Sustainable building

 

Sustainable buildingThe building sector accounts for up to 40% of total energy use, 30% of raw material use, almost 40% of greenhouse gas emissions and around 40% of the solid waste generated in developed economies*.

Sustainable building aims at reducing the environmental impact of a building over its entire lifetime, while optimizing its economic viability and the comfort and safety of its occupants.

When it’s applied to construction, sustainable development requires an integrated and innovative approach - from design and building, through occupation, maintenance and renovation and all the way through to deconstruction. Sustainable construction dramatically reduces the environmental impact of a building over its entire lifetime, while providing healthier and more comfortable living and working environments.
