Øystein Thorup is the CEO of Avantor AS in Oslo. With Avantor, he has focused on sustainable development since they started the transformation in Nydalen in the early 90s. In order to transform this industrial area into a green and modern part of Oslo, they have always put the environmental strategy at the top of the agenda.
He’s excited about an upcoming project on Gullhaug Torg, which is Norway’s first natural ventilated office and residential complex with a revolutionary low energy solution for heating and cooling. With a Triple-Zero ambition, the aim is to demonstrate that a natural climatization of buildings can be achieved with 0kWh purchased energy.
