BUILDING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Studies show that a typical home built to meet building regulations costs over £1,500 a year to heat. But the exceptional thermal performance of Trivselhus technology can deliver massive reductions.
By saving energy Trivselhus Climate Shield® helps developers to protect the environment and fight climate change by reducing fossil fuel emissions.
Trivselhus design and manufacture can help developers to achieve an ‘A’ rated Energy Performance Certificate in a cost-effective way.
We make a practical commitment to the wellbeing of future generations by embedding energy saving technology, and renewable, recyclable raw materials into our Climate Shield® system.
All wood used in the manufacture of the Trivselhus Climate Shield® is sustainably sourced.
Future UK building regulations look set to demand increasing thermal performance from the building fabric. Trivselhus Climate Shield® forms a superior building envelope, so that designers can easily achieve compliance with existing and new building regulations and the Fabric Energy Efficiency standard.
There is no need to compromise on the beauty and elegance of buildings. Our fabric first approach frees developers and architects from reliance on costly bolt-on renewable technologies.
TRIVSELHUS is a wholly owned subsidiary of Södra – the largest forestry cooperative in Sweden. Södra is an economic association with a membership base of 51,000 forest owners in southern Sweden.
Members own more than half of the privately owned forest in the region. Since its inception the Södra forest industry group members have demonstrated a wholehearted commitment to responsible commercial forestry and an active consideration for natural and cultural values and social issues.
The highest pedigree timber from our forests is used by Trivselhus. Swedish slow-grown softwood is the best that money can buy. The relatively slow growth produces straighter, stronger and longer-lasting wood, than that available from faster-growing trees. As a result it is highly sought-after and Södra supplies timber products worldwide.
We are proud of the green credentials of this long-standing Swedish forestry institution. Södra places the environment at the heart of forest management. It believes that sustainable operations mean long-term profit - so responsible forestry is an environmental imperative and an economic necessity.
Södra promotes responsible forestry by setting challenging environmental targets for the various parts of the company. Södra’s main environmental targets are to reduce energy consumption and carbon dioxide to air emissions. It also actively promotes careful soil and water management and works hard to achieve excellent standards of workplace safety.
