The construction industry is more than aware of the urgency to build more robust sustainability foundations into its operations to lessen the environmental impact.
With around 40 per cent of man-made global carbon emissions arising from constructing and operating buildings, it is fair to say the industry often falls under the spotlight for its negative contribution to the planet.
