Light + Building 2024: Reorientation for the building sector en route to greater sustainability
From old buildings in need of modernisation to energy-intensive office buildings, there is much to do in the building sector en route to greater climate neutrality. In Germany, this sector accounts for around 30 percent of CO2 emissions. For many years, however, the building sector has failed to reach the CO2 reduction targets set by the German government. Around 2,200 exhibitors are ready to present their innovative technologies at Light + Building in Frankfurt am Main from 3 to 8 March 2024.
