Market Dialogue – City Industry Dialogue for Clean & Healthy Construction

9 October 2019
København, Denmark
Kulturhuset Islands Brygge, Islands Brygge 18, 2300 København

The session will be a range of panels to discuss clean construction focusing on zero emission building materials and zero emission non-road mobile machineries. The panels will be followed up with structured networking to facilitate a dialogue among the participants.

The expected growth of urban population will drastically exacerbate the need for buildings and infrastructure, already contributing close to 40% of global emissions. The built environment value chain has a vital role to play in responding to the climate urgency we are facing. We need to learn new ways of working and apply a variety of methods and innovation – and we need to do it together, at the right pace and scale.

The market dialogue will provide an opportunity for buyers and suppliers to understand and directly discuss their respective procurement plans for clean construction (materials and machineries) in the short- and long term, maintaining the scope presented in the master class on materials and machinery. There will be time to network and set up 1:1 meetings to discuss specific urban development plans.

StratKIT Baltic Sea Region Conference

Today, there are lots of pressures for more sustainable food systems as a result of dietary changes, growing
environmental awareness and an overall demand for healthier food. Public procurement and catering services
can serve as trailblazers to respond to these pressures. These issues are addressed in a Baltic Sea Region project
StratKIT (2019-2021) which is aiming to pool public actors’ co-learning and co-innovation resources for
intensified policy implementation in terms of circular economy and climate neutrality in Finland, Estonia,
Poland, Germany, Denmark and Russia. The project aims at developing the BSR dynamic sustainability model to
signify the efforts by public procurement and catering services towards increased sustainability. The project
discusses the relative merits and challenges of the practices, developments and initiatives in terms of the
sustainability conditions for nutrition on the one hand, and environment and economy of the food system, on
the other.

The two-day StratKIT Baltic Sea Region Stakeholder Round Table Event is a first international event in the
StratKIT project that aims to bring together public procurers, catering service providers, public authorities,
suppliers, customers and other stakeholders from different countries to co-learn about the current situation
and to co-develop innovative strategies for the future! You are welcome to join and learn about new
developments and to offer input shaping Public Catering Services towards sustainability in the Baltic Sea Region.
