Posted on Thursday 01 June, 2023

From 27 to 29 June 2023, the World Green Infrastructure Congress will take place in Berlin ánd online. It is the largest congress on green buildings that has ever been held in Europe to date and is organized by the German Bundesverband Gebäudegrün (BuGG). During this 3-day event, all aspects of the 'green building' are discussed, such as green roofs, living walls and interior greenery. The first two days consist of a trade conference, combined with an exhibition floor. The 50 exhibiting companies also offer their information in an online event. On the third day of the congress there is the opportunity to take part in excursions to remarkable green projects in Berlin. The opening speech of the congress will be given by the German Federal Minister for the Built Environment Klara Geywitz, which already shows how important this congress is within the construction industry. Of course, Sempergreen cannot be missed here, and the market leader will demonstrate its sustainable green solutions for roof, facade and ground cover on the exhibition floor in stand 40.
