Building a sustainable future - Transitioning towards a circular and low-carbon construction sector
The European Rental Association (ERA) invites you to attend its EU Industry Week event 'Building a sustainable future - Transitioning towards a circular and low-carbon construction sector' on 31 March, 10:00-11:45 CET (online).
Ahead of EU's Strategy on Sustainable Built Environment, it is imperative that the construction sector promotes low carbon business models and circular practices, and the event will focus on the following topics:
How can a circular, low-carbon construction sector contribute to Europe's green recovery?
What are the low hanging fruit for lowering emissions in the sector?
How can the sector encourage more circular practices?
The event will feature two panels of European policy and industry experts.
The first panel addressing the policy aspects of construction as a priority sector for promoting circular principles and reducing emissions will feature Philippe Moseley (DG GROW) and Audrey Nugent (World Green Building Council).
The second panel will bring the industry perspective on transitioning towards a circular and low-carbon construction sector. It will feature representatives from Europe's construction sector and supply chain, including Michel Petitjean (ERA), Sue Arundale (FIEC), Douglas McLuckie (Ashtead Group) and Peter Jordansson (Volvo CE).
The event will also feature a video presentation of the ERA Equipment CO2 Calculator, an independent and free-to-use online tool to enable equipment stakeholders to make more sustainable choices when using construction equipment.
