Tech For Climate Action Conference – Sustainability Meets Construction

  • 15 September 2022
  • 18:00 - 21:30
  • Shanghai American Center, Shanghai

In 2021, China’s urbanization rate almost touched the 65% mark, and this number is only increasing rapidly. To put this in context, the country’s urbanization rate in 1950 was 13%. Twenty-five of the world’s largest 100 cities are also located in China.

This means only one thing – to keep up with this rapid urbanization, China has to undertake construction of infrastructure on a massive scale. And one harsh fact that cannot be overlooked – the construction industry is damaging our environment. The construction sector contributes to 23% of air pollution, 40% of drinking water pollution, and 50% of landfill wastes.

Green Initiatives is delighted to host the Tech For Climate Action Conference - Session 1, focusing on technology in the real estate space, with support from Swedish Consulate-General and The United States Consulate General.


This conference will be a great platform to connects businesses, and together learn more about tangible industry solutions to transition to low-carbon economy, innovations, technology and trends around:

  1. Construction, a necessary evil of development
  2. How can technology make construction more sustainable
  3. Green building systems modeling
  4. Operations and maintenance optimization
  5. New innovations in green building technology
