Webinar – Nordic Climate Forum for Construction 2022

Date:Thursday, 08 September, 2022 Time:12:00 - 15:00

Welcome to a webinar about the Nordic approach on reducing the building sector’s climate impact, and external factors that help to shape it.

Learn about the policy development of the regulations of CO2-reduction in buildings worldwide, in the EU and especially in the Nordic countries, how to practically use BIM to report CO2-emissions from materials and listen to the presentations of the two Nordic programmes Nordic Sustainable Construction and Nordic Networks for Circular Construction.

The Nordic ministers decided in 2018 that harmonization of building regulation should be strengthened. This led to the first Nordic Climate forum for Construction in 2019. The forum became the starting point of an effort towards Nordic harmonization for low carbon emissions from construction.

The climate forum is a yearly event for discussions with policymakers and stakeholders from industry, academia, and the finance sector.

The event will be held in English.
