Keeping busy with green infrastructure

 

In the Spring edition of Living Architecture Monitor (LAM), our managing director Luigi Petito, writes as head of the EU World Green Infrastructure Network. The article, covers green infrastructure and their role in the new EU Strategy on Adaptation to Climate Change and gives an overview of the relevant European policy and regulatory files which we are currently following.

The full article is available here.

The LAM magazine is a quarterly publication first published in 1998.  It features in-depth interviews with leaders in the green building movement, opinions, research, and green roof and wall project profiles. Living architecture is the integration of living, organic systems with non-living, inorganic systems in, on, or around buildings. Living architecture is an important step to reconcile people and nature in the modern built environment.

 
In January 2020 we were asked to set up and run the European Chapter of the World Green Infrastructure Network. Another exciting task to improve the quality of urban areas and help cities to reconnect with nature.

Fifteen Years Old and Going Strong!

At Business Solutions Europa, 2020 marked our fifteenth anniversary. Although the range and scope of our projects have broadened through the years, we remain committed to help our clients advocating for some of today’s most important public policy issues and contribute to a more sustainable future.

Here’s a quick recap of what we accomplished in 2020!

Energy efficiency

The work we began in the early 2000s to help our clients promote energy efficiency at every level of society continued—and even intensified—in 2020. In fact, we may safely claim to have established ourselves as one of the most knowledgeable and networked energy-efficiency consultancies in Europe.

We’re especially proud of our work to produce a multitude of highly effective briefing and advocacy notes, infographics, letters and reports. And our ability to network policy and decision makers with the business community helped stakeholders across the EU to understand the importance, impact, and urgency of promoting energy-efficiency as the most cost-effective way to reduce CO2 emissions and decarbonize the EU economy by 2050 at the latest.

In 2020, we started to work on innovative projects related to natural-based solutions such as green infrastructures to mitigate the devastating effect of climate change, improve biodiversity and improve rainwater management in our cities. Green infrastructures, and in particular green roofs and walls,  are poised to play an important role in energy-efficiency discussions for years to come. It is our commitment to this kind of topics that places us at the cutting edge of energy efficiency and sustainability matters.

Health

In addition to our energy efficiency efforts, we continued to work on projects related to health and in particular on initiatives tackling childhood obesity. We initiated several new raising awareness and educational projects to promote healthy lifestyles and address the health, social, psychological and economic impacts of childhood obesity.

Thanks to our experience with scientific dissemination and publication, in 2020 we continued also our collaboration with one of the most prominent player in the community of anaesthesiologists in Europe and globally.

We are delighted to see our global network in the field of health prevention continuously growing.

Communication

During the year, we consolidated our position as creative,  knowledgeable and reliable provider of communication services for individual organizations and associations. Our services ranged from photography for advertising and marketing purposes to website development, graphic design and branding.

So here we stand on the threshold of a new year (2021) and at the end of what has been, in every respect, a very complex year of operation. Looking ahead to the new year we will work hard not only to maintain the strength of our consultancy but to advance it. With the ongoing support of my wonderful colleagues and partners, I look forward to another year of productive work in contributing to the health and success of our clients and of the European Union.
