Business Finland’s Low carbon built environment program is organizing a trade mission to Japan. The purpose of this trade mission is to identify business collaboration opportunities for Finnish companies and get direct contacts in the Japanese market. During this three-days trade mission, Business Finland will organize B2B meetings, networking event, site visit and a visit to Construction & Survey Productivity Improvement EXPO (CSPI expo) that showcases cutting-edge technology of the next generation in one place. B2B meetings will be tailored for each participant by our consultant partner, enabling real business talks.
The Japanese construction market was worth EUR 607bn in 2021, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 0.7% between 2016 and 2021. The non-residential construction segment was the industry’s highest in 2021, with a value of EUR 434.6bn, representing 71.5% of the industry total. The non-residential sector remains robust as investment in public infrastructure and confidence in the rebound of demand remain high. Future investments are expected in renewable energy, telecommunications, and manufacturing systems.
Japan’s strategy to cut emission rates of both operational and embodied carbon is largely focused on improving energy performance in the residential/commercial sector through the usage of timber and low-carbon building materials. The biggest area of opportunity lies in the sustainability sector, which is still relatively untapped but one that will expand in line with the government’s sustainability goals.
