Nordic webinar: How can we halve the carbon emissions from construction?

Globally the building and real estate sector is responsible for 40% of the CO2 emissions. A big part of this comes from the production and use of building materials. The good news is that we have the technology to cut these emissions by half, and the industry is ready to deliver with cutting edge solutions.

The Green Building Councils in the Nordic countries work closely together with the industry and municipalities, and their national governments. In this webinar we show Nordic examples on how you can order and build a low carbon building, and we also highlight what kind of regulations that are needed to meet our carbon goals.

This is the second webinar from the collaboration between the Nordic Green Building Councils held the 27th of May 2021.
