RAU’s sustainable entrepreneurship stems from a specific attitude towards the world. Working and living in the constant awareness that any action ultimately produces significant effects in the world at large: ecological, economic and social. This way of working creates healthy, energy-producing buildings that adopt a people-oriented approach and enhance awareness of our planet. This is what RAU calls “oneplanetarchitecture.”
