Construction21 is a collaborative platform and information portal for sustainable construction and city professionals. It has been designed to help develop new ways of building and renovating, thus accelerating the transition to a green building economy. Launched in six countries in March 2012 by 9 European partners, it aims to cover 50 countries worldwide by 2020.
WeCo met Construction21 because of its involvement in the French Sustainable Cities Institute, of which we are a member of the Board of Directors, the only start-up in the business section with 7 French listed companies.
At a ceremony attended by more than 200 industry professionals – candidates, partners, jurors and journalists – the French winners of the 2018 Green Solutions Awards were announced, including WeCo for its ecological public flush toilets – are also qualified for the international final.
The winners will be announced on December 6 at the University of Katowice in Poland, COP24 (UN Climate conference) Buildings Day. Moreover, WeCo is offered with this recognition a pitch in Pollutech where it will exhibit at Hall 4 in the village of the starts ups from November 28 to 30th, 2018 in Lyon.
With this award, WeCo receives the special mention of the jury in the sustainable infrastructure category, giving it visibility through the Construction21 platform in France and around the world with more than 1.5 million views and hopes to convince the international jury to the UN Climate conference in Poland early December.
