Sustainability in the construction industry

Sustainable practices are no longer a choice. Draw inspiration from innovative sustainable practices seen in diverse pockets across the world and find ways to adopt these approaches in capital projects.

Emissions and waste from the construction industry are raising red flags across the world. This waste includes toxic material like lead and asbestos that is difficult to dispose. Add upstream emissions from transporting construction material and downstream waste from demolition—and it’s clear that the construction industry has to take urgent action to reduce its Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and adopt sustainable practices.

The goals set for the industry are steep. The clock is ticking, and if the industry does not respond, it will be among the major contributors of global warming, vanishing glaciers, rising sea levels, unpredictable weather patterns, wildfires, and the acidification of the oceans.  Explore this guide to find cues for the broad adoption of sustainability practices on capital projects.
