildings in all different hot and cold climates. Buildings are designed specifically for local conditions. Typical buildings consume up to 40 percent of global energy use and contribute up to 30 percent of annual global greenhouse gas emissions and are contributors to climate change. With Passive House standards you will enjoy comfort, exceptional indoor air quality, and a healthy sustainable home with low utility bills. The PASSIVE HOUSE Standard offers a solution towards a low-carbon future for residential and commercial building.
