Last week, Ecoboards signed the Green Deal for biobased building with over 20 parties active in the building industry in the Netherlands and abroad. Representing the Dutch Government were Ministers of Parliament Kamp and Mansveld of the Ministries of Economy, Infrastructure and Environment, and the Ministry of Internal Affairs (Housing and Rijkswaterstaat).

The goal of this Deal is to create a level playing field for biobased materials, products and concepts. This will be done by making an appropriate place for them in building- and environmental regulation, improving the knowledge base and exchange, and developing a joint communication- and marketing strategy.

Of course, Ecoboards is delighted to be part of this movement, and would like to invite everyone to jump on the environmental bandwagon.
