For us, sustainable architecture is about creating buildings and equal societies where people are in focus. The challenge, however, is to do it within the planetary boundaries. The Global Goals and our committment to Global Compact provides direction for our work.Anna Graaf, Director of Sustainability
Doing it together
White is a multidisciplinary collective where social anthropologists, environmental specialists and light designers work alongside energy experts, architects and product developers. Among others. We are convinced that diversity and cross-disciplinary collaboration is key to solving today’s social challenges and achieving our goals.
Strong social engagement is an integral part of our company culture. Through our projects we have a great opportunity to drive sustainable development forward.Alexandra Hagen, CEO
Our Code of Conduct for Corporate Sustainability, which is based on the ten principles of UN Global Compact, provides guidance on how we do business and what expectations we have on our partners – and ourselves.
All our projects begin with a sustainability analysis. In the early stages, we set common goals together with our client. By considering long-term social, environmental and financial values and gains on investment we achieve a sustainable project and a sustainable business — for our client, for us, for society and for the planet.
Holistic approach to sustainability
Around fifty specialists at White work with environmental, social and economic perspectives to ensure a holistic approach to sustainability. We coordinate certifications, dialogue processes, social impact analyses and environmental assessments. Our specialists within digital design perform analysis for daylight, micro climate and energy calculations.
We challenge ourselves and our clients to move towards zero carbon to drive development in the industry forward and contribute to a sustainable future!Anna Graaf, Director of Sustainability
