The construction business is a sector with an extensive negative impact on the climate. Now, new innovations in technology and business models contribute to reducing the construction business' environmental impact. Some examples are robots building houses, sensors adapting the energy consumption based on the presence of people in houses, or green financing.

Welcome to join an interesting online conference held in Swedish with a theme that has an impact on most of us.
