Redefining sustainability

Through a holistic approach, the Arctic Center of Energy will both meet today’s highest demands on sustainability, and also create tomorrow’s solutions.

Rickard Jonsson

Project Manager, Skellefteå kommun

Skellefteå is on a sustainable path, aiming to integrate sustainability into all municipal projects. With the Arctic Center of Energy, we strive for ambitious environmental goals. With sustainable construction in wood, we aim for certification at the Sweden Green Buildings Council's Gold level and ZeroCO2.

With the goal of building with as low a carbon footprint as possible, the architectural process has focused on innovative design principles and recycling of materials.

Sofia Viklund

EHS Coordinator, PEAB

Integrating recycling early in construction projects creates good conditions for successful results. Carefully preserving valuable building components from nearby demolition sites not only reduces the carbon footprint but also adds historical depth to the new Arctic Center of Energy.
