Green living – it’s an attractive proposition for many. All the more so if it helps to reduce CO2 emissions.

A sustainably run hotel on a small Danish island is making its mark by building a special climate-positive extension.

Built entirely from wood, its interior will include upcycled furnishings from scrap building material. Its energy footprint, meanwhile, will be reduced through the use of natural light and air.

Almost 40% of global carbon emissions can be traced back to the construction industry, with steel and concrete responsible for more than a third of that figure.

Proof, if proof were needed, that a circular economy is a viable model for the construction sector.

Something to build on.
