Festive Event: What Makes a Building Material Sustainable? - Online

 Registration is closed for this event
Join us for our end of year festive event. Pre-registration required but FREE to attend.

The Green Register is running a short and light hearted end-of-year gathering - with prizes - to celebrate our 20th anniversary and to bring a little cheer at the end of a difficult year for everyone.

We’ll be taking a look at:

  • What criteria we should use when considering if a material is sustainable
  • Why healthy building materials means a healthy planet and healthy people
  • Environmental Product Declarations (an EPD is an independently verified and registered document that communicates transparent and comparable information about the life-cycle environmental impact of products)

Three suppliers/manufacturers will then give a three minute ‘pitch’ as to why their product qualifies as sustainable with an opportunity for delegates to ‘rate’ each of the products.

The event ends with a light hearted quiz and festive cheer - please have a drink of your choice to raise your glass with us at the end of the session.
