STARK Group receives prestigious climate award


STARK in Denmark has been awarded this year’s prestigious Finans Impact Climate Award 2024 for its sustainability initiative KlimaLog. The award is presented by the leading Danish business media Finans and the auditing firm KPMG.

KlimaLog is STARK Group’s latest initiative to reduce the construction industry’s climate impact. It provides builders, consultants, and tradespeople with easy access to information and documentation regarding the specific climate impact of the products used in construction. This makes the CO2 footprint as transparent as the price, simplifying the evaluation and selection process between different products and their alternatives.

The prize jury motivated the award, among other things, with the fact that the solution provides buyers with real choices:

STARK as a company has taken responsibility for taking action to combat the climate burden within the construction sector. The company is thus making an effort to motivate customers to take responsibility. 

With STARK’s KlimaLog, stakeholders in the construction industry, regardless of size, can choose more environmentally friendly alternatives, meet climate requirements in construction, and obtain qualified documentation for their LCA calculations and ESG reporting. 

STARK is the first in the industry to visualise large amounts of data collected in this way. By creating transparency about emission data at the product level, the project can help promote the green transition and motivate manufacturers to develop more environmentally friendly products.”

KlimaLog is one of many initiatives the company is working on to make construction more sustainable STARK in Denmark has, among other things, an advisory team of more than 300 trained sustainability ambassadors who are ready to advise customers in stores across the country.

Earlier this spring, STARK KlimaLog was selected as a Børsen Sustainable case along with a number of innovative and green projects from Danish businesses.

A similar solution has been established in Swedish Beijer Byggmaterial, and plans for rollout in other STARK Group markets are being prepared. KlimaLog is supported by the CVC Planet & People Grant.
