The Sustainable Development Goals play an integral role in the strategy of NxtGen Houses to offer high-quality, affordable housing solutions. To allow for energy transition, we base our decisions on circularity, sustainability and the well-being of future generations in mind.
During the design and construction of the NxtGen building system, we focused on minimizing the CO2 footprint and creating an optimum living comfort.
Sustainable design seeks to reduce negative impacts on the environment, and focus on the health and comfort of building occupants, thereby improving building performance. One of the ongoing challenges in the quest to make our built environment more sustainable is defining what sustainability means in terms understandable to and measurable by built environment decision makers.
NxtGen Houses aligns its sustainability objectives to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. See SDG Knowledge Platform.
NxtGen Houses contributes to SDG 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy), SDG 9 (Industry innovation and infrastructure) and SDG 11 (Sustainable cities and communities). Additionally, NxtGen Houses contributes to SDG 6 (Clean water and sanitation) and SDG 12 (Sustainable Consumption and Production).
We concentrate our efforts on those areas in which our impact is greatest; CO2 emissions, use of bio based materials and help households to achieve energy savings.
NxtGen Houses Funding
The ICMA Green Bond Principles (GBP) and the LMA Green Loan Principles (GLP) published a set of voluntary guidelines that recommend transparency and disclosure and promote integrity in the development of green financing instruments. Future funding and debt financing such as Loans and Revolving Credit Facilities (RCF’s) will be aligned to these principles. NxtGen Houses aims to mobilize debt capital for environmentally sustainable purposes. We strive towards making a positive impact on the built environment.
