Sustainable Case Competition

Join Valcon, MT Højgaard and Djøf to help solve a key sustainability issue that MT Højgaard is facing.

What is Sustainable Case Competition?

Sustainable Case Competition is a two-day case competition, which is organized by Djøf, Valcon and MT Højgaard. With this case competition you will solve a complex real-life sustainability case concerning Valcon and MT Højgaard. You will be solving the case in groups. Throughout the case competition, you will gain exclusive insight into how business works through the companies. The two days will be concluded with dinner and drinks Friday evening for all participants and the organizers.

What is the case competition about?

Our planet is facing critical challenges like climate change, resource scarcity, pollution, biodiversity loss and a myriad of other social, environmental, and financial risks. These risks combined with increasing pressure on the worlds’ resources are driving sustainability mainstream and placing sustainability at the center stage for business leaders. 

The construction industry holds some of the answers to a more sustainable society: 

  • 30% of Denmark’s CO2 emissions stems from the energy consumption in buildings and the construction process and the production of construction material 
  • 40% of all waste produced in Denmark stems from the construction industry
  • 90% of people's time in Denmark is spent indoors. The quality of buildings is therefore important for well-being, health and quality of life

You now have the opportunity to help MT Højgaard understand how we can deliver buildings that enable people to flourish and simultaneously have a positive impact on our climate and environment.
