Sustainability eBook Now In German!

A translated version of the IGS Sustainability eBook is now available in German.

The latest edition adds to those previously published in French, Japanese, Turkish, Spanish, Chinese and Italian, with more expected.

The original English language eBook, called Preparing the ground for a brighter future, was based on IGS Vice-President Nathalie Touze’s Giroud Lecture ‘Healing The World: A Geosynthetics Solution’.

The eBook was launched in April, last year, to coincide with Earth Day 2020 and seeks to raise awareness of how geosynthetics play a powerful role in building a sustainable future.

German Chapter President Dr. Martin Ziegler said: “It is great this eBook is now available in German; the sustainability credentials of geosynthetics are an important message to get across. Against the backdrop of the ongoing discussions about CO2 savings and the obligation to prove this in future construction projects, the booklet is a great help in raising awareness among decision-makers of the sustainability of building with geosynthetics. I hope our members will download this exciting read and share it with their network.”
