Construction professionals, investors, financial and political institutions, NGOs, academics, students... Faced with ever-increasing global challenges, all the construction industry’s stakeholders must rally and work together to preserve our planet, while providing everyone with comfortable, decent housing. To bring this conviction to life, and in conjunction with Climate Week NYC, Saint-Gobain's Sustainable Construction Observatory will host a Sustainable Construction Talk in New York City on September 20th dedicated to “Towards sustainable construction for all: building a comprehensive response to climate change”. This event will gather leading personalities from a wide range of fields to discuss the best ways to accelerate sustainable construction.


2 major questions will be addressed during our debates:


#1 How can the construction industry join forces and lead the way to net zero?


#2 How can sustainable construction ensure climate resilience for all?


Event is now fully booked.
