Sustainable urban development

Welcome to Copenhagen: one of the world’s most sustainable cities

In Copenhagen, sustainability isn’t just a buzzword – it's a way of life. At the forefront of this movement is the DGNB system, a comprehensive assessment of building sustainability. This system evaluates buildings and construction projects based on a set of criteria designed to promote environmental, economic, and social well-being.

ArkiTours invites you to explore Copenhagen's sustainability initiatives firsthand with our specialized study tour focused on DGNB-certified projects in the region. Join us as we delve into innovative designs and practices that are shaping the future of sustainable urban development.

In Copenhagen, addressing sea level rise has become a key focus of sustainable urban development. As climate change intensifies, cities worldwide are grappling with the challenge of managing rising water levels and the threat of flooding. It's imperative to devise robust and sustainable solutions that can adapt to these changing conditions while mitigating the risk of damage and loss.

At the forefront of this effort is the DGNB system, a comprehensive assessment tool for building sustainability. It evaluates projects based on environmental, economic, and social factors, offering a holistic perspective on construction practices. ArkiTours specializes in study tours of DGNB-certified projects in the Copenhagen region, providing participants with insights into innovative approaches to climate adaptation.

Our presentations focus on Copenhagen's unique strategies for climate adaptation and rainwater management, drawing inspiration from best practices in European cities like Holland and Germany. From reopening historic watercourses to implementing local rainwater management solutions, these initiatives not only minimize flood risk but also enhance the city's recreational and multifunctional urban spaces.
