GLOBAL (June 29, 2016) - Through Zureli, the green building community will be able to source for products and services that will help make buildings more environmentally friendly and sustainable.
With over 60 percent of the world's building projects expected to integrate some form of environmentally-friendly feature within their designs by 20181, the market for green building products is unquestionably one of the construction industry's biggest areas of focus.
In anticipation of growing industry demand, Zureli, a global online marketplace for green building products, services and technology has launched. The new platform will connect members of the building and construction industry giving them ideas and information to help them achieve sustainability goals, as well as creating a unique community centred around the sector.
"Zureli's mission is to create a one-stop shop where products, services and technology that have a positive impact on buildings, society and the environment in particular, are available. We want to champion the green building movement and create a commercial focal point for it," said Seb Worthington, CEO of Zureli.
The launch of Zureli is set against the backdrop of a global construction industry whose output volume is expected to grow by more than 70 percent – to $15 trillion – by 2053.
Singapore-headquartered Zureli will bring together developers, architects, engineers, contractors, business owners, consultants and others who operate in the green building sector. Visitors to the website will be able to browse through a broad range of relevant products and services covering building, renewable energy, construction and other vertical markets as the platform develops. There is also a social networking function on the site as well as industry news, peer to peer reviews and more.
Users subscribe to Zureli's website for a modest fee that is tiered depending on a particular user's needs. Subscribers also make a green contribution of their own, with Zureli pledging to plant up to five trees per month dependent on a subscriber's selected package. This is managed through leading environmental organization, Trees for the Future.
For a limited time, as part of Zureli's promotional launch, users can register for a free account which will allow them to list a product or service at no cost for the first 3 months.
The company, founded in December 2015, is primed for growth, and ongoing emphasis for greater environmental contribution from all industries has been a central influencing factor in its creation.
"In light of recent environmental initiatives – both proposed and implemented – and landmark events such as the UN Paris Agreement, the transition to a low carbon economy is unstoppable. We see an irrepressible shift towards green building practices and it is also an exciting opportunity to engage with this rapidly growing and very important industry," said Cash van Halder, COO of Zureli.
