Carbon Neutral Construction Development Center

Climate change increases extreme weather phenomena, such as rains and severe floods, as well as heat waves and periods of drought. The Carbon Neutral Construction Development Center provides new information on how we can both adapt to changes and mitigate climate change through housing and construction solutions.

  • Build a sustainable home

    Guide for builders of climate-friendly houses. The Carbon Neutral Construction Development Center and Lahti’s building inspection services have published Finland’s first practical guide on climate-friendly construction. The guide is intended for builders of detached, semi-detached and terraced houses.

    Housing and construction cause a third of Finland’s carbon dioxide emissions. In other words, our lifestyles significantly affect the progression of climate change. In Lahti, we seek solutions for minimising housing emissions.

    The Carbon Neutral Construction Development Center brings together experts in industry, education and research. The Development Center serves as a databank on carbon-neutral construction and as a link between research and industry.

    Lahti aims to become a carbon-neutral city by 2025.
