 BLUE Day Network Event | A CALL FOR ACTION!


Thursday, November 4th, 2021 17:30 - 22:00 CEST


Dear Invitee,


You are undoubtedly aware of the importance of energy-saving measures for your corporate real estate portfolio, as well as the importance of a healthy working and living environment for those working in your buildings. Increasingly this is becoming not only a competitive advantage but also an obligation.

We are entering the next chapter of sustainability as European regulations increasingly require parties in the real estate market to allocate, report, and ultimately address climate risk. It is thus of vital importance that companies, investors, and financial institutions, along with market players in construction, end-users, and employers, develop new policies on the reduction of energy consumption and the emission of carbon dioxide, whilst incorporating the ESG-guidelines.  

In conclusion, the future is being shaped and the Blue Building Institute (BBI) wants to help you be a part of this movement!

A call for action!

On November 4, 2021, the Blue Building Institute will be organizing our first BLUE Day Network Event at Museum Voorlinden in Wassenaar, where we will help you and your company become aware and prepare for all future sustainability expectations from regulators, banks, and governments.

As ESG-policies, such as its less ‘tangible’ social aspects can be complex to establish and implement, the WELL Building Standard-certification will help you realize your social contribution. In doing so, you will create a solid foundation for shaping the social criteria of ESG-regulations and enhance your company's future performance.

Therefore, the BLUE Day Network Event offers you a unique opportunity to meet and connect with market and thought leaders from different sectors in an unparalleled, informal setting that inspires you to break out of day to day operations, address real challenges, and create a better future. Let’s commit to the change and support and inspire each other by registering for this high-quality event.


I hope to see you on the 4th of November!
