Nordic Working Group for Circular Economy (NCE), together with Nordic collaborators, welcomes you to a webinar exploring the possibilities for reuse and recycling in the construction industry. The Nordic Council of Ministers has over several years gathered knowledge in the field through Vision Projects and working groups.

At the webinar, Helle Redder Momsen from Nordic Sustainable Construction will present Nordic collaborations on minimising climate and environmental impact from the construction sector.
