Brinja's goal is to work for a sustainable future and towards a sustainable work environment. Through Brinja's services, they work with their customers towards a circular and climate-smart society.
Brinja is dedicated to doing its part to help achieve the UN's global goals for 2030. One of the services that shows a positive impact on the climate and lowers costs is the light control service. The construction industry accounts for 17% of Sweden's total energy consumption (source Boverket), which means 17.85 TWh per year or 3,570,000 households. The construction lighting usually stands at 100% from the start of the project to the end, which generally lasts between 18-36 months. This is a major culprit from a sustainability perspective, both economically and ecologically. The effect of the light control is that construction companies can reduce their energy consumption by up to 85%.
The products are designed and produced based on a circular mindset. By constantly working on developing the devices, replacing components and serving them, they should last for 5 years. Through efficient sustainability planning and a sustainable business model where Brinja's customers rent the products/services (SaaS model), this saves the earth's resources. In order to be a competitive company for the future, it is important to dare to challenge traditional ways of working. It is even more important that you as a company want to take responsibility and dare to test new innovations to support and drive development forward.
"The SdGs are the most ambitious sustainable development agenda ever adopted by the countries of the world and are there to achieve four great things by 2030: Eliminating extreme poverty. Reducing inequalities and injustices in the world. To promote peace and justice. Solving the climate crisis. Through the SdGs, this can become a reality."

Reduce energy consumption and reduce CO2 emissions via Brinja's light control. The construction industry accounts for 17% of Sweden's total energy consumption (source Boverket), which means 17.85 TWh per year or 3,570,000 households.
