Business Model


Tourism is responsible for up to 27% of Greece annual GDP and about 60% of new constructions (Source: INSETE). The construction sector is responsible for 38% of all CO2 emissions and for 40% of worldwide energy usage, with estimations that by 2030 emissions from commercial buildings will grow by 1.8% (Source: USGBC). Through sophisticated design and engineering Swallows is creating buildings for touristic accomodation with a highly efficient life-cycle regarding sustainability, energy consumption, CO2 emissions and its environmental imprint in general.

Target


Validation of the Business Model and Creation of Prototype
