'Delivering net zero carbon buildings for all' - BUILD UPON European Leaders’ Summit

03 12 2019
 Les Ateliers du Tanneurs, Rue des Tanneurs 60A, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgium   03/12 - 04/12/2019

The recent UN Climate Action Summit made it clear - net zero carbon emissions by 2050 is the only goal that counts. For Europe, delivering a new Green Deal for its citizens will mean cities and companies putting net zero carbon buildings and massive building renovation programmes at the heart of their climate action plans. In response the partners of the BUILD UPON2 project - the European Green Building Council network, Buildings Performance Institute Europe and Climate Alliance - are convening 150 senior private and public sector leaders from across Europe at an inspiring and practical summit on 3-4 December. We want to demonstrate that Europe has the will and solutions to lead the world towards delivering net zero carbon buildings and a better quality of life for all.

Join us for this critical event in the European and global building sector calendar and to enjoy networking with Europe's foremost low carbon building leaders.

Confirmed senior speakers include private and public sector leaders from:

  • Redevco

  • ING Real Estate Finance

  • Lidl Sweden


  • Skanska

  • Saint-Gobain

  • E.ON

  • European Covenant of Mayors

  • Government of Spain

  • Municipality of Padova

  • Government of Croatia

  • European Bank for Reconstruction & Development

  • And many more!
