CREATING NEW BUSINESS FROM

HEALTHIER & CIRCULAR

CARBON POSITIVE

BUILDINGS

 

It is time to focus on the carbon footprint of construction and building materials, which no actor can successfully do alone. VTT and Tampere University are gathering together Finnish companies and other organizations into a new carbon-neutral construction ecosystem called Build4Clima. Our goal is a carbon neutral and healthy building by focusing on the material use and design of the building spanning its whole life cycle.

Achieving true carbon neutrality in the construction industry is challenging. We also need solutions for buildings to capture carbon during their life cycle. This requires a radically new wide-range network co-operation.

To meet the material challenge, Build4Clima ecosystem maps the expertise and actors in the field. Build4Clima ecosystem brings together players from different industries to create new solutions and business models for the construction industry. We map products and concepts that implement circular economy, healthy living environment, carbon-neutral construction processes and carbon capturing in buildings.
