Henning Larsen's CSR policy is based on our strong dedication to protect and promote the principles of the UN Global Compact. We have been members since 2008 and continuously strive to improve our impact in our own organization, through our designs, and in our collaboration with global partners. On an annual basis, we publish a Communication on Progress report to demonstrate our continued commitment to the principles.
We are strong supporters of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We work to contribute to the achievement of the goals and their underlying targets through our projects around the world and through the way we operate our own organization.
Henning Larsen attaches great importance to designing environmentally friendly and integrated, energy-efficient solutions. Incorporating sustainability into building processes has never been more important. The building industry generates almost 40 % of CO2 emissions and 30% of waste. Therefore, resource-efficiency should be implemented in building designs. This means that knowledge of energy optimization, materials, and resources are essential design parameters. We strive to make our designs energy and resource-efficient from conception.
