The future of sustainable construction: case studies from South and Vale I 14/07/2021, 12:30pm
With massive resource use and pollution production, can construction ever be sustainable?
Construction is the cause of 50% of the world’s green house gas emissions, 23% of global air pollution and 50% of landfill waste. With issues around the energy use, material choice and waste created in construction itself and the emissions arising from the operational use of buildings and homes, there is an urgent need for new construction practices that don’t cost the earth.
Join Oxfordshire Greentech and Cambridge Cleantech, in association with Constructing Excellence Oxford Club and South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils, to hear about the current situation and future prospects of sustainable construction.
