Nouveaux materiaux pour une construction plus responsable

De nouveaux usages et de nouveaux matériaux constituent une opportunité pour l’industrie du bâtiment et de la construction, actuellement un des secteurs qui contribue le plus à la crise climatique par ses émissions de gaz à effet de serre et ses déchets. Sous la pression des chaînes d’approvisionnement, des opinions publiques, et de l’évolution des normes, ces nouveaux matériaux pourraient se transformer en impératifs de survie.

Contexte et enjeux : le secteur de la construction doit réduire son impact environnemental

L’influence humaine a réchauffé l’atmosphère, les océans et les terres, sans équivoque. Chacune des quatre dernières décennies a été successivement plus chaude que toute décennie qui l’a précédée depuis 1850.
