Submitted by Lowri Brown on 01 November 2013

During the 6th edition of the Bativert Forum in Casablanca, the opening of the first extra European Construction21 platform was announced with the launch of Construction21 Morocco. The Moroccan cluster EMC becomes the first African chapter of the international network dedicated to the environmental transition in the building sector.

This newly created platform will offer not only a place for information and exchanges to the Moroccan professionals on sustainable construction, but also a tool for promotion of innovation on an international scale. The Construction21 network already counts 10 platforms and aims to deploy over 50 countries by 2020, especially in the Maghreb region and in Africa, countries in which Moroccan companies have a growing influence.

The Cluster EMC (Energy Efficiency of Construction Materials), has been selected by Construction21 to manage the Moroccan platform. The cluster is a not-for-profit association, created in the end of 2013 under the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Digital Economy. Among its members are public and private partners such as: Orobrique, Veritas Morocco, the Archimédia group, Calnicor Morocco, Lafarge, Multicerame, Al Omrane and the University Hassan Ier.
