Brussels is considered a pioneer in sustainable construction and increasingly also in circular construction thanks to the many regional initiatives in this area. For more than a decade now, the Brussels construction sector has been able to respond brilliantly to the self-imposed ambitious standards, which became an inspiration for New York to follow. Passive house standard mandatory in Brussels since 2015 for all new buildings. In New York, the equal ambitious Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act requires New York to reduce economy-wide greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent by 2030 and 85 percent by 2050 from 1990 levels. It is the perfect opportunity for Belgian companies to showcase their knowledge and share their experience on building exemplary buildings with New York architects and real estate developers. This conference will be followed by a networking session. Refreshments will be provided.
