“It was very worthwhile and we’re simply thrilled! Living Lab has been vital in connecting us with suppliers who can help us transition to fossil-free construction. We’re interested in pursuing further discussions with all of the suppliers we met during the day,” says Anders Hall from the Municipal Administration Office, City of Gothenburg.
Anders Hall is a project manager working with Gothenburg’s new fossil-free preschool, Hoppet. Construction will get underway this fall. It’s a project that will set a new standard and serve as a model for future construction projects in Gothenburg. It’s also a fundamental component for achieving the City’s targets for sustainable and fair levels of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
The aim of Living Lab Event was to acquaint various companies and organizations in, for example the construction and property sector with new, innovative solutions for fossil-free construction. There were around 150 participants from 8 countries, China among them, who networked and made important new business contacts. It is expected that many will lead to solid new deals.
