Nordic Climate Forum for Construction 2022

8.9.2022 | 12.00–15.00




Nordic Council of Ministers

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