The ambition for the Alliance is – in the common interest of its members -to create a viable, independent and international influential alliance, which supports the vision of buildings that create healthier and more comfortable lives for their residents without impacting negatively on the climate and environment – thus moving us towards a cleaner, healthier and safer world.

Our wish is that Active House becomes the future principle for new buildings and renovation.

  • Engagement in the development
  • Holistic approach to design of buildings
  • Credible communication and dialogue
