The Real Deal. Post Fossil Construction for Game Changers
|Author||Fabian Hörmann ed.|
Roughly half of the raw materials we extract go into the world’s built environment. Construction creates an estimated one-third of the globe’s overall waste and at least 40 per cent of carbon emissions. These are devastating figures, but they also mean that the construction sector has the power to make a relevant contribution to reversing the climate emergency. In several short essays, this book develops a global perspective on economic, social, and ecological changes in the industry, highlights the experiences of various market players in interviews, presents best practice examples, and dispels the most common prejudices regarding sustainable construction.
