Circular Economy in the Buildings Sector

5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Greentown Labs, Somerville, MA

Join Greentown Labs to celebrate the kickoff of Go Build 2023, a Greentown Go startup-corporate partnerships accelerator program focused on advancing circularity and decarbonization in the built environment, in partnership with Saint-Gobain.

At this event, attendees will hear lightning pitches from startup finalists in the buildings industry with innovations that extend product life cycles, further develop raw materials, revalorize waste, or act as other enabling technologies. 

Innovation in the buildings sector is critical to achieving decarbonization. Buildings are responsible for 39 percent of CO2 emissions globally, with a staggering 11 percent of global emissions coming from the construction of buildings and manufacturing of building materials. To change this, we need innovations that reinvent how buildings and their materials are planned, built, sourced, and managed.
