On Tuesday, 4 February, SADC welcomed fellow members of the Urban Land Institute’s Logistics Council.
The all-day event was hosted at the SADC office and covered topics such as ‘How to Build Sustainably’ and ‘Urban Logistics’. At the end of the session, SADC provided a site tour of some of its business parks for members of the Logistics Council. This included a visit to Schiphol Logistics Park to see developments such as the AMS Cargo Center, then headed to Schiphol Trade Park, where they learned more about the highly sustainable ABC Square complex and the ongoing BREEAM recertification of Schiphol Trade Park. The day closed with a short tour of C-Bèta, a farmhouse converted using circular principles that serves as an experiment and knowledge lab to inspire further circular development and activity, particularly in the construction sector.
