Reducing Carbon Footprint trough sustainable renovation and innovation

Onderzoeksoutput: Bijdrage aan tijdschriftA4: Artikel in een tijdschrift niet inbegrepen in A1, A2 of A3

Several botanical gardens have historical buildings and glasshouses. The combination of these
old buildings and glasshouses results in a high energy need and a large carbon footprint. The
climate crisis urges a drastic change in how we heat our buildings to become climate neutral by
2050. Meise Botanic Garden is developing an energy master plan combining sustainable
renovation with innovative heating technologies. It aims at lowering its carbon footprint by 65%
in the next few years. In parallel Meise Botanic Garden promotes sustainability through its
educational programmes and the WOODLab.
