Sustainable Solutions Make us Stronger
It is our mission to help our customers develop profitable, better, and more sustainable designs and constructions in an increasingly challenging world.Our key focus areas
Designing and Making a Sustainable Future
All industries must contribute towards a more sustainable society for future generations.
For the construction industry it is vital to adopt the latest sustainable technologies and construction methodologies, as well as improving the energy efficiency for existing buildings.
The increasing global demand for natural resources and the challenges accompanying this, together with the demand for new individualized products, pose an equal substantial task for manufacturing companies.
Building resilient infrastructure and promoting sustainable industrialization while ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns does not just make common sense, but also make sense from a business point of view. Working efficiently and saving on resources is a goal for all of us - regardless of industry.
"Tackling global challenges like climate change and the growing demand for natural resources require that we all work differently, so it is therefore our key focus to ensure that our digital solutions support you in working towards a more sustainable future."
Steen Alexander, CEO, NTI Group
How Do We Support a Sustainable Future?
At NTI we are especially working with the following three areas:
Energy & Carbon
If we don’t succeed to reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions the resulting climate changes will have a significant and serious impact on our lives. Therefore, goals have been set globally on reducing our energy consumption and limiting our GHG emissions. The buildings sector followed by the manufacturing industry are big contributors when in comes to GHG emissions. The good news is that digital solutions can help us in tackling our total carbon impacts.
Helping our customers reduce the energy and carbon footprint of their own and their customer’s design and construction processes.
Growing demand for natural resources means that we need to reduce resource consumption by e.g., improving production processes, increasing recycling and reuse. Saving on resources is not only good for the environment but also makes good sense from a business point of view. Resource efficiency goes hand in hand with digitalization of more processes, which also helps in gaining more insight into what can be done.
Helping our customers improve resource efficiency to reduce their environmental impact, minimize costs and improve health & wellbeing.
Climate changes have a profound impact on the world that we live in. While we work on reducing e.g., our GHG emissions to combat climate change we also need to make sure that we are more resilient to climate changes and their effects. With an increased urbanization, we need to ensure durable infrastructure for resilient and sustainable cities. Increasing storm events and draughts require that we work and act differently when working with our infrastructure.
Helping our customers design and construct climate resilient solutions through our solutions and tools.
"For me, sustainability represents a way of life and thinking that goes beyond material things, and as a parent of two children, it feels like the most natural choice. In fact, in my daily life almost every action of mine is made with a future perspective in mind.”
Alessandro Facchini, PDM Technical Manager, NTI NKE Italy
Do You Speak "Sustainability"?
Everybody talks about it – but do we all know what it actually means? Let’s explore some of the most common key terms used when speaking of sustainability.
A colorless and odorless greenhouse gas naturally present in the Earth's atmosphere. It is produced by various natural processes and human activities such as the combustion of fossil fuels, deforestation, and industrial processes.
Refer to the release of gases into the Earth's atmosphere that contribute to the greenhouse effect, trapping heat and leading to global warming. These gases include e.g. carbon dioxide (CO2) and are primarily generated from human activities such as burning fossil fuels, industrial processes, deforestation, and agriculture.
Refers to the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions, primarily carbon dioxide (CO2), produced directly or indirectly by an individual, organization, event, or product over its life cycle.
Refers to the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions associated with the entire lifecycle of a product, system, or infrastructure project. It includes emissions from raw material extraction, manufacturing, transportation, construction, use, and eventual disposal or recycling.
This is an economic model that aims to eliminate waste and continuously reuse resources. It emphasizes the recycling, repurposing, and remanufacturing of materials to create a closed-loop system.
Refers to the effective utilization of energy resources to minimize waste and reduce energy consumption. It involves optimizing systems, processes, and equipment to achieve the same or higher output with less energy input.
"Sustainability means to me the conscious choice to live by adopting behaviors that limit or reduce the impact on the consumption of our planet's resources, preserving them for future generations."

We are an Autodesk Sustainability Partner
This means that we are comitted to helping our customers reach their sustainability goals through technology that integrates with the Autodesk platform.
"What I like about my job is that we offer our customers tools to design buildings that meet the necessary sustainability requirements with regards to circularity, energy and CO² emissions. It’s very nice to contribute on a daily basis to buildings that meet both today's legislation as future ambitions."
Chris van der Fluit, Advisor at NTI CAD & Company, the Netherlands
