ANDERS LENDAGER TALKS AT THE ANNUAL MEETING IN THE DANISH CONSTRUCTION ASSOCIATION

At this year’s Annual Meeting in Dansk Byggeri (The Danish Construction Association) sustainability will be the main topic of discussion. The association has thus invited experts and opinion leaders to discuss the problems we are facing – not only today – but also in the future. What is behind sustainability as a term? And do we just need more of that to solve the problems of tomorrow?

At Lendager Group we are of the opinion that we must look at long term solutions. Creating growth on the short term will not help us in the long run. We need to take responsibility for the decisions we are making today – we must take decisions, which are sustainable when it comes to economics, climate and social aspects.

With that in mind Anders Lendager, CEO and founder of Lendager Group, has been invited to speak at the debate with the title ‘Economical Sustainability – is there money in it?’ at the Annual Meeting. Anders will here present various business models used by Lendager Group on doing sustainable business.

Anders is participating in the debate with Marius Møller (CEO of PensionDanmark) and Uffe Drejer (CEO of home).
