The Green Construction Board is gearing up for Ecobuild 2013!  Come along and visit our stand to find out more about what we do and try out our interactive tools that display the business case for green construction. 

That’s not all. Be sure to participate in one of our events in the Big Tent, located right next to our stand. There’ll be presentations, debates and panel discussions with some of our leading members. 

Tuesday will see the launch of the Low Carbon Routemap by Paul Morrell in the EcoBuild Arena. You’ll be able to explore the Routemap at our stand throughout the three days – plotting your own course to reducing carbon emissions by 2050. And on Wednesday and Thursday come to the Big Tent for a demonstration from the team that developed it.

Other highlights include a discussion of how we as an industry can attract the best and brightest young talent with recent ‘NCE Graduate of the Year’, Claire Gott, and a session on how we can close the performance gap in buildings with UK Green Building Council's Paul King.

Green Construction Board Co-chairs Business Minister Michael Fallon and Mike Putnam, CEO of Skanska UK, will also hold their very own discussion with attendees. They’ll be speaking on the topic of 'Green for Growth - Reality Check', exploring where we should be investing in green infrastructure to get the maximum benefit for UK plc.

Our stand can be found at location reference N630.
