Cécile van Oppen

Copper8 / Netherlands / Sustainability expert

Cécile is the co-founder of niche consulting firm Copper8. Copper8 has its’ origins in the conviction that ‘sustainable construction’ includes but also surpasses the notion of energy-savings: one must also consider materials used, as well as compensating increasing urbanisation by facilitating the conservation and growth of natural ecosystems. Moreover, buildings have huge educational potential: communicating the message of sustainability to its’ users and visitors.

Focused on accelerating the transition to the Circular Economy, Copper8 has been involved in several iconic circular construction projects in the Netherlands including Stadstuin Overtoom, Alliander Duiven and the QO Hotel. Cécile is also a member of the national Transition team for Circular Construction.
