Sustainable design at Kinoo

The landmark Brundtland Commission Report (1987), commissioned by the United Nations, underlined the necessity of an economic development that could be sustained without depleting natural resources, damaging the environment or compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Kinoo meets the broader challenges of sustainable development by recognizing the importance of appropriate design strategies to create the vision and the tools that enable suitable, proactive and positive building practices.
