Leading consulting group with a 360° approach
EU Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard and Kåre Press-Kristensen
Last week, one of Denmark’s most environmentally sustainable homes was inaugurated by prominent speakers such as the EU Climate Commissioner and the Danish Minister of the Environment.
It looks like any other single-family home. Nevertheless, the Press-Kristensen family, who owns and built the swan-labelled house, reports zero electricity bills, a heating bill that barely picks at the budget, water consumption that is down by 50 per cent, and minimal environmental impact in terms of building process and materials. For this reason, a host of politicians and press turned out to learn more about the house in Brønshøj, a suburb of Copenhagen. Senior Consultant in the Danish Ecological Council Kåre Press-Kristensen has lived in the house for two years and welcomed everyone in his backyard to share his experience in living in one of Denmark’s most environmentally sustainable, energy-efficient houses.
“I’m glad that top politicians as well as representatives of the private business sector take the time to visit my home to learn what it is actually like to build a swan-labelled house,” said Press-Kristensen.
