The European Rental Association (ERA) will hold an online conference on sustainability in construction and the circular economy on 31 March 2021, from 10:00 to 11:45 CET.

ERA’s online sustainability event will be on 31 March, 2021.

The event - Building a sustainable future: transitioning towards a circular and low-carbon construction sector - will ask how a low-carbon construction sector can contribute to Europe’s green recovery; where the biggest opportunities are for lowering emissions; and how the sector can encourage more circular practices.

  • Michel Petitjean, Secretary General, European Rental Association (ERA).
  • Pernille Weiss, Member of the European parliament (MEP).

KHL Group’s Murray Pollok will moderate the supply chain session, while ERA’s Carole Bachmann will chair the EU policy discussion.

The event will also feature a video on the ERA Equipment CO2 Calculator, the recently launched and free-to-use online tool to enable equipment users and owners to make sustainable choices when using construction equipment.
