Housing - sustainable housing for all
In line with the "New Leipzig Charter", which was adopted by the European urban development ministers in 2020, and our ECE Housing Code', ECE creates sustainable and flexibly usable living space for all population groups. For example, at Quartier Elbrücken in Hamburg's Hafen City, our sustainability concept goes beyond the conventional, certification-relevant issues. After completion, each construction site will not only be awarded the PLATIN of the HafenCity Ecolabel, but will also meet further targets for more sustainable construction. In addition to the sustainable use of energy resources and the use of environmentally friendly building products, special attention is also paid to the health and comfort of the occupants. High energy standards minimize energy consumption during operation. The use of CO2-reduced cements in the concrete elements saves more than 10% emissions compared with a comparable building. Thus, all measures can save around 4,000 t of CO2.
