The Green Happy Hour aims to unite stakeholders in the building industry to work towards sustainable design and net zero carbon emission goals. By fostering collaboration between green material suppliers, transportation, finance, and tech service providers, the initiative encourages participants to think creatively and to integrate their efforts for the good of the environment. This holistic approach facilitates the pursuit of innovative design solutions and strengthens our joint commitment to a sustainable future.
During this event, Jonathan Horsfall, Director APAC, will discuss Kvadrat’s commitment to the Paris Agreement, to meeting SBTi (Science Based Targets Initiative) and the approach his company has taken to tackling climate change by virtue of both its products and its company policies. The discussion will focus on the steps taken to drive the business towards Net Zero and our common commitment to lower-emission buildings – which is essential for meeting the decarbonization goals set out in the Paris Agreement.
