The assignment on climate declaration for new buildings

Boverket has been assigned by the Swedish government to facilitate the introduction of regulations on climate declarations for new buildings.

The Swedish parliament has decided to introduce a requirement for the developer to prepare and submit a climate declaration for the construction of a new building from the 1st of January, 2022. The purpose of the new requirement is to reduce the climate impact of the construction of new buildings.

The construction and real estate sector accounts for a significant part of today’s environmental and climate impact.

The assignment to Boverket consists of the following parts.

  • Develop an open database with relevant climate data that can be used to calculate the climate impact of buildings from a life cycle perspective (the climate database was launched 1 of March for a test period. 
  • Develop a climate declaration register for buildings that can be used when the requirement for a climate declaration of buildings enters into force (the plan is for it to be in place by January 2022).
  • Develop information and guidance material (takes place continuously throughout the project and beyond).
  • Develop a plan for the continued development of the climate declaration of buildings to include the entire life cycle as well as limit values for climate impact (the report "Regulation on climate declarations for buildings, proposal for a roadmap and limit values" was submitted to the Swedish Government in June 2020, you can find the report in "Related information").

The development of the open climate database shall be carried out in collaboration with the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency and the Swedish Transport Administration.

Boverket is also drafting regulations (provision) on climate declaration for the construction of new buildings.
