Event Description

The European Rental Association (ERA) has the pleasure to invite you to its online event 'Building a sustainable future  Transitioning towards a circular and low-carbon construction sector' on 31 March 2021, from 10:00 to 11:45 CET.

Ahead of the EU’s Strategy on Sustainable Built Environment, it is imperative that the construction sector promotes low carbon business models and circular practices, and the event will focus on the following topics:

·    How can a circular, low-carbon construction sector contribute to Europe’s green recovery?

·    What are the low hanging fruit for lowering emissions in the sector?

·    How can the sector encourage more circular practices?

The first panel, with MEP Pernille WeissPhilippe Moseley (DG GROW) and Audrey Nugent (World Green Building Council), will address the policy aspects of construction as a priority sector for promoting circular principles and reducing emissions.

The second panel, with representatives from the construction sector and supply chain across Europe, including Sue Arundale (FIEC), Douglas McLuckie (Sunbelt Rentals), Michel Petitjean (ERA) and a construction equipment manufacturer, and moderated by Murray Pollock (KHL), will bring the industry perspective on transitioning towards a circular and low-carbon construction sector.

The event will also feature a video presentation of the ERA Equipment CO2 Calculator, an independent and free-to-use online tool to enable equipment stakeholders to make more sustainable choices when using construction equipment.
