The Boligbyggeri fra 4 til 1 Planet initiative has a great challenge and an opportunity for financial support for Denmark’s most progressive contractors and developers. Contractors who will help set new standards for the climate footprint of the building sector.
Reduce the climate footprint of new housing construction in Denmark by 75 per cent. That is the ambitious goal of the Boligbyggeri fra 4 til 1 Planet initiative.
