With the EU taxonomy and New European Bauhaus setting a strong precedent, there is no better time to push climate neutrality to the forefront of design. Climate Neutral Design Talks brings together protagonists from finance, architecture and engineering to discuss the key challenges ahead for business and politics to steer towards climate neutrality. How will the EU taxonomy contribute? How can certifications clarify and support? What exactly is needed to set goals, find means and create drivers?

In the spirit of New European Bauhaus, it will also be discussed how new ways of practice and design contributes to climate neutrality. How can we maximise the use of existing buildings and structures? How do we adopt low emission materials and construction techniques, or minimise waste? How can we take a circular approach to existing materials? How do we design for low operational energy, or generate renewable energy?

In order for society to achieve global and national goals, it’s vital to work towards the same objectives and strengthen collaboration both within and between industries and across national borders.
