More than 700 delegates from all over the world were gathered at Sustainable Building 2000 in Maastricht in October 2000. With the great interest shown at this conference, we expect a significant increase in participation when Norway will host Sustainable Building 2002 (SB'02) in Oslo, September 2002.


EcoBuild, a national programme for increased Eco-efficiency in the Norwegian Construction and Real Estate Industry, is looking forward to meet all relevant international networks and organisations at the World Congress "Sustainable Building 2002".

"Sustainable Building 2002" was assigned to EcoBuild in Maastricht Oct. 2000    


Sustainable Building 2002 (SB'02) will pursue the results from the conferences "Buildings and the Environment" in Paris -97, "Green Building Challenge" in Vancouver -98 and "Sustainable Building" in Maastricht -00 by inspiring the entire construction and real estate industry of the world to create knowledge for use, and apply it in practise.

Authorities all over the world are increasingly focusing on the building and real estate sector as the "40 % industry" in relation to the environment:
