Kiilto SUPER Healthy Buildings Ecosystem

Discover how you can contribute to building a Sustainable, Productive, Ecological, and Reusable approach to decarbonising the built environment and enhancing indoor living conditions.

Bringing together academic, startup and industry players interested in creating novel circular business models for the built environment

Today, the buildings where we spend 90% of our lives are responsible for 39% of global energy-related carbon emissions and have indoor air pollution levels up to 5x higher than those outdoors.

Addressing these challenges amid climate change, biodiversity loss, and rapid urbanization necessitates new collaborative relationships built on mutual openness and trust. This approach will accelerate the development and implementation of essential, SUPER solutions.

Our goals

PREVENTING Climate change

The built environment accounts for around 40% of global carbon emissions in a world that is only 7.2% circular, according to estimates from 2023.

By 2026, the construction sector in the EU27 and the UK will exceed the Paris Agreement’s carbon budget of 1.5C – unless current construction processes change.

CURING Sick Building Syndrome

Today, we spend 90% of our time indoors, and by 2050, 68% of the world’s population is expected to live in cities.

This makes construction an increasingly central place in our everyday lives. Mistakes made during the construction phase can lead to sick buildings and health problems linked to the indoor environment.

STOPPING Biodiversity loss

The built environment has been identified as one of the largest contributors to biodiversity loss, mostly due to the large material needs of the construction industry.

Between 2001 and 2023, commodity-driven deforestation alone resulted in 102 million hectares of permanent forest cover loss globally. That is equivalent to the landmass of Finland, Sweden, and the Baltic countries put together. This is especially significant, as forests act as the habitat for 80% of terrestrial species.
