The GREEN source of reference for products and sustainable building
In the heart of the exhibition area dedicated to SAIE Innovation - towards zero impact – a catching-eye timber shell, the ONGREENING NEST, was the place to join the debate on green building projects and sustainable products.
Ongreening.com is the international web portal devoted to Green Building and sustainable building materials.
Ongreening’s mission is to accelerate the dissemination of green best practices across the whole sector, helping building professionals and contractors spreading their skills and projects worldwide. Thanks to the innovative algorithm ProductMAP, Ongreening assists building product manufacturers in enhancing the value of products and technologies in the context of the green building, while unveiling new market opportunities both nationally and globally. The impressive novel technology takes into account over 44 international rating systems and 11,000 environmental-based evaluation criteria.
Ongreening is the world’s first web platform designed to provide building professionals with news and updates on the most relevant green building rating systems, such as LEED, BREEAM, WELL, ESTIDAMA, GREEN STAR, HK BEAM PLUS, etc.
Over 27,000 top professionals use Ongreening.com: Arup, Renzo Piano Building Workshop, Gehry Partners, Mecanoo, Zaha Hadid Architects, Aecom, Haworth Tompkins, UNStudio, Snohetta, Ramboll and many others are among the platform’s daily users.
Thanks to the agreement SAIE-H2O-EDILIO-ONGREENING, Ongreening was at SAIE ONGREENING NEST, the meeting place of the green international community, and provided the mapping of innovative products selected by the Jury of "SAIE Innovation - towards zero impact" by publishing on the portal international card describing their levels of sustainability.
In the context of the “SAIE Innovation – towards zero impact”, a novel initiative recently launched by SAIE in collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Environment, Ongreening evaluated the environmental impact of the shortlisted building products and technologies, by using ProductMAP. For each product, Ongreening created a dedicated web page to help manufacturers communicate effectively product’s sustainability aspects and attributes to professionals and specifiers.
In occasion of the SAIE 2016, within the exhibition arena in Centro Servizi dedicated to the SAIE INNOVATION, Ongreening showcased the ONGREENING NEST, an extraordinary 3D-structure which will represent a meeting place for the international green building community: inspiring presentations, talks with green building industry leaders and building product manufacturers, best practices and new thinking will be brought together by Ongreening.
The green building global market with over 3 billion of square meters represents a unmissable business opportunity for the entire industry. The latter was part of the debate at the Ongreening NEST on October 19-22.
