Sustainability and the Construction Industry 🌿🏗️
In the construction sector, up to 70% of demolition waste can be reused. However, in Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovenia, most of this building materials ends up in landfills.
The construction industry has a significant impact on climate change. Investing in sustainable technologies and their practical implementation holds incredible potential in the fight to protect our planet. That’s exactly why the CirCon4Climate project was initiated, with the mission to strengthen circular economy practices in the construction industry to effectively combat climate change.
“Circular Economy from my perspective is the best and most effective tool to combat climate change and biodiversity loss. For the first time, we are not only talking about the environment but also about the economy. We are showing that the right circular business model could be profitable from an economic, social, and environmental perspective. And it could be done without sacrificing comfort of our everyday life.” – says Agnieszka Sznyk, PhD, President of INNOWO, in an interview conducted by the European Climate Initiative (EUKI).
