As a concrete implementation measure under the Bavarian Presidency 2017, a study of the overall environmental effects and the energy balance of Alpine construction materials was commissioned. The outcome of the study was presented during the international cooperation forum on “Sustainable and energy efficient construction in the Alpine Area” on 25th October 2017, in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The symposium contributed to the Action Group 9 goal to champion “Greening the Alpine infrastructure / building sector”, which supports actions promoting more sustainable and energy-efficient building stock. The forum also included keynotes and input about sustainable construction, funding schemes for sustainable and energy efficient construction in the Alps, grey energy assessment and recycling processes in the Alpine Area.
