24.03.12

The European Forum on Eco-Innovation that will take place on 25 and 26 April in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

The 12th Forum will be dedicated to ˇScaling-up sustainable construction Through value chain innovation˘. This forum will examine: what kind of added value eco-innovation can bring to the construction sector; how eco-innovation can transform the industry's supply chain; how to communicate these benefits to public authorities, construction professionals and building owners; a review of the opportunities and challenges as part of a sustainable construction value chain.

It will aim to answer the following questions: Who should be the main stakeholders to push forward and implement existing solutions? With so many players, who should address the sustainable construction issue in a coherent and systemic manner? Who can take the lead? Moreover, how can the construction industry face up to the current crisis which may prevent the implementation of new technologies or construction, certifications and standards?

This forum is jointly organised by the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment and the European Commission, Directorate-General for the Environment. It will gather key players from business, academia, finance, policy and green groups.

Please note that attendance at the Forum is upon registration only and that the European Commission does not reimburse any expenses. For the programme, more information and to register, please click here.
