Globally, buildings account for 30% of energy consumption and almost a third of CO2 emissions. Making construction one of the most polluting and most challenging sectors to tackle. To accomplish the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) there needs to be a universal shift in the way we design and construct buildings and infrastructure projects. The need for more roads, bridges, and buildings will continue to increase. Thus, sustainable solutions and designs need to be implemented worldwide. FRI’s (the Danish Association of Consulting Engineers) mission is to help engineer a better and more sustainable world for all to enjoy by offering consulting, planning, and project management services.
