Vision & values

What drives DEM?
We want to build a better world – together with our clients and partners here in Denmark and abroad. Building a better future can start today! We work in a company where in fact our work may constitute the major difference.

Sustainability is part of all of our work and thinking – from urban development plans to the design of new buildings, to energy renovations and energy management. At the local level where people live and work, we provide engineering services for homes and buildings which are energy-efficient and offer a healthy indoor climate. At the global level we use energy-efficient solutions to provide a foundation for healthy, sustainable, and environmentally sound economic growth. This contributes to raising the standard of living for people in developing countries, as well as helping to create a global partnership for development. We assist developing nations by creating energy policies and new legislation, as well as environmental improvements through the use of renewable energy sources.

To obtain a greater impact for scarce energy resources, and strengthen climate efforts, we continuously develop innovative consulting approaches, methods and tools that improve sustainability for our clients. Our values dictate that we need to think about the planet’s resources and how we use them – sustainably from cradle-to-cradle. It is “food for thought” that human beings would need four planets to continue using the earth’s resources at our current pace!
