China accounts for almost 42% of all building worldwide. Among them are a high proportion of offices, shops and hotels. Development is strong in all major cities, but particularly in China’s second tier cities. Two billion square meters of new buildings will be constructed annually. However, more than 40% of China’s total energy consumption is directly or indirectly connected to construction and almost 1/3 of water consumption is allotted to the building area. Each m2 of building space consumes four times more energy as compared to European averages. The Chinese government has recognized the potential of Green Building on the market and promotes energy-saving, resource-efficient and sustainable building projects as per its five-year plans.

This offers great potential for European SMEs in this sector, from engineers and architects to real estate consulting, building material suppliers and providers of innovative technical solutions. Join this webinar and learn:
