Get ready for the decade of action

The European Union has a once-in-a-generation opportunity to lead the race to net zero. As policymakers enact ambitious decarbonisation targets, EU cleantech innovators are paving the way for a new climate and industrial leadership.

To seize this leadership, the EU must learn to scale up its clean technologies and create the conditions for wide adoption and a just transition.
Our new series of events is bridging the gap between the innovation and policy worlds. Each quarter, cleantech CEOs and investors share the stage with leading policymakers to make the most of the decade of action.

Value Chain Focus: the path to a net zero building stock

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Suspendisse varius enim in eros elementum tristique. Duis cursus, mi quis viverra ornare, eros dolor interdum nulla.

This summit zooms in on buildings and construction materials, and in particular, what is needed to decarbonise the EU’s building stock. From energy conscious design to renovation strategies to energy efficiency retrofits, how can we lock in low carbon materials, reduce energy costs for inhabitants and direct demolition waste back into the value chain, and how should these interventions be financed?
