Active House Denmark is ready to play its role
Active House Denmark (i.e. AktivHus Denmark), the new chapter of Active House Alliance launched on 29 October 2014, held its first conference on 15 January in Denmark and now became an official player in the Danish market for design tools in the sustainable construction sector. More than 60 stakeholders met up on this occasion to participate in the foundation of the society in which the international Active House Alliance has got hands on the formation last year.
At the conference on sustainable buildings, the initiative received nice words from the Climate, Energy and Building Minister Rasmus Petersen, whose presence signaled the importance of the newly born association:
“The government has to build political strategy which is focused on promoting sustainable construction in Denmark. I am pleased to see that the construction industry is also working actively to promote sustainable construction. The formation of AktivHus Denmark is a good example for this endeavor.”
The new Danish network is ready to establish a platform for assessing sustainability in both new construction and renovation for small and medium-sized buildings in Denmark and to spread sustainable construction on national level. Its main goal is to increase awareness and experience of building creating healthy and comfortable houses while respecting the environment. AktivHus Denmark wishes to engage in dialogue with all parts of the construction value chain – from builders and financial institutions to advisors, material manufacturers and executing companies – by focusing on both energy and climate and environmental aspects. As an ultimate goal, it strives that sustainable buildings become builder’s natural choice in the future.
