Sustainability & Corporate responsibility

What does sustainability mean to us?

Embracing new global objectives

The Paris Agreement presents a steep goal: the construction industry must decarbonize by 2050 on a global scale. In order to meet this target, the industry must think on its feet.  Decarbonizing power supplies by privileging renewable resources, rethinking usual materials which contain embodied carbon, and downsizing energy usage can significantly reduce emissions.

Taking inspired action

Considering the full life-span of a project is now imperative. We must embrace new ways of working. Opting to renovate existing structures, designing with multipurpose use in mind, and optimizing for low-energy consumption must become the priority. Rather than lean on traditional materials, we must reassess supplies and favor innovative solutions to avoid embodied carbon. As we shift the way we think about contemporary architecture, designing with sustainability in mind will become the norm. Building with low-carbon solutions in mind will ensure that structures we build now will support the health of the planet in the long term.

Building a greener tomorrow

Saving the planet requires more than words and Graitec is committed to doing our part to build a greener tomorrow. We follow the latest trends and technological advances to deliver cutting-edge software products and educational information on how to optimize sustainable business practices using BIM.

BIM: a simple solution to sustainability

Why BIM? BIM is inherently sustainable. We believe that BIM has the potential to significantly reduce waste within the industry by transforming the way we design, build, and track energy usage. Now more than ever, built environment professionals must adapt to new ways of working and build with energy conservation and even the potential disassembly of structures in mind.

Embracing the digital transformation will help professionals build better while optimizing profitability—and Graitec is proud to show you how.

GRAITEC is proud to support the Global award for Sustainable Architecture

The Global Award for Sustainable Architecture was created in 2006 by the architect and scholar Jana Revedin, together with the Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine, the cultural partner of the award.

The Global Award Community, which now consists of 80 contemporary architects from around the globe who have received the award, works towards a sustainable architectural ethics and fosters research, experimentation and transmission in the fields of sustainable architecture, urban renewal and academic social responsibility. It defines architecture as an agent of empowerment, self-development and civic rights.
The Global Award is under the patronage of UNESCO.

Sustainability is more than just a buzzword. The Built Environment Industry is responsible for about 36% of global emissions, according to the United Nations 2021 Global Status Report for Buildings and Construction.

Leverage the transformative power of BIM
By focusing on education, Graitec teaches Built Environment professionals about the transformative power of BIM. Graitec curates original white papers and articles explaining the many ways BIM can help take your business to the next level, whether you’re an architect, contractor, engineer, manufacturer, or facilities manager.

Expertise to transform the construction industry
Our software training programs and consultancy packages help professionals integrate this innovative technology to its best advantage by building BIM literacy. BIM files are living documents, here to serve as an ongoing guide to the needs of a structure—and they’re not only for professionals. By learning about how data-rich BIM files can help, homeowners can leverage the power of BIM to maintain their homes, reduce energy consumption, and streamline future renovations.

Outreach to inspire sustainability
Our commitment to BIM education extends to collaborations with organizations like Habitat for Humanity and the Cité de l’Architecture et Patrimoine that highlight the potential for BIM to have powerful, real-world results. We value the opportunity to work together to educate and celebrate the BIM’s power in transforming the way we approach design and construction.
