Model Homes 2020 - un des 100 projets les plus durables du monde

Model Home 2020 selected as one of the world’s 100 most sustainable projects

Résumé

Model Home 2020, created by the VELUX Group, has been acclaimed for its contribution to sustainable buildings of the future. The project has just been included in the newly-created list, Sustainia100, of the world’s 100 most sustainable projects.

Sustainia100 is an international list of 100 current and sustainable initiatives from all over the world. Each exemplifies the innovation and inspiration behind sustainable solutions in ten different sectors: energy, buildings, cities, resources, foodstuffs, fashion, health, education and IT. The intention of the Sustainia100 list is to encourage and motivate ordinary people, trade and commerce, and politicians; and to use existing projects to provide an overview of the building bricks and solutions that are available, here and now, to create the sustainable society of the future

Model Home 2020 – source of inspiration for the future

With its appearance on the Sustainia100 list, Model Home 2020, comprising six demo buildings in five European countries, will help demonstrate to the world how we are capable of constructing sustainable buildings of the future with products that exist today:

“The six buildings in the Model Home 2020 project were designed and built to show one way we can meet the EU’s energy legislation demands for 2020 without compromising a good indoor climate based on masses of daylight and fresh air. By being part of Sustainia100, our vision and results will be highlighted globally as one of the hundred most sustainable projects in the world and thereby act as a source of inspiration for future projects,” says Lone Feifer, Project Director of the VELUX Group

Sustainia – sustainable society of the future 
Sustainia100 is part of Sustainia, a model of sustainable society of the future based on existing green solutions and technologies. It was created by the think tank Mandag Morgen (Monday Morning) together with several international champions of climate issues, including former governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger, and EU Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard, as well as numerous international private companies, one of which is the VELUX Group.

On 20 June 2012, the Sustainia100 list of all the one hundred sustainable projects was made public at the world summit Rio+20 at the Copacabana Palace in Rio de Janeiro
