Event description

Description

Come and connect up and down the supply chain to optimise sustainable procurement opportunities.

Building materials and products companies are striving to improve the environmental performance of their products, and they are communicating to the market using EPD’s; but so what, to what end, who is really taking note, is it really making a difference? Come and find out.

Developers are describing their aspirations and needs in strategies, and contractors are asking for material performance requirements in their tenders, but is it following through into the final building specification?
