Sustainability

Sustainable and
renewable solutions
come naturally

As designers, our task is to develop and design solutions that make the world a better place to live. Sustainable and renewable solutions come naturally. A conscious choice of materials and recyclability ought to be integral elements in all good design.

We treat sustainability as a topic in our classes. The school regularly offers lectures and workshops with interesting people working with e.g. ’cradle to cradle’, biomimicry, the environment and climate issues.

We are also aware of our role in society. We seek renewable solutions that affect the environment as little as possible. Therefore, we have installed automatic sensors on all our light switches, installed additional insulation in our buildings, and reduced our water usage. Recently we have installed a state-of-the-art pellet boiler to update our energy supply. In the future, we hope to become self-sufficient of wood chips from our own pellet production.

The respect for nature surrounding us is also important. Therefore, we sort as much of our garbage as we possibly can, and we reuse material from project to project.

To sum up, your stay at the Scandinavian Design College will offer you new knowledge about sustainability and demonstrate how it can represent a natural element in everyday life.
