Lowering environmental impacts will positively contribute to the success of medical buildings and spaces.

How we play our role in the value chain

We aim for a construction process without waste. See how we take the complete life cycle of modular constructions into account.


Environmental objectives 2030


Carbon neutral*

Mono streams (recycle streams): 80%

Daiwa House Modular Europe: 80% own energy generation

Projects: energy neutral

*Scope 1 and 2 (Scope 3 depending on the developments of carbon storage in biobased materials).

Climate change remains one of the most urgent challenges for society and we all need to accelerate our actions to reach the ambitions of the Paris Agreement. Daiwa House is committed to become climate neutral by 2030. Innovation and partnerships are crucial to reach our goal.

Contract for modern new laboratory

In Elst, Medexs is building a new, modern laboratory called Dicoon (diagnostics combination oost-Nederland). Here Rijnstate, Ziekenhuis Gelderse Vallei (ZGV) and Canisius Wilhelmina Ziekenhuis (CWZ) will bring together their laboratories for medical microbiology, immunology, clinical chemistry and clinical pharmacy. With the construction of this new laboratory, Dicoon is focusing on sustainability. The construction will be circular and modular. The components will be prefabricated, thus reducing transport ovements. Industrialised modular construction leads to 50 per cent less CO2 emissions and more economical use of raw materials. The new laboratory will open its doors in the second half of 2023.
