Sustainability: a challenge for the construction industry

Embracing a sustainable mindset is even more crucial when it comes to the construction sector. The construction industry is responsible for 20-25% of global emissions. To have a chance of limiting global heating to well below 2°C and fulfill the Paris Agreement, the construction sector must completely decarbonize by 2050.
