In this contribution the next-to-leading (NLO) QCD corrections to Higgs boson pair production are discussed. A brief sketch of the calculation is given. The differential cross section as a function of the invariant Higgs pair mass and the total hadronic cross section are presented. Furthermore, the uncertainties not only from the renormalisation and factorisation scales but also the uncertainties due to the scheme-and-scale choice of the top mass are shown. In addition, the effects of varying the Higgs self-coupling strength on the cross section are investigated.
