Green Build & Energy Efficiency Delegation New York 2022

THE CONFEDERATION OF DANISH INDUSTRY is joining forces with Danish Cleantech Hub in New York to organize a three-day business delegation focusing on the sectors of buildings and energy efficiency from the 25-27 January 2022.


New York is not only the most populous state in America with over 8 million inhabitants, but it is also seen as one of the most progressive American states when it comes to accelerating green growth. This is further highlighted by the state’s ambitious goals to reduce its CO2 emissions by 100 percent by 2050, to lower its CO2 emissions from buildings with 35 percent by 2025, and also by its massive investments of $104.1 billion into the green transition of New York.


Infrastructure is also on New York’s green agenda. In fact, it is estimated that by 2050, 8,000-30,000 new buildings are to be built and up to 70,000 buildings are going to be replaced. It is also estimated that 14,500 building have already been selected for retrofitting. In this process, green solutions and innovative products are vital. With the high quality of Danish expertise within this field, the interest for Danish solutions and products to enhance the energy efficiency within New York buildings is in high demand.


The Green Build & Energy Efficiency Delegation to New York 2022 is your chance to meet key stakeholders and tap into opportunities regarding the buildings and green solutions for energy efficiency. In accordance with the SDG7, SDG11 and SDG17 this delegation works towards collaborating for a more sustainable and a greener New York. By participating in the three-delegation you will be able to attend round table meetings, seminars, workshops, site-visits, bilateral meetings and networking activities.
