IN COLLABORATION WITH SMART CITY SWEDEN
With the constant expansion of our cities, the building industry is today responsible for 39 per cent of all carbon emissions in the world, according to a report by WorldGBC. Increasing and developing wooden construction would lower the carbon footprint drastically.
During the “Bold buildings” event on the 2nd and 3rd of November hosted by Smart City Sweden you will be able to assist when experts, organizations and companies discuss the wood building industry from all perspectives.
A prompt example of a city that has used wood construction to become a more sustainable society is Växjö, a small town in the south of Sweden. Växjö is ranked as Europe’s greenest city after winning the Green Leaf Award in 2018. An initiative to support glass and wood construction called “Smart housing Småland” was launched and is continuously developing timber and glass as building material. This project has resulted in the fact that today Vöxjö builds half of it’s new constructions in timber.
During the Smart City Sweden event representatives from the Växjö municipality will participate, among other experts on timber and wooden construction.
