The Partners for International Business (PIB) cluster 'Circular Neighborhood California-Netherlands' is going to help the US state of California with sustainable building. The PIB consortium consists of 10 companies with expertise in Circular Neighborhood Development. They signed a covenant with the Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland (RVO) on 4 July.
California is looking for sustainable solutions for new construction and renovation of buildings and neighborhoods. This offers opportunities for Dutch companies in sustainable construction.
The American state is looking for solutions to achieve its climate targets in 2045. To do this, they must reduce CO2 emissions and make cities more sustainable. In the coming years, California will therefore be setting up sustainable new buildings and renovating existing buildings along the entire west coast of the US.
The Dutch construction sector offers many solutions for making homes and neighborhoods more sustainable. Think of innovative and circular solutions for:
infrastructure in neighborhoods;
water storage and water reuse;
extraction of nutrients from wastewater;
urban scans to explore opportunities for the reuse of local materials.
The organization of the consortium is in the hands of Green Wave.
The participating companies are Space&Matter, Growy, Serendipity, Versus, Hitec Road,
Wavin (Metropolder), Blade Made (Newton Brown Urban Design), Moss in Amsterdam, Hydraloop, and Rebel Group.
