We'll see you at The Future of 

Construction 2025

On September 5th, 2023, we gathered the building and construction industry for the third time at the Future of Construction conference.  

This time the conference was held at Lokomotivværkstedet in Copenhagen, where more than 600 decision-makers and specialists attended and joined forces to push the green transition of construction forward. The day included inspiring presentations, panel debates with industry stakeholders, and our partners showcased the latest electric and battery-powered machines.

"It was great to see so many people united around the green agenda in the industry. In the future, we need to share our knowledge even more across the industry, be inspired by each other and discuss which opportunities we have, to build and construct smarter in order to protect the climate," says Dan O. Vorsholt, Vice Chairman of GSV's Board of Directors.

At Future of Construction, we focused on the fact that all links in the value chain bear a responsibility in accelerating the green transition towards an emission-free world. The conference discussed important topics like digitalization, climate change, ESG, circular economy and new CO2 requirements, all of which are currently on the agenda of the green transition in the construction industry.

"Digitalization is important when we talk about the green transition. It is crucial for most companies to have an overview of their CO2 emissions, and we need to know our environmental data when we are constructing. At GSV, we have developed digital tools that create transparency about CO2 consumption when the machines are running on the sites. This is of utmost importance if we are to make a difference," Dan O. Vorsholt continues.

The Danish construction industry is recognized for being aware of its responsibility in developing a more sustainable Denmark of the future. More than 30 percent of CO2 emissions in Denmark come from the building and construction industry. Which is why it's important that we make the right decisions and stand together in the industry, and we're doing it again at the Future of Construction conference in 2025.
