Webinar: Green Buildings in China with Swiss Expertise

China's building sector is the biggest in the world, and is keen to work towards reaching global climate targets. Recognizing this, China is now seeking Swiss expertise in green construction. Learn how your company can be part of this important new opportunity.

Green Buildings China

Today, the global construction industry is responsible for nearly 40% of the world’s energy-related CO2 emissions. Although zero energy construction in China is growing, there is huge potential for improvement in this area. 

As a recognised world leader in energy efficient construction, Switzerland is now the key partner in a new Chinese project to promote green building. Our panel of experts provide insights into the growing demand for Swiss expertise in the region, and share best practice tips and success stories in the market.
