The guest lecture is given by Mrs. Lise Bergflødt, Business development manager in Green Construction, Skanska AB. Skanska is a global company within the building industry with construction and development business in Europe, USA and Latin America and 60 000 employees.
About 2 years ago Skanska decided upon a vision; "We are determined to be the leading green project developer and contractor". A team, the Green Construction team was established to make a strategy. The team was a diverse team, consisting of 7 employees from different parts of the company. The journey started.
Buildings accounts today for 40% of the total energy consumption in the world. The building industry is pointed out as the industry that the easiest can do something about their energy consumption. The industry is also a big contributor to the CO2 emissions and waste in the world. But why does the industry move so slowly, what are the obstacles and what kind of incentives do they need to create change? The technology is there! Lise will tell you about the findings she and her team have done so far on their journey. What steps have they taken?
The guest lecture is given as part of the Industrial Ecology course (TVM4162), but is also an open guest lecture for all interested students and employees. The lecture will be held in English.
