More about Scandens
Construction and operation of buildings cause almost 40% of global CO2 emissions.
We are a team of passionate individuals who are deeply concerned about the impact of climate change on our planet. Growing up, we witnessed the changing landscape of the Swiss mountains, with disappearing glaciers and moors. The global consequences of climate change are dire, with rising sea levels, species extinction, and devastating fires.
The building sector contributes nearly 40% of global CO2 emissions, and urgent action is needed to combat this. As a team of building engineers, developers and finance experts, we believe that we can make a difference by transforming the industry with sustainable practices and innovative solutions.
Decarbonizing the building sector.
At Scandens, we believe that the decarbonization of the building sector requires CO2 to be considered as a crucial KPI in the early project phases of renovation planning or deciding between new construction and renovation. This can increase complexity and effort, but we are here to simplify the process. Our goal is to make renovation planning easy and efficient, empowering real estate consultants and owners to make informed decisions that are both climate-compatible and financially attractive.
Through our work, we strive to speed up the transition towards a climate-compatible building sector, contributing to a sustainable and livable future. We believe that by providing solutions that reduce the environmental impact of buildings, we can make a positive impact on our planet and future generations.
Be the leading software platform for building renovation planning and decarbonization.
Our vision is to be the leading provider of software technology that enables optimal building decarbonization, making it easy for real estate consultants and owners to reduce the carbon footprint of their buildings. By 2025, we aim to save 10,000 tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Switzerland and 700,000 tons of GHG emissions in Europe by 2030.
We provide you with insights and know-how about building decarbonization
In addition to our innovative software solution, Scandens is committed to supporting real estate stakeholders in their efforts towards sustainability. We believe that knowledge is power, and we are dedicated to raising awareness about climate change, sustainable construction and renovation, policies, and finance.
To this end, we have created an extensive encyclopedia that contains essential information that real estate owners, consultants, managers, and engineers need to know. This encyclopedia is a free resource that is accessible to everyone, and it is designed to provide valuable insights into sustainability and decarbonization in the building sector.
Our goal is to empower real estate professionals to make informed decisions and take action towards a more sustainable future. Join us in our commitment to building a better world, one building at a time.
