Climate-Neutral Real Estate: The Future of Sustainable Living in South Tyrol

Updated: Sep 14, 2023

Climate change is one of the most significant challenges of our time, and the construction sector plays a crucial role in this context. Globally, the construction sector contributes to approximately 40% of CO2 emissions. To reduce these emissions and make a positive contribution to climate protection, carbon-neutral properties are becoming increasingly important. A carbon-neutral property (also known as a climate-neutral or carbon-neutral building) is a building designed, constructed, and operated in such a way that it has no negative impact on the climate over its lifecycle. This means that the property either produces no CO2 emissions or that any emissions produced are fully offset. South Tyrol is renowned for its breathtaking natural scenery. It is, therefore, no surprise that the region is taking a leading role in the development and construction of climate-neutral properties. The local construction industry in South Tyrol has also specialized in using sustainable materials and technologies. Traditional construction techniques are combined with modern, energy-efficient methods to create buildings that are not only environmentally friendly but also comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. An excellent example of an eco-friendly property is Hartmann House II in Merano. It combines modern design with sustainable materials and technologies to create an energy-efficient and comfortable living environment. The property is powered by geothermal energy and district heating, covering its energy needs. Furthermore, special attention was paid to thermal insulation and the efficient use of natural resources during planning and construction.

Carbon-neutral properties are an important step towards a more sustainable future. They not only contribute to climate protection but also offer high living comfort and improve the quality of life for residents.
