Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals are the most ambitious sustainable development agenda ever adopted by the world’s countries and are designed to achieve four great things by 2030: ending extreme poverty. To reduce inequalities and injustices in the world. To promote peace and justice. Solving the climate crisis.

The Sustainable Development Goals can make this a reality. Hem & Villamässan contributes to these goals through a number of actions. We have chosen to focus on goals 4, 7 and 12, which we feel are closest to us and where we can have the most impact.

Sustainable Development Goals

Goal 4 - Quality education for all

  • Hem & Villamässan works to offer good education for everyone, both through the stage program and advice in various areas, such as new construction, extension, bathroom, plumbing, electricity, solar cells.
  • The New Build, Renovation and Smart Home focus area – we offer knowledge and advice for consumers who are building houses.
  • The mini-builders – The activity offers children and parents the opportunity to build nature-friendly works together, resulting in knowledge-based learning.

Sustainable Development Goals

Goal 12 - Sustainable consumption and production

  • Hem & Villamässan encourages the use of digital signs instead of printed ones.
  • The Building New focus area – we are working on this by, for example, supporting the use of prefabricated houses instead of loose timber.
  • Renovate focus area – we are working on this by supporting, for example, the use of iron vitriol facades that extend the life of a house.
  • We are working towards the goal of expanding the fair to include building conservation, an area that could come from 2023 onwards, and include, for example, the reuse of materials/circularity.
  • Smart home focus area – we encourage the consumption of smart products for efficiency, lower costs and simplicity.
  • Sub-objective 12.8 – Hem & Villamässan works to increase public awareness of sustainable lifestyles, for example through inspiration and awareness.
