ecobuild.brussels, the sustainable construction and renovation cluster
Do you work in the construction and renovation sector in Brussels? Do you want to build or have something built differently and more sustainably? Use materials and processes which are respectful of the environment? With partners who share the same values? Discover our ecobuild.brussels cluster, the network for sustainable construction and renovation professionals in the Brussels-Capital Region!
Why choose a sustainable construction and renovation cluster?
The ecobuild.brussels cluster was launched in November 2006 by the Brussels-Capital Region to reach the following objectives:
- make Brussels a low-carbon city by 2050
- build 100% passive buildings as legally required since 2015 in the Brussels-Capital Region
With more than 200 members and 30 partners, ecobuild.brussels brings the entire sustainable construction and renovation value chain together to enable synergies and the implementation of ambitious projects.
The cluster set itself four major objectives:
- networking: bring the players of the construction sector together to promote collaborations and catalyse new public and private opportunities
- promote: showcase members and the sector to promote them and guide them towards the cluster’s partners to help them succeed, fulfil their needs and face difficulties
- inspire: stay up to date with innovative practices and share them with the players to inspire them to create new sustainable business models
- guide: relay companies’ requests to the appropriate players and support their development
