natureplus and the national representatives Agrodome, ASBP, Baubioswiss, EOS, IBO as well as VIBE invite you to a 10 day event series focusing on building materials that help build climate protection. The natureplus Europe Event Series 2021 will reflect on the environmental impacts of the major structural construction materials, the advantages bio-based do offer and on tools and policies that help recognise and encourage carbon sequestration.
Across six events, building experts will discuss how to reduce the environmental impacts of building materials and how to leverage their potential instead - for example by carbon sequestration. Get in touch with the innovative initative "Bauhaus der Erde" at the kick-off symposium. Here the carbon capture potential as offered by bio based materials will be the main topic. The Alliance of Sustainable Building Products will reflect on the steps made by major players in the construction products industry regarding environmental impacts by hosting a web seminar called Future Footprints. Finally a discussion among Austrian building professionals will reveal how the Austrian cement industry sees its role in the climate crisis and its contribution to solve it. Site visits and exhibitions finally demonstrate that usability, appealing design and sustainability go hand in hand in ecological building materials, while at the same time being applicable right away.
