Published by Sylvain Bosquet

On March 15, Construction21 launched the 5th edition of the Green Solutions Awards at MIPIM in Cannes, France. This international competition for sustainable buildings, districts and infrastructures is supported by ADEME and the Global Alliance for Buildings & Construction. It aims to broadly disseminate innovation in order to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable world. The winners will be announced in Bonn, Germany, in November, during the Conference of the Parties on climate change (COP23).

118 buildings, 11 districts and 21 infrastructures in the competition

Many professionals played the game and submitted their realisations for the contest 2017: 118 buildings, 11 eco-districts and 21 infrastructures are competing. At the international level, three categories attracted a significant number of candidates: Energy & Temperate Climates (44 case studies), Low carbon (29) and Health & Comfort (26).

Exemplary realisations throughout the world

After a fruitful year in 2016 counting no less than 19 participating countries, the international mobilisation is confirmed this year. The candidates from countries covered by the Construction21 network in Europe, North Africa and China, are the majority. However, competitors from the United States, Brazil, Tanzania, United Arab Emirates, Croatia, Austria or Senegal are to be counted with.

Hit your “likes” to support your favorites

Grand Prizes and thematic awards will be determined by a carefully selected group of experts, while the public is invited to vote for their favorite candidates. Starting June 20, and all summer long, they can “like” their favorite case studies – buildings, districts, infrastructures – and share their selection on social media.
