Climate calculations have been made for industrial buildings and office buildings for Volvo Cars' operations. WSP has assisted with strategy and calculation expertise. The result from the calculations will form a baseline for setting climate requirements regarding the reduction of CO2e emissions in future construction projects.
Together with Volvo Cars, WSP has been looking at what the construction process looks like today and how climate requirements should be set in order to have an impact already during the planning stage, but above all in buildings that are finally erected.
- We have previously developed a fine collaboration in sustainability issues by, among other things, being LEED consultants where we work on certifying new construction with LEED Gold. It is incredibly fun to be able to support a large global company in this important challenge. The outcome can have a big impact on global climate work. Hopefully, other major global companies will follow suit, says Kajsa Andersson, Project Manager – sustainable construction at WSP.
During the project, WSP Sweden was contacted by WSP's office in China, where they work with similar issues.
