Business Finland’s Low carbon built environment program is organizing a trade mission to Madrid. The purpose of this trade mission is to identify business collaboration opportunities for Finnish companies and get direct contacts in the Spanish market. During this two-days trade mission, Business Finland will organize tailored B2B meetings, networking event, and a visit to premises of local stakeholders.

Sustainability is a growing priority in the Spanish building sector, due to the current economic situation, the energy crisis, and the environmental objective of the Government. Even if slowly booming, the market for sustainable solutions and the awareness about the environmental impact of the sector will increase in the coming years. The use of the EU's Recovery Plan funds will emphasize the sustainable approach in the building sector in Spain, for both public procurement and industries applying for loans and grants. International investors are demanding sustainable products and some business segments, like non-residential building or the high-end market, are aware of the impact in the lifecycle of the assets.

Solutions wanted in the Spanish market include

  • The use of wood, timber and recycled and reusable materials
  • Industrialization and modular construction
  • Digitization and automatization of the building processes
  • IT solutions for operation and maintenance
  • Traceability of materials and waste
  • Bioclimatic architecture or projects that will be integrated in the urban/rural environment

Preliminary agenda

28th March from 16.00–19.00: B2B Meetings + Networking at the Ambassador’s residence;
