WE BELIEVE IN A BEAUTIFUL CLEAN WORLD WITHOUT POLLUTION, DELIVERING A FUTURE WHERE MANKIND & NATURE COEXIST IN HARMONY.
We have all heard about global warming. But, what does it mean to be environmentally friendly? Well, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA), existing buildings account for approximately 40% of the world’s total primary energy consumption and around 24% of the world’s C02 emissions. Currently, the demand for energy exceeds the creation of renewable energy. This means that fossil fuels or nuclear power are used to make up the difference. Fossil fuels have a negative impact on the environment in that they release carbon into the atmosphere, while nuclear power remains highly radio reactive for tens of thousands of years. Meaning each of these energy sources is detrimental to the environment in some form.
Around the world, professionals across all sectors are working on ways to overcome global warming. In total, it is thought we need to apply approximately 100 strategies to succeed. The majority of the technology already exists. However, it is safe to say that there is no silver bullet!
At Pure Haus, we are committed to working in the area in which we can have the most influence. Our objective is to build homes which offset the entire carbon footprint related to building, living in, and recycling a home at the end of its life.
As developers, we are becoming leaders in building homes which are focused on health, well-being, and the environment. In the process, we are showcasing to other developers that it is possible to make a difference when building homes. Our aim to is to make sustainability a part of our business model showing it is commercially viable for other developers.
First and foremost, our mission is to build homes which have a reduced energy demand. In turn, this will allow us to provide homes which rely on the consumption of energy through locally generated renewable sources.
Our ultimate aim is to create a truly carbon zero home, one which creates more energy than it consumes during its entire life cycle. This includes the manufacturing of materials, demolition, and the recycling of its components at the end of the home’s life.
