The construction industry, a cornerstone of societal development, finds itself at a crossroads where progress comes at the expense of a substantial environmental footprint. Responsible for a staggering 40 percent of global CO2 emissions, the industry has high energy consumption with most of its heavy machinery and equipment still heavily leaning on fuel.
In this panel discussion, the concept of sustainable construction will be defined, emphasizing the imperative use of recyclable and renewable materials, while also examining strategies to minimize energy consumption and waste production in building projects.
Recognising that sustainable construction extends beyond project completion, the panel will delve into design considerations that minimize environmental impact throughout a building's lifespan.
Furthermore, the panel will address waste management and pollution control, examining the generation of hazardous waste in construction and proposing effective waste disposal and management strategies to prevent pollution.
This panel discussion aims to foster a collaborative dialogue among industry experts, policymakers, and stakeholders to identify practical solutions and innovative approaches for promoting sustainable construction practices.
Join us in this conversation as we navigate the path toward a sustainable future, redefining the construction industry's role in global environmental stewardship.
